Umm... you do.

Yes... Myself, Miriam, and Sean, collectively known as Animated State, have some news: Our first animated short film has been selected by the Cannes Film Festival to appear there this year.

Oh. My. God.

I mean, Hi/Lo = Awesome. Phoenix Film Festival? Sweet! LA Film Festival? Damn that's cool.

But Cannes? CANNES?

Holy fucking biscuit hopping christ on a cracker! It's fucking Cannes! Sadly at $1400 for flights each... I don't think any of us will be going there :(

That is SO awesome! YOU SHOULD GO. SCREW IT! JUST GO! lol

My grandmother starred in an independent film a few years ago. She was the start. In her mid-70s. lol. It went to the California and New York festivles, I think. She played an old psychic lady who was trying to take the body of a young girl. I love my grandmother.

Have you looked to see if you can do a discounted flight to someplace like London or elsewhere and drive?


I'm going to brag about knowing you!!

(although, oddly enough, that makes you the second person on my FL with a film at Cannes... so that's rather unusual...)

It's not a short drive, would cost a ton to get there still, plus it would be.. around a week of driving.

Who was the other person?
