My apologies for using the generic NYC photo (thanks Google), but my posts generate a lot less interest without pictures... :)
I haven't been back to the East Coast since last summer, but am planning to return to do more interviews sometime between August and late September/early October. I've yet to work out the details, but as I try to make the most of each trip, I thought I'd do well to post about it in advance.
Right now, I have at least 3 people to meet up with in NYC. I'm also looking to do more filming in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and possibly even Connecticut and Massachusetts.
I've lost touch with some of you, and I'm sorry. I sincerely hope to reconnect and schedule as many interviews as possible. Please reach out to me, and hopefully our stars might align!
Since this project's inception, I've struggled with deciding what would be the most appropriate business structure for the documentary. My aim has always been to help preserve Richard Amsel's creative legacy, rather than own or exploit it.
I've had a few rough patches getting this project off the ground. Such things are common with almost any creative endeavor. I've learned that the best way to get through them is to focus on the positive, shed whatever toxicity and hubris possible, learn the value of forgiveness, and, above all else, to keep moving forward.
This project has granted me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people -- talented, charming, warm personalities -- and their friendship easily bests all the other negative experience...
