The Mexican Gray Wolf recently had an amazing victory! U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services decided to proceed with the release of 10 Mexican Gray Wolves into the wild despite strong opposition from New Mexico Game and Fish Department. To support of this endangered animal, visit Wild Earth Guardians.

Great news! Both Lobster and Baby Monitor found global distribution through the Spiritual Cinema Circle, a subsidiary of Vivendi. The aim of the Spiritual Cinema Circle is to get short films and features that have a motivational, spiritual, and uplifting message to a greater audience.  I am grateful to Anna Darrah, Suzanna Otting, and Stephen Simon, whose vision created a home for both of my shorts.
