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.
