Tom Quinn, who I got to know during my stint as a visiting professor at Temple, has an interesting write-up of his experiences at the IFP Rough Cut lab over at Workbook Project. The clips I've seen of Tom's work-in-progress The New Year Parade have all been very promising. Like a lot of truly independent works, it's had a long birthing process, which has just amped up my anticipation of it. Happily, it sounds like the Lab may be that last little push Tom needed to complete the film and get it out to audiences.
In the meantime, read Tom's take on the Lab here.
