Pawdance Film Festival

In case any of you have missed out on the news, an amazing film festival is being sponsored by the superb Norwood.  We are particularly proud because one of our videos has been nominated in the comedy category.  The nomination process was amazingly rigorous.  It consisted of great scrutiny by a panel of distinguished experts from all over the world.

Ok, we lied.  It consisted of the effort of submitting the video link to Norwood.  But, hey, that took effort.  And we are exhausted from it.

The Pawdance Film Festival is now running.  If you follow that link and then click “comedy“, you will discover Rusty’s amazing battle with the balloons.  After viewing all of the entries, you should go and vote here.  Polls close on May 13th (midnight PST) and then the voting begins for the prestigious Flick of the Year.  The entries are fantastic, so please go view them all and vote for your favorite (Rusty says even if it is not him – he is cool with that).  Here is our entry:

    Good luck with your entry – you know it really is a very good one. And it adds new meaning to the term “Balloon Boy”:)

    You’ve even got special effects! I loved it in slo-mo.

    I saw that video last night and I was going to ask this morning why it hadn’t been here on the blog! I laughed so hard when I watched that! Actually, I had to watch it about three or four times. Plus, Bunny had to see it. I thought Rusty was funny in pictures, but then I saw him video. Please tell me he’s stopping in Illinois when he goes on his world tour!

  20. Mr Koda MD on May 12, 2010 at 5:13 am

    A good contender for the top honours!!!

  21. Ruby's Raiser on May 12, 2010 at 1:45 am

    Those balloons DID put up a good fight – it’s like sparring with Muhammad Ali! That’s some fancy pawwork Rusty’s got going on there. 🙂
