A Vice President at Gracie Films just requested to read Retro Band because she read the logline in the UCLA Showcase Festival program and thought it sounded like a great idea for a film.
She's reading it now.
Gracie Films produced a number of amazing films... like Spanglish, and As Good as it Gets, and Jerry Maguire, and Big and Say Anything. Oh yeah, and a little show you might have heard of called the Simpsons.
I'd of course be amazed and honored to be in that company.
It's crazy, I now have some kind of interest around 5 of my scripts. I know these things can evaporate, but I do feel like there will eventually be this tipping point and stuff will really start rolling.

how many VPs does Gracie have?

I'm not sure. imdb pro has 4 people listed for gracie, but the lowest level they list is executive vp and my contact isn't on there.
But my contact does have an associate producer credit on the simpson's movie. That's not too shabby at all.
