Yobi.tv Film Semi-Finalist!

I've tried to do my best to make it known that my comedy short The Gizmo Tree is currently one of 30 movies up for a first prize of over $10,000 in the Yobi.tv Film Contest. What makes this such a unique competition is that the semi-finalist's videos are as varied and unique as the movie makers themselves. Animations, comedies, dramas, experiments; There's really no way of knowing where I stand until the first set of films are eliminated this coming monday.

So, I'll make this short and sweet. If you've happened across my blog in the past, if you've visited from BlogExplosion or Entrecard, if you've clicked over from YouTube, if you've taken any interest in my shorts or musings at all, or been witness to my struggles and growth as an independent filmmaker - please take a moment to just check out my short and consider voting for me

I can't emphasize enough how few and far between opportunities like this come up. It's taken 4 months since joining Yobi.tv for this vote to begin, and it's been well over a year since the short was made. Your vote could literally make the difference in a film contest that's all about word of mouth. The sole judges in this competition have been viewers; people just like you who have clicked a thumbs up or thumbs down based purely on what they like. I've made it to the semi-finals, so that's something, but I don't want to sit back and hope things pan out. I want you to know how much I care about this.

Sign up with your email address, and give the Gizmo Tree a thumbs UP. That's it!

If you'd like to see more, I've created a promo video for my short and the contest. You can check it out below. Thanks for your interest, your time, and your support. It really does mean a lot to me.
