    LET'S TALK! I’ve advised folks from the US Dept of Education to 1st-time filmmakers on everything from development thru festival strategy. Need a film crew in another town or advice on a film fest run? Not a filmmaker? We can talk about anything you'd like. Ask what it's like to grow up Mormon or live in China. Need dating advice or to talk about your feelins? How about facts on Lake Michigan shipwrecks or Yukon/Gold Rush ladies of the night? Or, share your thoughts & opinions on Mormon Movie. Tell it like it is, shape our point of view. I'm yours via phone for half an hour. (Expires 12/31/13) ALSO, on-screen Director’s Cut THANK YOU credit, t-shirt, MM digital download & postcards.
