so, how to keep this anonymous and still share some news...

some visual effects guys from a fairly major production company (think: released a couple of big releases this past year) were in town and speaking to classes in the department.

during their tour of our facilities, Senior Prof showed them (among other things) a few edited minutes of my film.

I wasn't there (how did i miss this, you ask? i had to watch Baby TerminalMFA while TerminalMFA-Spouse went to a doctor appointment). anyway, i got reports from several fronts that the visual effects guys were laughing a lot and that one asked if he could get invited to our premiere.

which presumes we'll actually get to have one. kidding. we were going to have a small one anyway. but if we can get some people out here from this company, it would be a big coup.

and it was nice to hear that our little film made with no money might somehow attract some attention from major companies, given the right circumstances.

(this would have seemed way more impressive if i could tell you the actual company involved. really.)

I'm not sure if I'm much of a character witness, but I know the "fairly major production company" of which Terminal MFA speaks.

It's the real deal--founded and headed by someone who has made it both in Hollywood and Indie circles on his own terms, without "selling out" or compromising his vision.

I know that Terminal MFA is interested in preserving his anonymity, but this is a HUGE deal and I'm so excited for him!

Congrats ...

Awesome! I doubt I'd know the company even if you could say who they were, so I'll just take your word for it and say congrats!
