[ Director's Message ]

It's every filmmakers lifelong dream to be nominated and perhaps win an Oscar. But it has been our lifelong dream to be nominated and win for Best Straight to DVD Title by the monthly magazine "DVD and Blu-ray Data. " That definitely makes our Moms proud. Fellini, Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron? none of them have had the honor of being screened at the Down Town Taito International Comedy Film Festival. But we have. So suck it all you fancy rich directors. We had a blast making "Superfast!" And we hope you have a blast watching it. Thank you!
