The state of the company is very, very, busy. There are presently many projects coming into fruition, all living up to our mantra of being diverse and dynamic. We have an historical novel (Four and Twenty Blackbirds) that will publish shortly. Our feature film, Moon Creek Cemetery is into the midst of heavy editing on the last 30% of the footage shot for it. Approximately 70% of the movie has already been edited, so it's only a matter of combining the two segments. Now, there are the animation effects that need to be folded in, as well. We had hopes for New Years, and will bust our butt up until that point, but it might be more around Spring Break before you see it. IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT. Our composer, Michael D. Koehler is laying down tracks for the first scenes that have been blocked out. If anyone saw the trailer on the movie's Facebook page, you can hear the recording artist's work.
T.R.I.A.G.E GROUP has been juxtaposed (compared) to other seminars in multicultural education. Mr. Pierce took in a recent seminar in Cultural Proficiency at The Museum of Tolerance, in Los Angeles. While there, he had a chance to hear keynote speaker Dr. Terrence Roberts, who was one of the nine students in Little Rock, Arkansas that volunteered to integrate Little Rock High School. Mr. Roberts was presented a copy of Pierce's "Microaggressions Across The Great Divide", which he immediately recognized as dealing with the threat of stereotype and it's nominative innovator, Dr. Claude Steele. Dr. Roberts shared an amusing aside with Mr. Pierce as to how dissimilar, politically, Claude is, to his twin brother Shelby. Pierce in turn shared with the civil rights icon how he felt encased in history, having met Martin Luther King, Sr. and one of the Little Rock Nine...Pierce saw how his T.R.I.A.G.E. program was as viable as any that was being offered by institutions or resource centers dealing with sensitization. He looks forward to taking the next step forward with this empowering process.
