Drawing the Tiger: The Next Chapter(s)

Happy Happy New Year! Despite our personal filmmaking roller coaster angst (see below) and the heart-sinking chaos of the world, I believe 2015 is going to surprise us with its LOVE and ABUNDANCE. This world has an amazing capacity for both.
2014 was a big year. Like, HUGE! We finished the film (okay, all but music, sound, color and graphics)—and I can’t quite
