Two filmmakers chasing the dream of producing their first feature film...
...and financing it solely through winning video contests.

Seasons pass, friends come and go, and it's a sad fact of life that all your mentors must die.

And so we mourn the passing of RootClip.com, the site that hosted the first contest we ever won. The administrator of the collaborative movie-making site recently posted this blog entry:

"Hello. For the 3 or 4 people that are still interested in the future of Rootclip.com, this one's for you. ... So, all of this is to say that Rootclip, in this current form, is going to be on a hiatus for awhile. I need to find some venture capital or an angel investor or something (which I am looking into) for this edition of the site to stay active and stay running 'as is'. ... This is probably goodbye, but I'm not slamming the door just yet."

Which is to say, that Rootclip, though not quite dead yet, is pretty dead.

R.I.P. RootClip.com. Much love and respect.
