Karen Hey e.E,

I just watched your two films on Doorpost. Incredible, you are so talented! Vanessa Rising had me from the first second, I'd love to see that made into a full feature film. And Living Under Linda's Desk both cracked me up and saddened me. I cast my vote...good luck with both of them.
