Hollywood, Here We Come!

On May 20th, 2015 (my birthday!), principal filming began on the Little Indie Film That Could, Eyes of the Roshi. Starring Eric Roberts, Grandmaster Adam Nguyen and Ethan Marten (also the film’s producer and President/CEO of Light Age Films), we began filming in Virginia Beach, VA and Knotts Island, NC, (the photo above was taken at Pearl’s Bay Villa on Knotts Island) with a mah-velous cast and a faab-ulous crew. There were many long days (and nights!) of filming, but as the film’s associate producer, I was witness to many moments of pure magic- acting performances that caused us all to stand in jaw-dropped wonder, technical ability that produced scenes of beauty and destruction, and an amazing level of dedication from those involved in the production.

In the two years since then, the Little Indie Film That Could has garnered awards, praise, a screening at the SOHO International Film Fest and, coming up, a screening at the Burbank International Film Festival. Hollywood!

A GoFundMe campaign is currently underway to raise funds for our team to get to Hollywood by September 6th, 2017. Going to these events allows us to get the film recognized, hopefully seen by potential distributors, and even more hopefully, to be picked up by a distributor. You can help by donating here, liking and sharing the campaign, our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Eyes of the Roshi, the Little Indie Film That Could, continues to pick up steam and speed as it chugs into the future. What lies over the horizon? Stay tuned.1908297_464891866979182_761793369206070619_n
