I just rewatched Black Sands. (yes, I know...but I'm down to about once a day now) This time I unexpectedly laughed when I got to the 'run to the hug' part cuz it ever so slightly put me in mind of the night I met Bret in Chicago. He stood there looking all devastatingly handsome, smiled at me and I (practically) ran and attacked him with a violent hug.
Minor differences of course, there was squealing instead of a cool soundtrack (
certainly didn't run towards me.
As I recall he sort of braced himself....he might have thought I was going to jump on. (I should have, dammit)
I'm sure there were a few sharp glances fired my way for that move...and it certainly rocked my world.
Oh hell....I'm gonna watch it one more time.
I can't seem to find any more info or pics relating to this project. I'm so curious about it. I wonder if Bret has done any other bits of work that we just haven't stumbled upon. I would love to know what he thinks about the final project. According to some convo between Dugan O'Niel and R/D on fb, it was only recently completely finished. If it was a project close to Bret's heart I would think he might promote it a bit on myspace like Jemaine did Sheepy & Robert, or some other way...but maybe it was just a job.
I guess I don't really know what people do with their short films. Submit them to contests? This one had to have cost a chunk of change to produce.
