Thank you very much. Well, I think I should tell you something and it is that we have back in Canada an extraordinary institution, and it's called the National Film Board of Canada. And through the National Film Board it's been possible for many Canadian filmmakers, Americans, and people from all over the world to express themselves and put their feelings on film, express themselves culturally, pioneer in all kinds of animation and film techniques. And I think I should be grateful for them all because it was through them and the National Film Board and all my helpers that I've been able to make this little film. And I hope you can all see it. Thank you.
