The two awards (Best Narrative Film Award and Best Performance Award to Sarah Lassez) at the 2006 Silverlake Film Festival in Hollywood back in March, audience demand that resulted to a third screening on the week of my 39th birthday back in February at the San Francisco Independent Film Festival and getting written up on Variety, the entertainment industry's premier magazine for film professionals ~ although, cool as there were, they are just footnotes representing our best efforts making this film!
Of all the projects I worked on, "Mad Cowgirl" is my most proudest moment! And, it was such an experience to work with Sarah, Jimmy, Walter, Devon, Vic, Jaason, Christo, Linton, Ron, among others! It has been an education in the world of professional acting for me to witness and take note. Hope to work with each and everyone of you again in the future.
Also the tireless crew: Dawn, James, Marvin, Jeff, McKay, Kym & the Stuntpeople, Kiyomi, Luke, Max, Tony, Dan, among others, who've put their best foot forward and provided suggestion and feedback to make the look and feel of the film authentic. These folks are the best crew I have ever assembled and is honored to have worked with.
I would like to thank Greg for giving me the opportunity to produce his film and in trusting me to do the very best job I can as well as being resourceful whenever I was challenged.
Oh, and thanks to the caterer, of course!
Personally, I discovered and learned more about myself ~ my strengths and my weaknesses, and how to go above and beyond ~ as a working feature film producer.
But, most importantly, I wish to thank you all for your support of my endeavors as well as your continuing support of independent filmmaking.
