Sundance Laureate 1

Here is Clay's great new trailer for his hilarious short film My Mom Smokes Weed.

Whither the trailer for Lovers Of Hate? I'm not sure, but I do know that there are some pretty special promotional items being put together in time for its premiere. I was just going back through old e-mails, as I often do when I'm procrastinating, and found the one in which Lovers Of Hate went from being a hazy maybe to a sure thing - a sure thing that was suddenly going to be in production in less than two months. That e-mail came on November 18th. And then a month and change later, a year ago today, I landed back in the United States after an extended filmmaking trip in Costa Rica. I remember during that first week there, sitting in a slightly grimy hostel room, watching hundreds of ants swarm out of the guts of my MacBook and wishing I was home. The trip got a lot better after that, and we ended up making a movie I'm really proud of, and now here I am a year later, sitting here with all the windows open, hoping it gets cold in time for Christmas, and making a futile attempt to quantify.
