-Copy Cats are Dirty Rats
I had help making my film and would like to thank those people on my blog. Hobo Divine, Bill Schwarz, Lisa Ovens, Laurie MacMillan, Scott Bucsis, Sue Hill, Lorne Jee, Blessing Mubaiwa, Clayton Gunguwo, Lance Burger, Bardel Animation and The NFB. I could not have attended the film festival if it had not been for the generosity of my excellent friend, patron, & partner in crime, Lisa Southam.
This is the Michigan Theatre, it’s in Ann Arbor Michigan. Home of the world renowned Ann Arbor Film Festival. I was very lucky to be able to attend this festival, as it so happened to be that my film, ‘Ten Counting Cat-the motion picture’ was selected for screening. This was the world premiere of my first film, and my first film festival. Over the course of a week I met many excellent people and made friends in Ann Arbor. When in Ann Arbor I stayed at the home of Roland Neynaber, a most excellent host. I fell in love with the community, this was a truly unforgettable experience...
