With recent conversations about professional athletes and their lack of a long-term financial outlook/planning (see the recent ESPN 30 For 30 documentary, Broke as a good example), it's good to see some athletes invest their earnings into businesses, instead of additional houses, cars, jewelry, expanded entourage, women, etc, which may bring immediate satisfaction, but may not necessarily be income generators for when you retire (retirement that comes quite early for many).

Continuing where we left off with the series, after several months on the film festival circuit, and working to attract the right distributor to the film, the series returns, with a trifecta of very informative posts on deliverables (a very involved part of the distribution process that many of you filmmakers will probably have to deal with at some point), spread out over the next 2 weeks (starting with this one), leading up to the film's officially theatrical opening on Friday, October 26th, in Los Angeles, at the Rave Theaters in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw plaza.

You know, now that I think about it, if my mother were still alive today (she died almost exactly 10 years ago after battling cancer for 2 years)... if she were still alive today, I actually think she'd love Tyler Perry movies, despite the fact that I'm certainly not a fan, as I'm sure most of you know very well by now.
