Enjoy The Ride seeks venue (& audience) at Film Festivals

I have entered my music video "Enjoy The ride" into film festivals under short Animation category. As it turns out there are many avenues for independent producers to showcase their work and I am sure those in the know will find this information a repetetion, but I was glad to "discover" it.

So now the wait begins....with crossed fingers and some anticipation, first I am waiting to hear from Santa Cruz Film festival. They were supposed to have published the finalists around early March, but I have been told, the list should be out this week.

5 Annual from May 5, 2006 to May 13, 2006

SouthSide Film Festival
3 Annual from June 15, 2006 to June 18, 2006

Los Angeles Film Festival
12 Annual from June 22, 2006 to July 02, 2006

California International Animation Festival
1 Annual from July 15, 2006 to July 16, 2006

For those trying to find a showcase for their work, I highly recommend WITHOUT A BOX website. They have organized all the film festivals into different categories and the site allows you to submit your entry to these festivals. It will even check if your production qualifies.

This music video is an extension of the audio version and seeks to further expand on the vision of making engineering and sciences fun and desirable for our kids today. Helping to promote that message is GK a consummate engineer who loves his field.

Main setting for the video is the circuit board, which serves to provide a link between the computer terminal outside and the computer chips on it.
