Expect a return to more film-centric posts soon as I hope to review Stories We Tell and Before Midnight this month.

I’ve spent much of the last two months working to promote a new homelessness campaign in New York City. Regular readers of Print the Legend may notice that I don’t post much about work matters on this blog.

I also wrote a piece about my involvement with the campaign, which ran in the New York Writers Coalition’s Narrator blog and PolicyMic. Follow those links and watch the video to learn more.
