Microcinema Milestones

Today I posted the 300th review at Microcinema Scene, "The Hook." It was also the 1,000 story published at the site. That includes over 500 news items and more than 60 articles since we opened the doors on July 6, 2003.

Talk about a long and winding road.

I still love the grassroots DV scene. The guys who made "The Hook" are a good reason why. They are hunkered down in southern Illinois just doing their thing, trying to network with others, attending fests, helping out fellow filmmakers.

You can check them out--and their short--for yourself, right here.

The other day I got a DVD from a high school girl in California, some cutout animations she made into two compelling shorts. I have recently received screeners from England and Hungary. I've been reading about the emerging African micro scene. There are so many voices, so many vistas.

Amazing feat, JOD. You're the heart and soul of MCS right now. Without you, it evaporates into nothingness.

Keep up the good work.
