Nice work Dena, Brown Water was one of my top picks.  Very atmospheric - I've been a sucker for anything set in a swamp since Southern Comfort.  Was that a different intro on the audio version?  Touche and Eisotrophobia were also right up there for me.

Thanks Don and Khamanna for putting it all together.

Quoted from stevemiles

Yes. Don said I could give it a rewrite. I read thru the notes here and then paid Carson $75 to read it... and then rewrote it. Two people on SS and Carson felt like the death at the beginning didn't really go with the rest of the story ... I was just setting the tone sort of ... but I chose to chop that whole scene off due to the notes. I never know with a rewrite if I am fucking the script up or making it better. Rewriting has always been like that for me. Most times... people prefer(even producers) the scripts I crap out versus the ones I pour time into. Weird. But true for me thusfar. Thank you for even noticing that.
