Thanks to Judy Hilbert and Edward’s cousins in New Jersey, I was led to the American Hungarian Foundation in New Brunswick, New Jersey and its president, Professor August Molnar.
While walking past the Capitol Building in DC en route to the Library of Congress to continue research for my Civil War romance (the new project which kindly sustains my existence thanks to the belief and gracious blessings of the movie’s chief financier, Northern Virginia Community College), I spoke on the phone with Pofessor Molnar about a New Jersey screening. Turns out he knew Edward’s uncle George Lang (who is featured in Freedom Dance as a very important figure, the fellow who helps Edward and Judy obtain permissin to enter the US). Exciting discovery! I will send a screener and hope they will agree host a screening soon! (Insert big smile.)
Also still in the works are negotiations with Paula Diaz in Miami for a screening possibly at the Globo Theater (same place we premiered Jim Camacho’s Houdini music video!) She is interested in hosting a Freedom Dance preview screening and Q&A … possibly December 5 … working out the details now … keep checking back for details!
Continued work on Colors (my second music video for Jim) and receiving for it some incredible animation from the video’s brilliant animator Miguel de Angel. (check out his work. It’s astonishing!)
Long phone meeting scheduled with Jim for tomorrow … he will watch an uploaded rough cut on his computer in Miami as I watch in Baltimore, going through it shot by shot.
