The Wrong Rock has passed 2 Million views on YouTube. Regular fans of this and our Devils, Angels & Dating fan page know that we like to share our statistics from time to time as a thank you to all the people that helped out. Here you can see that we had very little views for a year and then things took off. Note that the revenue shown here is before our network partner and the tax man takes their cut. So the earnings are still working their way towards paying for the festival run, and no-where close to covering out of pocket costs or labor. But it's still a lot more than we might have expected. Thank you to everyone that has posted such nice comments. J.P. Cawood Grant Kirkhope The Mrs Artella Redshift Render community Redshift

The Wrong Rock

We've been wondering how our film, The Wrong Rock, would be received if instead of travelling from right to left... the story traveled from left to right. A subtle shift, but one that might mean something different to different people. So we've prepared a special version of the film for Vimeo. It's also been trimmed for a shorter run time. Feel free to check it out and share. https://vimeo.com/395646438

Martin the mushroom was born on the wrong rock. Martin overcomes enormous challenges to travel to a far away rock where he hopes to be accepted. This is a story…
