JUMP! wins Audience Award

We are soo happy to have won the Santa Fe Film Festival Audience Choice Award! This is our first award -- we're grateful and proud...this validation means a lot to us and we hope it will help us to share the film with more people. Tremendous thanks to the film-goers for giving us this honor and to the programmers for including us in the line-up!

Both of our screenings sold-out and two new American Heart Association jump rope clubs from Albuquerque did pre-show performances -- the Red Hot Peppers from Manzano Day School and New Mexico Synergy, which includes jumpers from 5 area schools. Soon, Nick, one of the stars of JUMP! from the Texas team Razz Ma Tazz, will be making a trek to NM to help these jumpers improve their skills and no doubt sign some autographs...he's got some serious fans. Neither team has been to a major competition before but now they are all fired up!

Most likely, we'll do a limited theatrical run in Sta Fe sometime in early 2008. If anyone is interested, please sign up for our mailing list here to receive updates.

Factoid: Santa Fe is the oldest capital city in the USA.
