It's 6am in the Lower East Side, the sun is rising over East River and I'm waiting for a render to finish. Eddie and I haven't pulled an all-nighter in a while, but when when we got approval late in the day yesterday on a spot we're directing for Nick at Nite, we knew we were in for a late one... of course a raid drive failure didn't help our cause.

Sitting circumspect as the streets just begin to bustle with traffic, it occurs to me that an awful lot has happened in just a few short years in NYC. Chop Wood Carry Water has grown from a tiny corner of a DUMBO office share into a lovely corner office overlooking much of Manhattan. And as the economy tanks, boot-strap tightening aside, we're still making movies. Having just returned from 10 crazy days in Park City, Utah where our film Ten For Grandpa played to sold out audiences at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, we're back in the swing, writing and re-writing our four feature screenplays, getting them polished up and starting to work on packaging them with cast.

I've got a few more gray hairs than when I stepped off the plane from Tokyo after many months traveling around the world and landing in NYC, but I've finally kicked my Ethiopian (Tanzanian? Indian?) stomach bug, and I'm feeling pretty excited about what the next couple of years are going to look like.
