A year ago, before Local Legend Films became a reality, Jayme and the guys attended FOCUS 2017, Free Spirit Media’s annual fundraising event. The guys were awed and amazed by all the possibilities.
Free Spirit Media is leading the charge of creating diversity in media.
The event this year marked the anniversary of the seeds of Local Legend Films becoming a reality. After last year’s event, we began talks to develop our partnership with Free Spirit Media, our 501(c)3 Fiscal Sponsor.
What a difference a year makes!
We started Local Legend Films. The guys have part time jobs as apprentices, we even hired Christine (seen below to the right of Deangelo) to help us get our operations up and running. It’s been a difficult year in many ways, but it’s been a great year in a lot of other ways.
It was great to see the guys handing out their new business cards and even greater when a trailer for a short documentary film aired, hearing them say, “We gotta make a film, too.”
Here we are without all the props 🙂
