The NIMBY EXPERIENCE was incredible and was really wonderful to watch (incredible editing of so much footage!). You and your crew were able to show Luis Guzman as a homeless individual in a truly moving way (I alternated between bursting out laughing and wanting to cry). He was funny, optimistic, bewildered, sad, tired, determined and lonely. The film showed how long a day truly is when you are homeless; it also showed how faceless homeless people are to others. And, it showed that people can easily acknowledge others who are homeless with a look in the eye and a smile and a word - something that simple and that easy can keep people who are homeless from losing touch with reality. People need to understand that they shouldn't be frightened of saying a simple "hello" as they walk by someone who is homeless. The film shows this extremely well. It was creative, funny, had a great sound track, showed statistics in a clear and stark way, and had a huge impact on me. I want to show it to everyone I know. I really enjoyed working with all of you and would love to continue to work with you in any way that I can be helpful.
