Fog City Mavericks
2 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I drove from Sacramento to San Francisco (and back) to see this movie premiere--and really glad I did. As a big movie fan and a life-long Northern Californian, I was surprised how many Oscar-winning films have been made in the Bay Area. As a fashion designer who really wants to stay in the Bay Area as opposed to going to LA, George Lucas' comments about persistence, community and having a vision really resonated with me.

Hey, if he and all the other filmmakers can make it in SF, so can other artists.

Would recommend this film
