Several folks emailed me about this LA Times article featuring the short, Sheep Man. Like my Panda Man, it's a parody of Grizzly Man... however, Times Staff Writer Hugo Martin reports, "The Internet has already premiered several "Grizzly Man" spoofs, including parodies called "Hedgehog Man," "Gosling Man" and "Grizzly Bear Man"..."Sheep Man," however, is the first spoof to make the jump to the theaters."
Um, what? Dude, I don't think so. Panda Man premiered at a theater on May 10, 2006. And I came up with this concept 2 years ago! But due to my day job that pays the billz, I have not been able to promote my film at festivals and other outlets like YouTube. But if I put it on YouTube now, would I be perceived as a follower? As someone on a bandwagon? Man. I do not want to go out like that. FUCK!
Serious quandry. I hate it.
