    I saw your film on the evening of the 20th and it was spectacular!

  2. […] P.S. I found the blog of Nick Fox-Gieg who also screened his amazing film,” The Foxhole Manifesto,” last Friday. […]

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks so much. I did make the piece in Flash.
    I don’t think we have met before. Maybe, we met at Calarts, but we were there at different times.
    I love your piece! I like the Philip Guston/KKK characters. How much of your piece was done in Flash? It didn’t look like it was Flash, but instead, it looked like cool cut-outs. How did you get it to look that way?
    I’m excited to have found your blog! Your prolific output of beautiful films amazes me. I look forward to seeing your new work.
    What are you up to at the Hague?

    Love your film!

    I’m going to send the link to all the people in Montreal. I think it’s the best “holiday” present there is. (For you: a little art.)

    romans could not save Jesus. they could not afford a riot. God is every thing you said and, at the same time, He is nothing of it, because God is God and He is not what we imagine of what He is. you will find God when He decide to reviled Himself to you.

    Hilarious and slightly disturbing. I like it!

    Also, lol @ ruben for not getting the reference to atheism in the title of the movie.
