I am back in Chicago after a summer in Copenhagen and other various Nordic lands. (I actually have been for a bit, started school on AUG22).

A short back story. Towards the end of the school year, Julien De Smedt came to UIC to lecture. I was fortunate enough to be able to interview him for a forthcoming Fresh Meat article. Through the conversation, talk of short films came up. This led on to another conversation and then to something else (i don't remember all the details I'll have to review the recording). Long story short, I was asked to come to Copenhagen to work on a small Project for JDS. — University of Illinois Chicago (Matthew)
