While the visible activities relating to communications seem a long way away (we're hoping to release Abandoned Allies this summer), it's never too early to get people on board to plan. This gives everyone time to let the ideas marinate, adjust and grow--and helps us all get a better understanding without having to rush under pressure.
It is such an honor to work with so many talented people. It is humbling to give them a challenge, some parameters within they can work, and then give them the responsibility to take the reigns and do their thing. Because I'm working with my friends, they challenge me just as much as I challenge them.
There are moments where I pause and think about how lucky I am to be surrounded by such talented people, each willing to offer their time to help make the project successful. It even brings a tear to my eye on occasion.
Folks, when this thing is finally finished I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed the process of working on it. This film has introduced me to some of the world's finest folks, and I cannot wait to thank them all publicly for their hard work. For now, a little tip of the hat to each must suffice as there is much work left to be done.
