Okay, so as we’ve moved more definitively into the podcasting realm, we’ve slacked off a bit in the old-school blog-and-email messaging. I’d say that’s going to change, but in all honesty, given limited time and resources, you’re more likely to see regular updates on the aforementioned podcast and via our Facebook page and Twitter feed. (Not that we’re all that diligent there either, but still…) I won’t bore you all with a lot of big news, but to recap some of the highlights of the past year:
- The podcast has featured interviews with filmmakers Barry Gribble, Michael C. Dougherty, BigTony, Philip J. Cook, Kevin Good, and Aaron Shirley, as well as a filmmakers’ roundtable with Francis Abbey, Richard Cutting, Lonnie Martin, and Ron Newcomb (not to mention contributions from a slew of others in our regular “Community Question” segment).
- The podcast also launched our first video episode, with a behind-the-scenes look at our work in the 2013 48 Hour Film Project.
- Several Tohubohu veterans taught filmmaking classes with the Havre de Grace Drama Guild.
- Still more Tohubohu folks joined in on the 48 Hour Film Project in other cities.
- We took home several awards for “The Writer”s Dilemma” at this year’s TIVA Peer Awards.
- Bill took on a role as Vice President of the Board of Directors for TIVA (which is occupying a fair amount of time in and of itself).
And those are just a few of the high points. But in the interests of looking forward, it’s time once again to put out the call for this year’s Washington DC 48 Hour Film Project! Yes, Tohubohu is officially entered, so now’s the time to let us know if you’d like to join the team. Drop us a line, leave us a comment, or otherwise get word that (a) you’d like to hop on board, and (b) what you can bring to the team. We look forward to hearing from you, veterans and newcomers alike!
