Since Derek is our Special Guest we decided we’d spend a 1/2 hour at the end of the show and recap our SON OF A PITCH project!  We recorded the video as well and will post to YouTube next week!

 

Son of a Pitch is a segment where Fable Forest Films will work a project all the way from concept, through brainstorming, script writing, Pre, Prod, Post, distribution, etc.
