    Hello There! I’ve been reading through your blog, and before I begin to write anything about it (I admire your job with these films, as I said here and there on tumblr , I think I have to let you know that this link:

    doesn’t seem to work! It directs to an unsafe page, like it is not the same safe source as the rest of your other links (sorry, I don’t know if it makes any sense ^^”). Maybe it’s just a problem on my end, but it occurs only with this link! And I am as curious as death to read it!

    Said so, I really appreciate your enthusiasm and passion about all this! I hope it can be a dream come true, next year!

    Keep the faith!
