My reflections...

After rolling it out, checking all stations, and wiping the bead of sweat from my brow, the momentum we've built began to sound in the form of movie stars and paparazzi. What a joy it was to witness the the fruits of our labor blossom into what has become the best Sunscreen Film Festival to date.

The people I had a chance to meet this year have made for one memorable time; people like Victoria and Christopher Kelley (Hampshire: a ghost story), Mariah or "Skit" as I now call her, and Kat the WWE wrestler... and last but not least my new friend, Alan Mehanna, the recipient of this year's Travolta Family Inspiration Award.

The days came and ended, quickly. Each of us shared a tired eye and a tip of the glass and know we now share a brotherhood and sisterhood rarely shared by others.

And so now we begin again. If you thought 2009 was hot, I wouldn't put down the Sunscreen so fast... you're gonna need it in 2010!
