Hi Ron,

So glad you finally got a demo reel out!  I am on a kludged-together system using a tablet with a phone connection wi-fied to my portable (don't ask!), and so I cannot download because it is horribly expensive and uses up the small bandwidth I have on the tablet, but at least I can communicate.

The animation school has had major problems, the politicos apparently were jerking me around, insincere, probably using the project specs to impress the President in a list of what they were supposedly working on.  They would demand instant updates, presentations, etc. and say they would back me when I applied to the state for financing, but whenever I asked them to set up an appointment to go in together, or a letter of support they would either have some lame excuse or set an appointment and neither show up nor even have the courtesy to cancel.  Real assholes.  I finally told them to call me when they were serious and they blew up, accusing me of wanting to game the system for my own profit!  I cut that short by telling them they could red-line any budget item they felt was out of line, but by then the trust had been broken. 

So I am trying to do it on my own, looking for some land on which to build a house and a structure for a studio/school for about 10 students.  I am getting old, and don't have much time left to do long-term projects, so all I can do is keep slogging along and live vicariously through those of you who are actually doing things.  I am filling my time with studying screen writing, directing, photography, etc. to be prepared when I finally can afford things like latex, a camera, software, etc.  . . . you know, the STUFF!

Thank you for your enthusiasm for the project, and, who knows, maybe it will eventually be real and I will have you down here teaching a workshop!

Hopefully my internet connection will be upgraded, I am living in a rather remote area, and having the devil of a time getting an ADSL connection put in, so I will probably be on irregularly at best, don't think I have abandoned THE QUEST!

As ever, your work inspires me, awes me, and I am very thankful for your friendship.  My email address is mshellabarger@hotmail.com if you want to write.
