    As-salamou-Al-eikoum, my brothers and sisters,
    I have also checked out all the film project listed here.. I wish all the projects success since trying to get a film made is long , tough journey. But I must say, at the end of the week, you put the news on: it is depressing , anti-muslim and stressful. As a sister from the Nation of Islam, it is hard so hard .. I want to watch something uplifting , with a good story that is not going to make me depressed. I would want to watch In Amandas Shoes. Good luck to all.

    That girl in the blue is hot! She looks Italian... she has a certain ducatiness to her.

    I think that we should be very supportive and acknowledge all these up and coming film makers even if they have made a mistake in posting something negative out of emotion. At the end of the day, it is the film itself that will defy it's successes. There are so many variables to make or break a film these days. Every single person who votes for their freinds film will also look at all the other competitors film article and will evoke future interest to see their end result. I for one will be looking forward to “The People Demand”, “The Animals”, “The Idiot” and “In Amanda’s Shoes”. Internet traffic is so valuable. I wish all of you great success in your films and your careers.

    I am one of the filmmakers on "The People Demand" and I can assure you that that comment wasn't from us. I wish all the best to every filmmaker on all of these projects! - J. Lyons, Denver, CO.

    That is sad that someone had to post something so negative - el persona numero dos.
    Well- I am a girl from mexico and would love to see a film like this made.
    In my country, girls have a hard time obtaining professional success in their field . Tambien, es dificial por mujeres to receive help and assistance from family. Sorry for the bad spanenglish.

    Got excited in this discussion....LOL

    On behalf of Peachtree and 5th, I want to thank everyone in the US and Canada who has shown support for "In Amanda's Shoes" by voting for our project! Please note that comment No. 3 and this one are the only ones authorized on behalf of Peachtree and 5th and the only ones we'll be posting here. We are very proud of our film, and in fact the previous hater's negativity directed towards a female-driven film (while using our name!) are a perfect example of why our film needs to be seen. We wish them well in their projects, and we hope our film changes their opinion. We all have a common goal of wanting to support independent filmmaking.

    Sorry-- i am just so shocked with # 2 comment. I agree with Sasha.

    Here is my response.

    OMG.. What a horrible thing to say. I find the film “The Promotion” a fantastic film endeavor. Obviously, who ever had the gaul to make a nasty comment and steal someones name is probably green with envy.
    There is a thing called Karma. Love more friend , love more and evolve.

    I did not write that last comment... prob someone from the other 3 films. We don't appreciate the sarcasm about our project. That is unprofessional and rude towards all film makers. Work on your promotion and networking in the USA and CANADA. No personal Attacks please. Who ever used my name please grow up.

    Looks like somebody's gaming the system... because there is no way something as trite and banal as "a young professional woman trying to find success in a male-dominated industry" has over 80% of the vote.

    *something is technically wrong* :(
