I am in Chicago, on the last leg of a 10 day road trip. Being on the road is always bitter sweet for me because on the one hand I get so much done, but on the other hand, I am away from my family. That part is hard and the sacrifice is substantial. But, in the end, I think it will all be worth it.
My post today is about community. It takes a village, as they say. Our little film project, Back To Basics, is really getting some attention.
The story line is resonating with alot of people, everywhere. Yesterday, I had a wonderful meeting at the NRA offices in Chicago with a fantastic group of people. They are so excited about our project and as you might know by now, we have earmarked all of the net proceeds of the film to Prostart.
Well, I can’t say much about it yet, as the details are just unraveling. What I can tell you, is that in total, we now have more than 30 people working on this project as a community effort and our prospectus is being prepared for support from the Food Network! We have also agreed on our official release date of the film which will be coordinated with NRA 2014. The Food Network will bring Hollywood Celebrity Power to the film, which will help to support the thesis of the project and further support the stories that will be told by our fantastic cast of leaders;
After all, with Star power like Ed Rensi, Jon Luther Sr., Ron Shaich, Don Fox, Jim Vinz, Paul Mangiamele, Al Bhakta, Roz Mallet, Kat Cole, Carin Stutz, Dawn Sweeney, Peter Romeo, Darren Tristano and Bill Cunningham, it’s tough to go wrong!
Over the next year, the film will be used to help raise awareness around the work that is being done around Prostart.
Watch for some amazing developments in the next few weeks as we make more details public. We’ve got alot of surprises in store and based on how fast things are moving, and the amount of community support we are getting, this film is going to go mainstream on the Food Network as well as Theatres everywhere.
It just gets better and better. Please visit the website for the film and stay up to date. www.backtobasicsthefilm.com
