A quick drop by to say that Fixed Up, the movie I co-wrote with the unparalleled Joy Borgardt(who also directed) has been accepted into the Best Shorts Competition. High fives to the entire talented team involved in this project, including the incomparable Jason Beaumont, who shot and edited the film and was overall a wonderful resource for this newbie.

The judging is later this month. Meanwhile, please enjoy this trailer!
