Thank You for a Great Year!

Dec 31, 2010 in Headline, News, Other

As 2010 comes to a close, I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for a fantastic year.

2010 was not only the most financially successful year we’ve ever had (send frivolous lawsuits here), but it’s also the first year that if someone asked us if they’ve heard of any movie we made, the answer was usually “yes.” It was the first year that our colleagues and competitors complimented us on our “business model.” And it was the first year that reviews of our films often included the phrase “wasn’t terrible.”

And something else happened in 2010 that I never thought I would see: In pop culture I get the sense that it’s starting to be cooler to like us than it is to hate us.

None of this would have been possible without you. The fans who like our movies, the distributors and networks who support them, and the noobs who only picked them up for lolz.

Thank you and Happy New Year!

COMMITTED, one of my favorite  fan sites (and certainly the most prolific), has just announced the First Annual Looney Awards for “excellence” in Asylum productions.

Read all about it here.

If you want to vote for your favorite Asylum film, performances, director, screenplay, or fluffer be sure to visit COMMITTED before competition closes on February 2, 2011.

In the interest of full disclosure, I should let you know that I am nominated twice. And I am honored. But, honestly, working at The Asylum is all the reward I need…
