NW Network hosts ALLY Screening at EMPMay 20, 2010
This past Thursday, we had the remarkable fortune of screening our most recent cut at EMP’s JBL Theater. ~150 people attended this fundraising event that was hosted by the NW Network as part of National Coalition of Anti-Violence Project’s annual roundtable discussion. In 2003, the NW Network played a pivotal role in taking what could have been an ambitious home video project, and turning it into something Much Bigger. So partnering with the NW Network for this event felt like a fitting bookend for me.
After the screening, Connie Burk (NW Network’s Executive Director & ALLY’s Executive Producer) did a quick, yet compelling, ask for finishing funds. Then we had a Q&A session with the filmmaking team: Tom Kenney (producer/production manager), Eric Frith (editor/co-producer), Pete Droge (composer) and myself. The audience asked brilliant, thoughtful questions…a friendly warm up for what will hopefully be many more Q&As to come!

FYI, our film is on schedule to be completed on July 23rd…only 6 years & 5 months after we boarded that first plane to Tanzania…
