The postcard has returned! Sundance - second round

I received my self addressed post card today from the Sundance film festival for my Starry Night submission. This just means that they did indeed get my submission. There was no happy face on it like one from last year but if you look closely on the address side there is a big cut on it - perhaps that happened at the post office?
By the way this postcard didn't begin it's life as a postcard, it was a traditional open/close card from a stationary set I had long before I made the Starry Night animation, but how fitting right! So I cut the card in half and made it into a postcard - apparently it worked (as long as you are with in postal code regulation size you can do this).
Anyway, last year I think they informed submitters sometime in December if they were accepted or not. Either way, I'm glad you all seem to like it : )

Starry Night Goes to Sundance

After I finished my Starry Night animation I wondered if the Sundance Film Festival was currently accepting submissions and they are! So I sent out a "USA shorts" category dvd yesterday! It wasn't' too difficult since I had done this last year and was familiar with the requirements, how to register, fill out the forms and make the dvd cover etc. Last time all I got back was a happy face on my self addressed return postcard and even if I don't get anything more than that this time, there is true gratification in chasing my dream, there really is. But you could wish me luck anyway : ) This picture is of my dvd package that I sent out (click to enlarge).
