Screening at Raleigh Studios

Last Tuesday my new work-in-progress trailer was screened in the Mary Pickford Theater at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. It was the first large viewing, including a brief question and answer session attended by apprx. 50 industry professionals and friends.  From the Heart Productions & Carole Dean of the Roy W. Dean Film & Video Grants produced the event.

I showed a just-completed, shorter trailer that had some of the new footage I’d been shooting. The reaction was wonderful!

I’d been editing non-stop for five straight days and didn’t think I’d make it. The screening was at 6pm and my last cut was at 4:30pm. Whew!

Emmett - a documentary by Dan Chapman

This is a documentary about my brother, who has been a role model for me all my life. Thousands of people in many countries have also been influenced and inspired by him. This film is a window into an unusual creative community. The Stick has been used by groups like Aerosmith, King Crimson, Santana, Dave Matthews Band, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Robbie Robertson, Paula Cole, Tangerine Dream, The Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soliel, among many more from around the planet. – Dan
