Over the last five years, I've said all there is to say about how rewarding it is to organize the 24-Hour Film Royal and how inspiring the Anchorage filmmaking community is. The only thing left for me to say – for anyone who even remotely cares – is that this will be my last year running the show. Although my final event will be the 5-Day Film Royal this December, I consider the 24 my baby. My own filmmaking journey began at someone else's 24-hour competition back in 2007, and arguably the whole local film scene grew from that. So it was a no-brainer to revive the event that gave me and this community so much. Melodramatic rambling aside, the 24 will carry on in the hands of its co-founders. Hopefully I'll get back to actually making movies again. I've also got a new event in its planning stages that should make anyone who misses the old days of Open Projector Night happy. Anyway, it's been a pleasure. Now go make movies!
