The Other Katie said...

YAYYY!! *jumping up and down* Wow! Blanche and Rose are perfect! *jumps and down some more*
Only the clips from Mr. Freet's basement looked kind of different from the rest of it...idk, slightly soap opera-ish. Probably just because of the sound.
I can't wait until this movie comes out!!!

Congrats, Elena!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *hugs tightly* We are all so proud of you and SO thankful that YOU, our beloved administrator, undertook this job of bringing Regina's book to life onscreen!

I love it and I can't wait to see the whole film!

PLEASE tell me you are going again to FT Get-Togther again this year, and that you're bringing your cast! I WANT TO MEET FISH AND ROSE!!!!! *chuckles* Heehee...Anthony sounds like he's a blast to be around and Rose looks perfect! *needs to meet them*

Not to make your head hurt or anything but once this is all over...have you thought/gotten any feedback from Regina about filming Black as Night and Waking Rose in the future????

Much love,
your silly niece Grace
P.S. Please give the cast all my love and tell them thanks for doing this! We love them AND YOU!! :D :D

Awesome! Amazing! Perfect! Fish and Rose are great! Cool!
Words can't describe the great job you've done so far with the movie and with this trailer. IT'S SOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOL!!!!!!
I really doubt that there are enough words in the English dictionary to give this enough credit.
And, once again, Fish and Rose are AWESOME! Blache and Bear too.
