It’s been one hell of a year. Michelle and I celebrated one year of blogging, attended our first New York Fashion Week, launched 52 Thursdays Consulting and attended our first Film Premier. And while we have had many great accomplishments this year there is no way we would be where we are with out our husbands. They are our photographers, our cheerleaders, our editors, they really help keep this whole thing going and we are so thankful to them for putting up with us!
And while we have had an amazing year, I couldn’t let my husband’s even better year go un-noticed. While building an incredibly successful political media firm over the past 4 years and producing numerous award winning tv commercials, during the busiest time of his career he wrote a screen play that was produced into a short film called, ‘Ignition’.
Casey’s short film ‘Ignition’, won the Volvo Cars-sponsored film contest that opened up the Jalopnik Film Festival held in NYC on November 5th and 6th. Volvo funded the project and our good friends at 8112 Studios did a beautiful job bringing life to Casey’s script. The film tells a story about a grandfather and his grandson repairing their relationship and an old car at the same time. This film isn’t just for the car fanatics out there, it has been getting great reviews with just about everyone because of the easily relatable characters. Watch below (13 minutes).
