PAMELA JO BOWMAN – MESA, ARIZONA – This last Wednesday, Cyndi and I flew over to LA to talk to two producers. We went looking for direction and information about distribution and marketing. These seasoned producers were very helpful. At the end of the day we were exhausted from the amount of information we obtained and exhilarated in learning that we were doing things right. We are seeing the results through the interest of some serious distributors. We told them whom we had contacted and who had responded and they assured us that any of those companies were reputable and could be trusted to package our projects successfully. There were two moments that made me realize the truth of the saying “Ignorance is bliss.” In viewing our trailers both producers commented how ambitious it was for our crew to think we could go to another country and start the film industry there. Both producers had to swallow their amusement at our naiveté. Seeing our situation through their eyes made us laugh at ourselves and also smile because we didn’t know what we couldn’t do and so we ended up doing it. It all began with Jabbes. He didn’t know what he was asking for when he approached Cyndi requesting her to help him shoot a movie in Zambia. None of us did, but we did it.
