New Hampshire-made short BIGHORN now online!

[From New Hampshire filmmaker Alfred Thomas Catalfo:]
Hi Everyone,

We're very happy to announce that BIGHORN is now online.  The film can be viewed on our website, www.BighornMovie.com.

BIGHORN is presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition. Click on "HD" in the playbar to switch between the two formats.  In HD mode, it's advisable to let the film fully load before playing.  BIGHORN is also enabled for mobile devices.

We would very much appreciate your help in getting the word out that BIGHORN is on the Web.  Please feel free to forward and post.  We're truly grateful for your friendship, your support and for joining us on this new adventure.

BIGHORN is a 15-minute, supernatural historical fantasy based on a true fact:  that General Custer's bandmaster, Felix Vinatieri -- an Italian immigrant and the great-great-grandfather of Super Bowl-winning kicker Adam Vinatieri -- was ordered to stay behind at the 7th Cavalry's Powder River camp and missed the Battle of the Little Bighorn.  The story takes place in 2002 and 1876.  BIGHORN is the latest from award-winning filmmakers Alfred Thomas Catalfo (writer/director of the internet hit “The Norman Rockwell Code” and winner of 21 major screenwriting competitions) and Glenn Gardner (producer of Cannes Film Festival Palm d’Or winner “Sniffer”).  The renowned Steve Alexander, recognized by the U.S. Congress as the world’s foremost Custer living historian, portrays Custer.  Native American and adopted Lakota Bill Watkinson portrays the Lakota Medicine Man.  The NFL graciously granted the filmmakers permission to use footage from the 2002 Super Bowl.
