Sorry that I wasn't able to make it to the show, but Isn't there Someone Else Who Can Write in this town and wouldn't mind posting a few lines about the event?

From an anon. layperson:

200-300 people showed up to an very well done and fun event. Food, drinks, socializing and some surprizingly good films from Phillip Brooks. He showed one of his earlier works "Stovepipe" and action flick, which was Ok. "Deliberate" however was very good. No dialogue, but a very profound film about war and death. Very good photography by Jeremy Hernandez and music that followed the action very well. Overall, a very nice event and some admirable work by Mr. Brooks.

Terrific brief review! Thanks, anon layperson. Hope you will post again.

Pam Atchison told me the event was unusually well done - that the auditorium felt warm and well-decorated. She commented on the healthy mix of young audience along with a middle-aged group.

Congrats to Phillip and his team!
