My friend, Stacey Holman, is an alum of NYU's Graduate Film program.  Along with five other NYU alums, they formed an underground film collective called 6 Leagues.  Together, they put together a film anthology that looks at relationships in flux, with each filmmaker looking at a different point on the relationship's timeline.  The result is the film 6 Things I Never Told You.

In addition to Stacey, the filmmakers in 6 Leagues are Cinque Northern, Ed DuRante, Rod Guiles, Caran Hartsfield and James Richards.

Love to see folks gettin' all Wu-Tang on a situation, that is, using collective power and resources to get things done.

    You’re welcome, Curt. Glad to know things went well. Besides the fact that I’ve known Stacey for years, I thought this was a great example of pooling resources in order to push creative work out into the world. Congrats again, and I’m looking forward to seeing it at its next screening.
