      Greetings from Bezango, WA! This is a quick update about the status of the film. All the planned footage for the film has been shot (“It is in the can” as the director John Huston probably said a few times). We’ve been editing for about nine months now. You may think that the editing would go a lot faster. If this were our full-time gigs and we didn’t have 50+ hours of footage to work with it would go faster. As it is, we are happy to have whittled the footage down to the currently manageable 8.5 hours. Over the next few months we will bring it down to approximately 70-80 minutes, at which time the film will need to be color corrected and sound adjusted.

      As far as we know, this the most extensive documentary ever made about Pacific Northwest cartooning and comic creators. All of you are part of the project and we truly appreciate your contributions. We will be submitting it to film festivals at the beginning of the year, so keep your fingers crossed it will get in to a few. Either way we will be screening it somewhere in the Spring/Summer of 2015 and will keep you updated. We are very excited at how the film is evolving and we can't wait to share it with the world! Thanks for your support!

      Ron Austin & Louise Amandes
