P&D reviews, interviews, fanart and...oh my!

First off, a big thanks to the crew of Animated Views. They put up a review of our film Paul & The Dragon, plus they interviewed us on the making of the film.
Click *here* for the interview and *here* for the excellent review.

Then, here are two more (Dutch) reviews in two magazines, BSM magazine and Nederlands dagblad:

Last month, in connection with the International Childhood Cancer Day, the kids of primary school Johan Friso held a fundraiser for the The Dutch Childhood Cancer Parent Organisation (VOKK). Those crazy kids raised 1170,93 euros! And in class they also made these wonderful Paul & the Dragon drawings and paintings. Sweet! Check out all the other art pieces by clicking --->HERE.

Happy Easter!

So what Easter was two days ago. I was busy searching eggs.
