A screenplay for a film written by Russell Martin
and produced by Dennis Haysbert
Army and CIA veteran Marcus Trudeau is a renowned remote viewer--someone with the ability to accurately witness events that occurred far away, in the distant past, or even in the future. When Marcus "views" a San Francisco kidnapping and works to save a small girl, he becomes the target of a
multi-national defense conglomerate determined to do anything to ensure that its contracts--and its profits--are safe. Dennis Haysbert, who plays Mike, is the project's executive producer.
Beyond The Edge of The Earth
A book and television documentary by Joseph P. Allen, in collaboration with Russell Martin and Hans Teensma
This stunningly beautfiul book and companion documentary film feature former shuttle astronaut and space-industry executive Joe Allen, who examines the first half century of human travel in space. Allen argues that while the exploration and settlement of remote and unknown regions are elemental human activities, our ventures into space represent a form of exploration that is fundamentally new. For more than three billion years, all life on earth was held fast to the planet. The force of gravity has been the most fundamental aspect of the earth’s evolution. Only with our entries into space have we been able to break that basic rule and take the first gigantic step toward the exploration of worlds other than our own.

Boxing for Cuba
a film based on the book
by Guillermo Vicente Vidal
Say Yes Quickly is marketing the adaptation of Guillermo Vidal's remarkable coming-of-age story to film. Vidal writes about his parents' participation in events that forever altered U.S. Cuban relations when an effort to free children from Fidel Castro's Communist rule sparked Operation Peter Pan. From chance encounters with Fidel Castro and Robert F. Kennedy to life in a dismal Catholic orphanage in Colorado, Vidal perseveres to embrace a redemptive life and--ultimtely--to return to Cuba.
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper writes, "This is the best book I have read in ages. Guillermo Vidal's is a remarkable life. I was heartbroken at the finish, not from the story, but because I had no more to read. A lyrical and magical book."
Concerto A book and adapted screenplay by
Concerto tells the remarkable true story of cellist
and conductor Pablo Casals’s dramatic personal journey for peace and justice in the mid-twentieth century, and his decision at the height of his extraordinary international career to stop performing or conducting, an act of political and moral protest that he maintained for fully thirteen years.

subject that has particular relevance as each of us struggles
with similar challenges today.
