Congrats. And good luck. I voted (votez). Hope you win the camera! And, I showed the short SCIENCE! to my whole class!

Great little film - that was a Northwestern project?  Did you actually shoot at an airport concourse?   You and your filmmaking kids rock! Very impressive film.  Great storytelling.  And great production values.  -K. Ennis

You are so rock and roll dude, Like, You are touching-up your own photos- or you don't age. Do you have a agent hunting around for you? - C. Kaplan

It was good to see you in Cannes, albeit briefly, and I hope you had a good, and productive, time. I will make sure I watch 'Science' and hopefully we can put it in this year's programme. Just to let you know, The Morning Guy will be part of our selection of shorts that will go on the Tiscali at the very end of June -Oli

It's so great to hear from you! It seems like you've been very busy and doin' great. M. Malley

To say it was fantastic to meet you would be an understatement!

How wonderful to get your email... I read your first caption at Paris airport after 36 hours and I laughed out loud. I look forward to seeing the rest of your blogg but it is time to get to the clients office. What a great treat to receive your email!!!!! -Devon John Landau

Cool site man, well done - All the best -Richard Deakin (Crazy welsh jack kerouac biopiccer)

Thank you for the wonderful pics, Lovely to meet you, hope Cannes was fruitful for you and that the shorts went down well. You are right it is all about networking so we should keep in touch for sure. All the best - Barbara D'Alterio

So glad to have met you this year in Cannes. I don't beleive I made you photo diary but it is an awsome idea. -Reba

Once met never forgotten – man I don’t need a photo to see those TM glasses, beard and Wellesesque physique. Good to meet you again, I’ve shown your reel to everyone I can think of who’d appreciate it. Love that morning guy! I hear from Tom that you and he might be getting into bed together on a project (you Americans can be so coy). Keep me informed I’m looking to get involved in something worthwhile and have many skills and some cash ($$$$$) I can contribute. Let me know what you have up your sleeve and we’ll see.

It was lovely meeting you and its quite wonderful of you to post all those pics so those of us lazy-butt people with no camera can enjoy the visual memories too. -Joanna

The photos on your site are great! Thanks for sending the link. Glad you had a successful trip, see you at the next one! -Rachel

I must say I really admire your website. You have done a great job with that! ... You are right, Cannes is all about networking, I will try to keep you updated on what's going on in the film industry of Sweden. Kindest Regards - Lizette Jonjic

Well...I must say, I am one of your 'fan-base' ;-)

I didn't want to add to your inbox pile-up while in Cannes but will now happily tell you that your website is the most fabulous online festival coverage I've ever seen!
