Support Your Local Cowboy...


Last Spring, my ol' movie buddy Patrick entered his Western, "Absaroka," in the Wyoming Short Film Contest.


And WON!!!
Congratulations, Patrick!

Well, he's thrown his hat into the ring again, and this time...the stakes are much higher.



The winner of the OpenFilm: "Get it Made" Competition will receive $500,000 to follow up their short with a feature-length movie!

To help make that happen, I hope you'll find it in your hearts to scoot on over to OpenFilm to view and vote for "Absaroka." 


I reckon Patrick will be mighty obliged.

Thank you!

Enjoy the Film!
