Could you give us some background on this film's production?
"I've spent the last several weeks discussing with Israel (who resides in L.A.), testing at the theater and tweaking the film for the large screen format. It's been challenging combining efforts remotely and even more challenging dealing with technical issues, as the film was originally shot and edited for web, broadcast and smaller screens. With that said, it looks really good in the larger format."
I know this will not be the last article on "Despondent," but do you have a final note to share?
"Above all, Israel and I want to thank everyone so much for their generous contributions in order to see our film premiered at the Uptown Theater in DC."
