And In Other News...

The New York Times is not the only paper to document the difficulties scientists have in communicating with Washington DC. Scientists Ask Congress to Fund $50 Billion Science Thing.

But even worse is the news that the Super Monkey Collider Loses Funding.

We can be comforted, though, by the reassuring report that maybe we've been wrong about the Bush administration all along. After all, Bush Finds Error in Fermilab Calculations.

At last...

Our movie is done!

Or, maybe:


Holy cow.

A little clarification: our part is done. The edit is done. The movie exists, we love it, and we are extremely proud of it.

Now we turn it over to Kate Simko, our composer, to finish scoring the music, and Rich Rankin, our sound designer, to clean up all the sound, and Tyler Roth, our colorist, to make all the scenes match and make sure everything looks as good as it can. And Luke Haddock, our visual effects artist, is still working on some of the graphics. We have lo-resolution versions in there now, but he will soon give us the full-res graphics that we can then drop in place.

Now: I burn about 10-15 dvds for immediate mailing to some of the contacts I mentioned earlier and wait for our post-production team to finish up on their end.

Oh, yeah --- and send out another round of "can you help us?" fund-raising letters. Some of you might see some in the mail soon...

It's hard to believe I'm actually writing these words! It's been over three years...

More updates as they happen... but for now, I'm still trying to let it sink in.
