Along the lines of finding amazing projects to present that I think have come from the truest place from which an artist can create, I was approached by a guy named Hamid Tourabpouor when he was setting out to create his first feature film, Zombies. Clearly the initial contact was from the association with the family legacy, at least I thought. As it turns out, it doesn’t matter if that was the reason he dialed the phone because in keeping with my philosophy that your creative will put you where you need to be when you need to be there, Hamid and I became instant friends as we began to speak and connect on the level of two entrepreneurs talking about product exposure and other boring shit to people who don’t do what we do.
Anyway, Hamid’s commitment to his project and his goals as an artist were inspiring to me after more than a decade of meeting and speaking with people who were, well… not of the same committed ilk. We quickly connected on an entrepreneurial level and I did what I could to offer him some guidance for his first time in the director’s chair.
A few phone calls later and he was knee deep in production… and I was proud of him.
Not long after that, Hamid asked if I would be willing to join his project but it seemed douchy to jump in at that point so I told him I’d be honored to present his film.
Now, I’m proud to announce that he has finished Zombies and it will be coming your way very soon and man, I can’t wait for you guys to see this one!
