    We met some great people, and had one hell of a party. It was great having everything in the one hotel, so it was easy to check out everything, and talk to other filmmakers and guests. Everyone who put it on were great, and responded really quickly to any questions we had.
    Definitely a festival that we will be attending and submitting to again.

    I wish I could have been in attendance.

    Due to all the shocking talent (pardon the horrific pun), I'm sure it was a wonderful event.

    We were thrilled to be selected to screen at Shock Stock. Everyone was so nice to us. It was great to meet Jake at the festival, and we enjoyed seeing so many of our friends there. The films in the Friday night Short Shock block were fantastic. A very memorable experience. Unfortunately we couldn't stay for the whole weekend. Thanks for having us!

    You can feel the fan love the instant you walk through the doors. Thank you Jake and James for the hospitality you showed Mark Torgl and I. And thank you al of the fans that gave SHOCK STOCK the family feel it had! Looking forward to next year!
