Help Wanted for Spring 2011 !

Hello Everyone

I'm sure you all had a wonderful break! Currently, Taffetas proves to be a very promising project for everyone involved! We have been busy these last few days speaking with possible distributors and seeking out sponsors to get the actual show in production, and are coming into contact with a lot of great networking along the way. Until we can get a solid footing with any distributor or sponsor, however, we are currently in production of an animated short scene for the pitch and are working on refining our pitch in general in order to appeal more to possible sponsors, so we'll need the help of more talented people again this quarter!
