Details to follow (it's 3 am and I have a video shoot at 8:30 tomorrow. Umm... today. Soon.) but suffice to say that the Chicago "Really" Short Film Fest was a lot of fun and I am now an award-winning filmmaker.


Well, the whole evening was pretty fun. The films were a big variety -- some comedy, some drama, a couple music videos, mostly from Chicago but a couple from California and New Jersey -- and all under 15 minutes. And three bands played, including the roof-tearing-off The Mystechs.

Ted McGillicutty, Man of Action came home with two honors -- Ted was one of three films chosen from the festival to be shown on WTTW's Image Union. And Chicago film critic Erik Childress chose Ted as the winner of the "eFilmCritic.com Award" (it's a very nice certificate).
