Dream Systems is a finalist in the Animahenasyon 2007 festival!

Click here to read the complete list of finalists.

We’re joining the Animahenasyon 2007 Pinoy Animation Festival. They have a dedicated music video category, so I’m hoping our chances are good.

I also blogged about Dream Systems in my personal site. It’s been over a year since the launch and we’ve been lying low.  But seeing the film again made me realize it deserves another chance to be seen by the public. Spread the love and all that 😉

Welcome to our new site! We’re still working out the kinks, but we’ve migrated all of our old posts into this new WordPress space. Comments couldn’t be migrated though, sorry 😐

We also added an Awards page to list down all the festivals we’ve joined (and to show off our pretty laurels). We found out recently that we didn’t win at either DeReel or Short Film Corner – but that’s okay. The fact that somebody across the world has seen our video makes the experience worth it 🙂

Dream Systems is having its Australian premiere this Saturday, May 5, 2007 @ Glitch Bar and Cinema, Melbourne, Australia, as part of the DeReel Independent Film Festival. It shows at 6:40 pm.

How I found out: The program is here. Their listing for Dream Systems (with a little writeup and a still from the film) is here. And I am all the way over here. What to do…

Now, I don’t really know a lot of people who are in Melbourne, but if you know someone, please spread the word! 😀

Still from Dream SystemsDream Systems is now listed in the Cannes Short Film Corner‘s list of films!

Our listing
I haven’t received an official e-mail or anything yet and I don’t want to jump the gun, so I’ll consider it unofficially official, until I hear something. Still – yay!

(And there are two other short films from the Philippines listed as well: “To Ni” by Vic Acedillo, Jr. and “Vacation Thing” by Richard Reyes. Hurray Philippines!)

We’ve figured out that “accreditation” means “you can now go to Cannes; we’ll give you a badge that gets you into most of the events; see you there”. It does NOT mean “oh, your short film’s been accepted and is in competition” 😛

Actually, with this additional knowledge I don’t feel dampened at all, as the thought of being allowed to go to Cannes is pretty cool enough. Of course I’m not going (financial concerns) but everyone’s excited anyway, and we’re caught up in romantic daydreams of taking the next flight to France 😉

The list of short films in competition will be announced on May 4. See you then!

“Nous avons le plaisir de vous confirmer votre accréditation au 60e Festival de Cannes.

We are pleased to confirm your accreditation at the 60th Festival de Cannes.”

Don’t panic.
