Getting Side-Tracked

Burke and I have realized over the past few years that we've become very side-tracked.  It's a sad sad realization, yet at the same time it's a good thing too.  We've let the business side of things creep in and take over our ambition for filmmaking.  That sounds pretty melodramatic.  But, I think that this happens to most of us on multiple occasions through out our lives.

So, we're not going to take this crap anymore.  From now on you're going to see a couple of focused brothers out there making their movies.  Will anyone end up seeing our movies?  Who the H knows.  But we really don't care.

Oh, and I've really been liking Mike and Ike's lately.

Commercial Contest

Back in December Rhett and I entered a commercial contest sponsored by the Utah Film Commission.  The contest winner's commercials air during the Sundance Film Festival.  The purpose of the commercials is to promote filmmaking in the state of Utah.  It's a great contest and we've made some really good friends by participating each year.

Anyway, so this year we wanted to do something really different from what we normally do, which is a lot of dead pan comedy and basically Rhett just acting wierd.  So, we went for a more serious tone.   We worked for 40 hours straight.  Seriously.  I'm not even kidding around.  Candyce brought us some Pita Pit at 3 am.  They we're tasty.   

In any case, the judges ended up liking what we put together and we won some of the awards!  It was a fun day.  The whole crew at the film commission are great to work with.

Here are the spots we did...
