the official 48HFP Awards Weekend.
    * A copy of Movie Magic Screenwriter 6, the premier screenwriting
software and the choice of Hollywood. ($250 value)

One of the judges told our fearless leader Ned Utzig that he wished there was an award for Best Overkill, because they would have given it to us for using a monstrous laser blast shot from space to kill only two people in a driveway. :-)  Too funny. Fun, fun, all around. It was a pleasure to be part of it.

And we're in the early stages of maybe doing something new, though I've been very negligent (sorry, Ned) in getting the script done with current events around here. Promise, Ned, very soon!
