A Lot Like You

A Film by Eliaichi Kimaro

ALLY reaches Ira Glass

20140504 with Ira Glass
This day has been a looong time coming…

Feeling profoundly grateful I finally had the opportunity to share A Lot Like You (DVD & soundtrack) with Ira Glass.

Amidst a crowd, I managed to tell Ira what a pivotal role he played in the making of our film.  

In 2009, our film hit that critical turn where editor Eric Frith and I realized that I needed to assume the role of storyteller.  But I didn’t know how to do it.  So I turned to This American Life, and devoured every YouTube video of Ira talking about story structure (especially his 4-part series on Storytelling).

So yesterday, when I told Ira I owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude, and that our film is what it is because of all that he’s shared, I meant every word.
