They all got to start from somewhere, back in my elementary days, there was a kid that used to film movies, kinda like this (minus graphics and effects).. Now he does real film in Canada.. I always wished when I was younger that I got involved with that.. It looked so cool to make your own films, but I never did, I just went to sports and socializing..
indeed, it was just that while reading your post I had a mental image of Kevin Smith handing tapes to people of short films he made.
It made me smile
Joey, you obviously have talent, keep it up man!
