SEPTEMBER 2001
There's no beating around the bush, so to say, we all know what happened in September.  It was devastating, frustrating, depressing, frightening...I don't even know if I know enough words to describe it.  Luckily everyone I knew up there and even in the building was OK.  But my heart goes out to all the families and friends who lost loved ones.  I've decided with things kind of winding down in "HR Land" that this'll be my last entry.  I know you're probably screaming "No!"  "Say it isn't So!" but it is.  I'm gonna continue passing the film around Hollywood best I can and see where it gets me.  There are still a few festivals coming up that we have a shot at and that info will always be updated in the NEWS section of the site.  But it just seems like a good time to wrap this up. 
It's been 2 full years working on this.  Doesn't seem that long.  It's time to start concentrating on the next projects.  Whether that'll be "Super Lazy Guy" or maybe this "Disco Rocks!" short I'm just working on, who knows?  I had a blast working on HR.  I think we all did.  I thanked a lot of people in the film's end credits but now I feel like I have a whole new list of people I wanna thank for their support and kind  words over the year we've been running at festivals.  First off, I have to say I had a great cast in this thing.  Sabrina, Kevin, and Joe.  I just couldn't have asked for any better.  I look forward to working with them again (hopefully next time for some $$).  Scott Black, I think I've already mentioned, was just what I needed on the set as my A.D.  My Broho Phil Botti who not only saved me tons of $ but made the film better than I could ever have done myself.  My right hand man Steve The Hick Hicks I couldn't even begin to tell you how much this dude helped out.  Without him this thing wouldn't have happened.  He's a talented dude and better than that he listened to all my bitching and complaining on the side.  My sister Jen has also devoted way too much of her energy, patience and valuable time to help me realize this crazy dream I had.  There's no one better than her.  No One.  And last but not least these new friends I've made thru this experience.  They helped get HR to the viewing public and I thank them: Savage Steve Holland, Seth Sonstein, John Peterson, Scott Calonico, Doug Sakmann, Graham Fletcher-Cook, Veronica Hunter, Rich Ahlert, Rob Leddy, Terry Cronin, Cory Ryan, Jim Haverkamp, Eric Sommer, Chris Gore, Massawyrm, David Kleiler, Justin Doherty, John Halecky, Ron Lee, Jane Crawford, Rob Jones, Ivy Charmatz, Jeanette Catsoulis, Julianna Brannum, and Michael Lucio Sternbach.  So that's that I guess.  Keep on Keepin' On and I'll see ya in the future, not the pasture....
