So Close, But So Far

I can't begin to express how thankful I am for all the support, kind words, views, and feedback I've received throughout the Yobi Film Contest from so many of you. It's been one nerve-racking experience week after week, but here I am - eliminated.

I'll be honest, plain and simple, it hurts. So much energy was invested in this, and this anti-climactic ending has me shaking my head. I really felt based on the quality of my short, the persistence of my promotion, and my well-seasoned contest strategy that I'd be able to make the finals amongst my competition. For what it's worth, I can tell myself that I gave it my all.

There's a new season of Yobi Film starting in June, maybe I'll try again. Maybe I'll search out some new festivals and contests . . . maybe I'll just try and forget about this one.

Until next time, thanks again for all your efforts - it takes some of the sting away.
