The Kiwanis Factor

The Kiwanis Club is an organization of volunteers dedicated to “changing the world, one child and one community at a time”. The Library of Congress’ Packard Campus is dedicated to preserving our cultural and film heritage “one film at a time”.
So, Paul was honored when the Walnut Creek, California chapter of the Kiwanis Club asked him to speak at their luncheon meeting about our documentary These Amazing Shadows.  Paul regaled them with stories of production….and post production (about Rob Reiner and Tim Roth), and then showed the attendees the first 12 minutes of the film. When he stopped the DVD player, there was an audible sigh from the crowd….as if to say “We want to see more”.  (One person knowingly said “Always leave them wanting more. Right?")
The Kiwanis loved our documentary and were very complimentary….and this was after seeing only the first 12 minutes of the film. Paul explained that they could see the remainder of “this amazing film” starting April 13th through most major cable providers via Video On Demand (including Comcast, Time Warner, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Cox). And the Kiwanis were pleased.
Whether it be a crowd of 400, or a smaller group of 20, we have been heartened by the overwhelmingly positive response of audiences to our film, and remain proud of These Amazing Shadows.
