This week I wanted to highlight two people: Helen and Andy Cappuccino. Right around this time last year , we were deep in pre production for our film. The problem was that we only had about 2/3 of the budget (believe it or not, this is common). Literally in the last few weeks they swooped in, sent from God, and covered the rest of the financing for the movie. They also provided transportation cars, medical supplies for props, and delicious dinners.

Investors always feel apprehensive about backing a director who has never done a feature length film before. Helen and Andy are those rare birds willing to give a first time director a chance to prove himself and I owe my eternal gratitude for their faith! I’ve included a picture so that if you ever see them walking down the street, be sure to grovel at their feet. These are two real heroes!



  1. And they are even nicer than they are generous! Two of the loveliest people on the planet. Such a pleasure to know them, and call them friends. Thank you, Helen and Andy: I salute you!
