Backers... we meet again.
I've been out of the field a couple weeks working on the business/legal aspects of the filmmaking process, but had to attend and film an exhibition basketball game pitting high school all-stars from the West Side of Chicago versus their counterparts on the South Side. A few notables were in attendance, including the mayor, an NFL player or two, and director John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood, Higher Learning). I need to work on my elevator pitch so that next time I run into a famous person and want to pitch my project I don't just say, "Hey what's up John Singleton!"

Enjoy, and be in touch. I love all of you.
