J + L in award, award, editing, sundance film festival

Sooo, last night was kinda the best night ever...  

Indie Game: The Movie won Best Editing within the Sundance World Cinema Documentary Competition.  We can not tell you how much this means to us and how completely and utterly our minds are blown.  We shot over 300 hours of footage in making this film, and the edit was, by far, the most difficult aspect of the process. We couldn’t be more proud to receive this award.

When we started this project, we had no idea it would evolve and progress to the point of taking us up on stage at the Sundance Film Festival....it’s crazy....it really is.

The two people pictured above were clearly having an out-of-body experience behind that podium.  It was a blur, a fantastic blur.  But lost in crazed haze were a few people we forgot to thank.

We would not be anywhere close to this point in our lives if it wasn’t for our amazing parents:  Remi, Debra, Betty and Ed. We can’t believe we forgot them...and it’s something I’m sure we’ll be hearing about for the next little while :)

And of course, thank you so much to the Sundance Film Festival.  The festival’s belief in this little film has very much changed our lives.  It’s been amazing, hugely educational and most importantly, endlessly inspiring. Specifically, we need to thank David Courier for his support and Shane Smith for his invaluable early encouragement.

Thank you again to everyone who supported the film - be it by preorder, tweet, blog, word of mouth and/or good vibes.  You made this honor possible.

Talk to you soon,

James & Lisanne.
