A-List Screenwriting

Here is a cool opportunity to spend a couple days with one of the executive producers of Ghosts Don't Exist this Saturday and Sunday. Jim Mercurio is one of the reasons we were so excited to be part of the film. He is an enthusiastic guy and it's obvious he knows and loves movies. He is teaching a screenwriting/story class at the Grand Hyatt in Washington DC on April 25-26 (Saturday/Sunday). And he is giving a free talk on film financing on Friday night in Georgetown.

At one of our investors meetings, he opened with a joke: "An Eagle, a Giant and a Cowboy jump out of a plane; who hits the ground first?" he asked the crowd. No one answered. Then he delivered the punch line: "Who cares?"

And if that's not enough, he's giving away a football autographed by Chris to one of the online registrants.
