How Not to Suck at Networking

Festies! (film festival besties) At the Nashville Film Festival. Film is a collaborative medium. You need other people to help you make your movie.

Holy smokes ... without even realizing it Squishy Studios hit five years old!  We've been making movies for much longer than five years (one of my first was a super 8 Star Wars film when there was just two Star Wars movies in existence), but the name first appeared on the short film The Lords...

A Film Festival vs Comicon Film Festival

Dragon*Con is one of the biggest comicons in the U.S.  It's the East Coast San Diego comicon, essentially, being in Atlanta.  Last year, "Until the End of Everything" played in their Independent Film Festival, and it was a thrill to go to.  It was easily ten times bigger than our Phoenix Comicon.  This year "Zombie...

ZTB @ The Phoenix Comicon

"Zombie Team Building" played at the 2010 Phoenix Comicon.  It was a total blast.  Thanks to our zombie minions who helped and passed out postcards for us, and to Sam and Nate who helped make them.  Here's two behind the scene videos I shot on the experience: Part One Part Two
