We are very honored this year from the 2005 Inside Report Fan Films Awards.

Panic Struck Productions was kindly awarded and won the following categories:

- Best Cinematography "Revelations" Jack Foley
- Best CG "Revelations" Panic FX Team
- Best Actress " Revelations" Gina Hernandez
- Best Serious Film "Revelations"
We were also honored with a special award from Inside Report directly for "Outstanding Services"

catch me with me pants down - wow imagine that!

Thank you to Sky Wilson and her wonderful crew at Inside Report as well as the fans and TFN for this great honor. We are thrilled so many people enjoyed "Revelations" for what it was, and what we were able to achieve with volunteers from around the world and what we completed with so little. I want to thank my stunning cast and crew and all the many people who helped make "Revelations" possible! Thank you guys. This award is for you and your hard work!!

For those of you who have not heard or know about The Inside Report, it is a wonderful internet based show by 5heads Tall, which covers the Star Wars film genre as well as other independent films out there. They have been an excellent show to watch and as I understand this last segment was the last show of Inside Report, but they stated to look for the new year and a new show called "View It"

Be sure to check out their website for updates and to also watch achieved shows from the Inside Report. I am a huge fan of what these guys have done. The Inside Report came all the way over from the UK to cover the "Revelations" Theatrical Premiere Event in Baltimore, MD and they were wonderful to meet. You can download watch that segment from the premiere HERE.

5heads Tall also has the trailer out for their documentary film titled "George & Me" which looks to be a great piece on fans and how Star Wars influenced so many from around the world. Check out there Trailer HERE

Panic Struck at Sundance??

A cool piece of news to share. As you might recall (those of you who read this blog) Adobe did a spotlight article on Panic Struck Productions and specifically what we did using their products making our first film "Revelations" You can read that article HERE.

So over the Christmas break I get an email from Adobe marketing asking to use the article they created as well as images and content to be used at their booth which will be present at the Sundance 2006 Film Festival! Adobe is a presenting Sponsor at Sundance this coming year.

In case you have not heard or know much about "Sundance" it is perhaps one of the largest and highly prestigious film fest events in the world. Industry professionals such as studio execs, distributors from around the world and so forth attend this event looking for new films and products to pick up. For an Independent film maker it is a big shot to getting your dream produced or brought to a large audience. It's a big event and holds a lot of clout in the film world.

So when Adobe asked if they could use our material and content for their booth of course I was "Sure, have at it!" I was thrilled. So we may not be a selected film showing at Sundance (I would never imagine to be) but Panic Struck Productions will be there in some capacity... and that's still a great honor in my mind! If any of you go to the event in January please be sure to check out the Adobe booth, take a picture, send it to me, and let me know how we looked there :)

Panic Struck Productions continues to generate further media and press coverage (which I find remarkable) and this time the Hollywood Reporter found us interesting to mention. Check out the article here titled: "Calling-card shorts", as well as the same article published at The Washington Post.
