Well, sorta. "Escape from Tomorrow" is a film getting quite a bit of buzz and.... it is the work of one of my former students, Randy Moore. I really am not that amazed by his success, because even at age 15, Randy produced works of genius. We spent a lot of time together and I will happily take a minute amount of credit for doing my best to totally warp him, often with effusive and positive encouragement and at the same time, harsh criticisms.
from The Daily Beast (Hot damn, Rando!)
Another hit from Huffington Post.Shot guerrilla-style—read: completely unauthorized—at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, ‘Escape From Tomorrow’ is the year’s most renegade film. From security concerns to editing in South Korea, the cast and crew tell Marlow Stern how it came to cinemas.
Certainly one of the most sublime intangibles of teaching is watching former students succeed in so many venues, but I get the most joy from the artists, actors and musicians of which there are hundreds. Facebook is certainly great in that respect.
