In the picture : "Today You are a Fountain Pen " screened at the Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Arena.

Hello World.
You won.
I've finally decided to join the twenty first century. Today I am a blogger.Just got an email that my short film :"Today you are a fountain pen" won the audience award at the Tampa Jewish Film Festival.
So much for all those nay sayers who have been skeptical of my art and especially this film. The film opened the festival. Opening night was at the Tampa Hockey arena in Florida. The film screened on the huge screens above the ice. It was the coolest screening I've ever been to with this film. It was also the coldest screening ever.I guess the meaning of art for me, today is to continue doing your thing, and learn to believe in yourself when everyone else stops believing in you.So for all of you out there who believe all those morons who tell you, you're no good. I have only one thing to say. They're wrong.One day, when I retire from filmmaking, I think I'll make T-Shirts. I want a shirt that says :"Don't listen to them. They're always wrong !"

It was really COOL (and I do mean COOL!!) to meet you, Dan, at the St. Petersburg Times Forum, home of the Tampa Bay Lightning, site of the Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival.
Today I Am a Fan of your film! Come back to Tampa soon,
