      Ahoy BCC Production folks!

      Do you have children? Would you like them to be inspired by film at an
      early age? This Saturday, come support BCC's own video Pirate at the
      3rd annual SF international Children's Film festival! Both BCC
      produced film, "How to be a land-lovin' Pirate" and "Lady Washington:
      Sails, Song, and the Sea" are showing at 1:00pm sharp at WONDERCON
      Comic Convention at Moscone Center in SF.

      In coordination with the Gray's Harbor Seaport Authority in
      Washington, the festival will be attended by non other than the ship,
      ITSELF! Making its berth at Pier 40, only a few blocks away (we
      couldn't fit the ship in the auditorium ;) the Lady Washington will be
      available for dockside tours and adventure/battle sails all weekend
      long! The Lady appeared in such films as all of the "Pirates of the
      Caribbean" Films and "Star Trek: Generations."

      Here's the Skinny, and maybe we'll see you down Thaaarrrrr!
