I was at Burke's on Friday night and saw the trailer for your doc. It looks great. My name is Jesse W. Morrison. I am the creator and owner of Memflix, a new entertainment magazine focusing on everything entertainmen as it pertains to film, as well as movie reviews and other articles. I want to do a monthly segment covering current local films in production and have little blurbs telling memphians the staus of these productions. I have heard from various people that you are in the 'know' in that area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't have a website but I have a myspace page. You can reach me through email as
