From Independent-TV Festival in Los Angeles, to A&E in New York, to TBS right here in Atlanta, we were so close to our dream. The corporate lawyers killed it ~ They said the escrow account would have to be at a million or so due to ASCAP fees, etc.
While the guys were building stairs for the stage at Tree Sound Studios the day of the event, the ladies stuffed gift bags for the band and crew; we all came together.
We begged and borrowed our way to the production with a jib camera from here, and an audio board from there; we made it happen. Some you see in the audience were likely setting up food, or helping with lights, or carrying gear, we rocked it! With no budget, just passion.
What I find so powerful, is that the camaraderie, gumption and talent we had a dozen years ago STILL HOLDS TRUE TODAY. We are all still dear friends. We continue to lead our lives with that special drive, that curiosity of life. We just now do it with a few kids in tow, a mortgage or two, and a few ache n' pains. We still all believe ~ work hard, play hard, love what you do, respect each other.
