THE WORK AND THE STORY RETURNS TO THEATERS - This past weekend, "The Work and the Story" hit three dollar theaters in Utah. Although it seemed to some that its theatrical run was long done, Nathan Smith Jones' film has been resurrected, at least for a short time, grossing a modest $512 over the weekend. This brings the film's total box office gross to $16,137. The DVD will go on sale beginning June 22nd. Chances are you haven't seen it. Go see it or buy the DVD. You WILL laugh.

WHERE DID MY MAILINGS GO? - It has NOT been a slow week. If it had been a slow week, we might have been able to pass on more information to you. Some of you (especially those on the regular mailing list) may have been wondering what happened to all the mailings. Well, believe it or not, occasionally we have other things to do besides dig into the goings-on in LDS film. (I know - hard to believe, huh?) This was one of those weeks. Don't worry. You'll get your daily helping of LDS film soon enough. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience when, every once in a while, life interferes with our fun.
