Veteran's Day

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Atomic Swan Films

Wanna know where 'Atomic Swan' came from? From the Wu-Tang Clan, of course: "I bomb atomically, Socrates' philosophies and hypothesis can't define how I be droppin these mockeries, lyrically perform armed robbery..."

Graceful as a swan; yet frenetic, energetic and undeniable as an atomic bomb.

Welcoming Terry Wayne Lawrence to Among Thieves

I would like to welcome Terry Wayne Lawrence on board the Project Swan Movie. Terry has earned himself the role of Jessie, the farmer, in the short film Among Thieves. I would also like to thank Terry for his incredible help in securing locations for the film. He has been of tremendous help and is a nice guy, to boot.
