Today I was blown away by how life comes full circle. 2010 although challenging, has been my biggest teacher. I close this year with peace
Sent of the ponzi scheme to new sales agent today. International television inquiries are coming in. Screening copies requested.
returned from #IDFA where i got a deal for ponzi only to find a big fat cheque in the mail from the FBI. Got 40% back from the scheme. woot!
First night not going out at #Idfa. With very hospitable guests and reflecting over the week.
closing big international deal for The Ponzi Scheme tonight. the journey just got way more interesting with way more support. #IDFA
#IDFA is like the united nations. filmmakers who really care about things come together from all over the world and share what they learned
First day of #Idfa and just got a soft offer for distribution. They really liked the film. Pretty exciting stuff. There is a ponzi buzz here
