Ships, Wells, And Volcanoes

I haven't posted on here. About anything. In like, forever.

But if there are people out there who still gaze down this empty well in hopes of one day drawing water, there recently has been very little to draw. Video projects have come and gone over the years, and the excitement of Deliver-e has died down.

But to push the pictorial allegories, this is not an extinct volcano. It may be erupting a few reviews, filmmaking analyses, and small video projects occasionally, but will remaining rather dormant for the next few weeks/days/mmoooooonnnthsss....

But one day I will return to the helm once again and steer this ship off to new and fantastic places. Stay alert, for you never know when Snowtop's next big film will be brought into the spotlight.

In the meantime, there are a few awesome places that you can divert more of your attention to.
The first is THIS FABULOUS NEW MOVIE MADE BY FABULOUS PEOPLE. I've already posted about that like three times now, but it is pretty much going to be the coolest movie in the world. So keep on supporting them in your prayers as they enter into the valley of the shadow of death: P O S T  P R O D U C T I O N. (Okay, maybe it's just me, but I just absolutely hate this part, because I have to edit the movie. Which is super painful).

I have also dug a new well over here, and let me tell you, all sorts of exciting stuff are happening in Almondon. If you are new to my comics, start at the first post and work upwards, because that way the new ones make more sense.

Farewell, for now.
Further up and further in!

About this time of the year, about this time of the day, about this place in my room, about two years ago, I was hunched in front of the computer with steam coming through my ears and birds flying about my head--with my eyes appearing to move completely independent of each other. I was slowly pining away, hoping and praying the DVD would start compiling.

Not to dramatize, but when I called Jared to report that it was finally working, I never screamed so loud in my life. And he'll testify that.

It's the second anniversary of Sons of Risen!

"What filmmakers do on rainy days" wins Film Festival

Timothy's church held a film festival a few months ago and Timothy took the liberty to enter "What filmmakers do on rainy days". The film won "Best of Festival" and "Best Special effects" including the highly esteemed prize: A package of Skittles and a Jamba juice gift card! I would post a picture, but we ate the skittles already.

Don't you love it when you accidentally win?

Happy Veterans Day!

This short film was made by myself and my loyal comrade Tyler. 'Twas for our co-op to celebrate Veteran's Day, and we had a jolly time interviewing people in our co-op and making fancy green-screen effects. We hope you enjoy our endeavors!

Behind-the-scenes for "Asia Bibi: A call for Mercy"

A few weeks ago we participated in a video contest petitioning to free a woman in Pakistan named Asia  Bibi.  The entry won second place in the Call for Mercy video contest. You can watch the original video here.

This video project was a blast. We threw it together within 48 hours and had loads of fun frantically telling everyone who would listen to watch the video so that we could reach 200 views and be eligible for submission. Thank you everyone who watched the video and supported us! It wouldn't have been possible without you guys!

Anywhat. As a token of our gratitude (ok, and partially for the heck of it) I decided to make a behind-the-scenes peek into the making of this short little video. Enjoy!

DELIVER-E off ebay was on ebay?

That's why it's off.

If you wish to purchase a copy, Deliver-e will be available in a single and double disc edition by e-mailing us at

It's not that hard. Really. You just go "Hi, my name is so-and-so, I would like a copy of Deliver-e blahblablah..." Yeah, and we'll work from there.

In the meantime, you can go and follow the production blog for First Impressions. Because they're awesome and stuff. Yep.

In the meanertime, Jared and I are working on a new short film you can be on the lookout for sometime in the near future.

And if you're still reading, I might as well tell you an idea for our next feature film has been conceived, but still in the brain stage, which you can be on the lookout for in the quite-very-distant-future. Yes, it's happening. But Deliver-e is still off ebay. So just e-mail us and stuff...sometime...because that would be nice...

Thank you for your sweet time.
