    Congrats to JDS

    Let me take a moment to say congrats to Jack Daniel Stanley. He's made four short films in his life, and has quite a track record:

    His first film took 2nd place in our ZombieFest.
    His second film took 2nd place in our Sci-Fest.
    His third film took 1st place in our HeroFest.
    And his fourth film took 1st place in our HorrorFest.

    Quite a track record. As Hudson and some others have said, he's probably outgrown our six-minute festival.

    I agree.

    I've had my eye on JDS since "Shed"; for a first-timer to produce something like that was just amazing. To do so in the face of a hurricane that wiped out everything he owned is inspiring. And he hasn't slowed down, hasn't skipped a beat, just gotten better and refined his craft. His understanding of character and art direction and visual storytelling is first-rate. He goes full-bore even with no budget and no funds; the man cannot be stopped.

    It's time to see what he can do in a longer form.

    Which is why I'm pleased to announce that my company is signing Jack to direct a full-length low-budget feature film that we will be funding.

    This contest provided the stiffest competition yet, and in some ways I was hoping someone else would win so it wouldn't be all-Jack all-the-time but the guy went and won again... so congratulations Jack, this is a big night, and it just got a bit bigger.

    A large part of my relocation to NC was to establish a new business, and we hope to be involving DVXUser members along the way. David Jimerson is my business partner; we've just launched our first product (The HVX BootCamp DVD) and we have more products in development with a select group of DVXUser members. The talent and skill level on this board is amazing, and we're grateful to have a family like this to work with. Thank you all for your participation in the fests, and for the knowledge you all freely share with all of us every day. I've met some amazing people through this board. You never know who is watching, who is listening, and where it might lead. For Jack it just led to him getting his first full-length film project underway.

    So, JDS, once again, congrats. Take this night to celebrate, 'cause come Monday we have to get to work!

    Wow that rocks. Jack has certainly shown his talent in the last few fests and his ability to attract talented people to help him see his dreams.


    Looking forward to the feature.
