A rare look into the journey of Holocaust survival told by 89 year old survivor Simon Lewenberg.
In 2009, Simon Lewenberg committed to writing his memories as one of the last survivors of the Holocaust. Those memories were transformed into Simon Says, a book published by HMSI Publishing, released in 2012.
Simon Lewenberg with his son David Lyons and business partner, Andrew Bishop, owners of Bishop-Lyons Entertainment www.bishoplyons.com, one of the preeminent production entities in Los Angeles,embarked on the concept of translating the manuscript into a supplemental documentary to accompany the launch of the book. Production began in 2012 with a scheduled completion date of winter 2012.
We are fundraising to complete the documentary which our company has already invested approx. $20,000 in. We have edited the many hours of footage down to a reasonable 90 minutes of pertinent story at this stage. The additional funding will be used to pay a story editor, voice over artist, graphics team and an award winning editing staff to finish. We will then enter the documentary in international film festivals; distribute it in Holocaust museums and other historical instituations; and pitch to networks such as the BIO and HISTORY Channels for airing.
With Bishop-Lyons Entertainment's success in TV production and its strong network contacts, we will use this influence to market the SIMON SAYS documentary and book.
The DVD will augment and expound upon many of the stories from the book. It provides the reader with an opportunity to meet Simon Lewenberg and listen as he tells his story. See for yourself the man who survived one of the greatest travesties of all time and be forever changed by what SIMON SAYS.
