      I would appreciate an update on this project, we haven't had one since September 2013.

      Also, those of us who pledged for other DVDs, when will be receiving them?

      Thanks,

      Thank you Caroline! It was great to meet you as well. It was a very exciting screening in LA.

      Dear Dennis & Amy,

      Just wanted to congratulate you on the WONDERFUL restoration of Portrait of Jason! I so enjoyed meeting Dennis, briefly, at the screening in Los Angeles. I received my poster in the mail about a week ago, and it is just stunning. I can't wait to frame and hang it.

      So happy for your success! All the best!

      Hi, Dennis and Amy-

      Congratulations on exceeding the goal and thanks for the other DVDs! I'll (finally) send out a Trash DAnce screener next week! Happy holidays.

      Dear Caroline,
      I'm sorry to say, but the work on IN THE LAND OF THE HEAD HUNTERS and the 35mm tests of PORTRAIT OF JASON went so well that I was able to run to LAX and get an earlier flight -- I'm leaving in about 90 minutes. But let's stay in touch. My email is milefilms@gmail.com

      That said, if I you can squeeze in a cup of coffee while you are here, I'd love to meet you.

      Hi Dennis,
      January is totally nuts for me, and I wouldn't have time to properly prepare for your visit, which will be very enthusiastically attended. Let's keep in touch about your schedule so that we can either take advantage of one of your LA trips, or potentially, fly you out.
      Cheers,
      Caroline

      Caroline, I'm actually going to be in town working with the UCLA Film & TV Archive this Sunday to Tuesday, but it's a whirlwind tour to get a digital transfer of IN THE LAND OF THE HEAD HUNTERS done. i'll be back in LA this January 25-26 for the AMIA board members and I might be able to do Where's Shirley? a day or so before that. It's just a matter of what other work I might have scheduled at that time.

      Dear Dennis,
      Hooray!! I would love to meet you next time you are in LA. At some point, I'd also like to talk with you about
      the possibility of giving your lecture at UCLA.

      Thank you so much for the kind words! We haven't given the lecture in LA yet but we're there often.
