Hello Kickstarter Supporters!
I want to update you on the status of my documentary and thank you for your patience, support and positive messages. I haven’t forgotten you! A lot has happened in the last year with me taking part in NFL's Seattle Seahawks mini-camp, NFL tryouts, playing my first professional football games for the Las Vegas Locomotives in the United Football League in the Fall of 2012, followed by joining the Atlanta Falcons for training camp this past spring and summer. My dreams once stripped away from me of playing in the NFL were restored! I played in 4 games! My entire focus was on performing my best while with the Atlanta Falcons. Retracing my dreams and giving each one of those my best shot is something I owe to myself, and all of you for your generous kindness and support. I've been active in bringing awareness to wrongful convictions in hopes of change. Meeting with politicians and lawmakers in Washington DC and Sacramento, CA discussing law reform. Sharing my story and delivering motivational speeches at schools, organizations, and events. I've also assisted notably in the release of two other wrongfully convicted men.
As my story continues to unfold, so has the documentary. What started as a small film has now grown to a much bigger project and I’m thrilled that you will be a part of it! We are honored to announce that we have partnered with documentary producer, Michele Farinola and are currently developing the team that will bring the documentary to life. In addition to her extensive experience, Michele has demonstrated a personal commitment assuring my story is told well: in truth, with compassion, and the inspiration inherent and revealed in any human struggle. She was an Executive Producer of the 2011 Oscar winning documentary, Undefeated. That same year Michele also produced the Grammy winning Foo Fighters: Back and Forth and was the Executive in Charge of Production for the acclaimed, “George Harrison: Living in the Material World,” Directed by Martin Scorsese. She comes to our project with over 20 years of experience in the film and television industry.
We will continue to update you, as we’ll be progressing quickly from this point forward. Thank you again for your patience and understanding. I’d like to ask you to visit my Facebook page www.Facebook.com/TheBrianBanksStory and twitter @BrianBanksFREE as we move forward. I look forward to keeping you all updated there, with photos and video snippets of the film's making, and it's process towards completion! Keeping you as close-up and personal as I am.
Looking forward to sharing this journey with you!
