  • Feb 18, 2011 Beast of Bottomless Lake is going to be seen at it’s first international audience in April. At Olamot Con in Tel Aviv. It is a science fiction convention in Israel. And here’s the kinda wild part…they are making Hebrew sub-titles, which we get to reuse at our leisure. So as unusual as that is, we get to include a Hebrew track on our DVD, all in the service of more people getting to understand our funky tale of ambition gone awry. Unfortunately, it doesn’t help me understand more than the limited English text on their webiste, but hey—they want our film!
