No, not Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel. Not even Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick.
Jim and I had to ask ourselves, "Did we want to become producers of a documentary?"
Fortunately we had met the production team at Frame: Adam Braun, Patrick Gines and Bryan Zhang. Based in Tallahassee, FL and boasting projects produced for companies and organizations both large and small, Frame could handle the know-how necessary to steer us in the right direction and might be able to help us get this snowball rolling down the hill.
I had given Adam a copy of Jim's book, and after reading it, Adam was intrigued with the possibility of telling the story. Several dozen emails, text messages and phone calls later, we had sketched out a tentative plan to see how we might be able to raise the funds necessary to make a documentary.
We would need to create some teaser videos and a promo video. We wanted to demonstrate that this was a serious project and that we were willing to roll up our sleeves and activate it. After more discussion, we decided a road trip to Florida was in order.
Leo Bloom: Max, I think we're getting in too deep.
Max Bialystock: Too deep? This is nothing. I'll tell you when we're getting in too deep.
