It was an honor to be in such good company. The quality of the selections that I was able to see during the festival was across-the-board phenomenal. There's a good reason that the festival is an Academy/BAFTA/CSA Qualifier.

Mike and I are both in the process of getting features off of the ground now. Mike also has another short in the works, and you can bet that I won't be far behind with another one of my own.  

Thank you again for a great festival.

Sincerely,
Bob McKeon
