up my AC and see that you were chosen for AC Close-Up. At last a cinematographer
that I have knowledge of. I had lunch today with a school teacher and she wants me to
help her 6th grade class shoot a dv.They have written the script and I visited the school
with her. So these kids are asking me for my autograph and they wanted to know how
many famous films that I have shot. It almost brought tears to my face,of course I had
to tell them that I wasn't famous. I swear David those kids acted like the PD-170 was a
Panaflex Millenium. I really enjoyed reading your comments in the ASC Close-up inter-
view. Before the teacher meant me for lunch,I had my AC open with your picture on the
page. When she arrived she said,who's that guy? I said,"he's the cinematographer who
shot North Fork". I suggested that she rent the film at blockbuster and view it. I also said,
"he's well known for taking time on the forum to help newbies and nobodies,solve their
filmmaking problems". David thank you so much for taking the time to help members here
on the forum. Congratulations!

On a side note I also saw the poster for Akeelah and the Bee at my local cinemark. It is a great looking poster that really seemed to embody the look you were going for from your producton diary. I cant wait to see it.
