A very awesome review of Speed of Fencing was written on Core77, a design blog. I especially love the title of the article. Yes, fencing SHOULD be filmed in slow motion. 🙂

Check it out!

Happy New Year! After several donations, I have finally been able to submit Speed of Fencing to a good group of festivals! Some of these festivals are very prestigious and some are smaller but have programming that is more related to my film.

So what kind of film is Speed of Fencing? Well, since the final version is only 3 minutes, it’s a short film and can even qualify as a short short film (no, not a typo). It’s not exactly a documentary but it’s not exactly a scripted film. Depending on the description of the festival, it can qualify as an experimental film. My biggest strength is that it is an action and sports film. For the few festivals that specialize in sport or action short films, those are the one I have submitted to.

And here’s my grand list…so far 🙂 I’ll be sure to update if I hear anything from the festivals. Since this is my first time, I’m not sure if it’s like applying to college (where they accept or reject you) or more like an interview (where they don’t really say anything until, out of the blue, they want you tomorrow). I guess we’ll just have to cross our fingers and wait for the notification dates to roll though. Yay!
