Some people like them, some don't. Thanks for watching anyway.

I never claimed to be a big shot, but I'm proud of any award no matter how small.

It's an FBI warning, so it's not copyrighted or trademarked. Plus I made them from raw elements myself.

Maybe people should stop posting on this thread, as it has already been mentioned in a different one, and discussed there. Perhaps if you would take the time to find it, you would post there instead.

Sarcastic in a non-offended way...

Look, people like and hate movies all the time. I can handle the criticisms. Anyone who makes a movie & thinks everyone should or even would like it - is INSANE, or just not in touch with reality.

I'm just glad people can find something useful on the site and it helps get more movies made or done.

Someone mentioned the site on another thread... OOOoooooo... they also mentioned it on another site, should we only post there too?

You'd be surprised how many insane people you can get round these parts sometimes.

Peter, it's great that you want to work on your movies more, kudos for that. I've posted an update to the Filmmaker's FAQs that you might also find useful [see near bottom]

It's my dry wit and cynical humor. I usually don't mean offense. Sorry if you were.

Even if you were serious, it's not that offensive. Let's face it - that's the Central Nebraska Film Festival...

Everyone's gotta learn to take the heat.
