So Johnny Boston, are you a Cow member promoting your good work, or did you simply join the Cow to use these popular forums for free marketing?

Perhaps that first response was a bit harsh - this is a Film forum after all and I certainly don't have any films on Netflix.

Tell us more about your experience.

This looks interesting. Reminds me a little about an animated video done in 3d CGI about an artistic friend of the animator, who went thru something similar, but I'm blanking on the name. Had a really unique look as the sick friend's head was rendererd in 3-d but full of holes and gaps and warps.

Just by crazy (bad choice of words)coincidence, I watched a very cool DVD last night, a documentary on Frank Frazetta. Late in his life, he got a thyroid problem that crippled him up badly, but it was misdiagnosed as psychosomatic illness and they put him in the mental ward for a while, everyone thought he was crazy. Then he got out and got another diagnosis, got the thyroid treated, and went back to work. Later, he was hit by several strokes and lost fine motor skills in his right arm... so he re-trained his left arm and went back to work. Incredible story about an incredible artist, and a well-made doc. Though I hated the overly harsh high-key lighting in the interviews, the editing made up for it.

I hope this film helps Alan, it looks from the trailer at least to have all the parts of a good story in it.

Might also want to cross-post this topic in the indie/documentary forum.
