Finally able to start writing thank you letters to those who donated money to Freedom Dance in Edward’s name.
Met with Freedom Dance webmaster and all around great guy John Bintz at a cafe. He brought his laptop and as we sipped coffee, John ripped a DVD of the August 23rd broadcast of Artworks (Maryland Public TV’s arts program on which Edward was given a small tribute.) The audio from that is now up on this site. Check it out! (Many thanks to Katrina Threat for getting us the DVD! It means so much to the Hilbert family.)
With Craig to pick up some new animation … the final scene … an epilogue of sorts which we’re calling the Magic Carpet Ride … (watch the movie to find out what that’s all about!).
Craig’s animation is really good. I know that any accolade this movie gets will be all about the animation. Rightly so. It’s well done and what gives this movie its individuality. Its fingerprint. When people think of Freedom Dance, they’re going to think of Craig’s animation. It’s that simple.
Received invitation from the Embassy of Hungary to attend a reception at American University, the opening of a 1956-themed photo exhibit. Whoo hoo! Big chance to spread the word some more! :0)
