here to read the story of finishing this
film and see some post production photos and read of the total
pressure we were under to "get this in the can." Yikes!
I figure it, this film is a"Rated R for Reality."
We have created a hard hitting truthful unflinching documentary
that shows how some of us really live. We hope it will start a
dialog for change in our world."

-In our film we met Frank, a homeless man in Buffalo. Frank was
staying a a local shelter with his son and was seeing work as
a licensed contractor. Despite his difficult position, Frank had
hope. To me, Frank was inspiring. As we worked on this film and
faced technical challenges, I kept repeating Franks words to myself
as we worked, "I have hope". As the 11th our approached
and the pressure mounted on us to get this one in the can I repeated
to myself, "I have hope".
Today, we received word that a prominent local businessman has
offered Frank a job at his construction company!!!
Frank now has a home and a chance at a job! That is so great!!
