Best Experience Ever.

Hey, there Boys and Gals! This is Shaun Paul Costello here! I was the executive producer on this wonderfully brilliant and titillating little film called KNOCK"EM DEAD! I'm just writing to say thank you, yes THANK YOU to all the people who helped Jose, myself and the rest of the cast/crew to make this movie a reality. I'm not just thanking the people who helped with the production (Thank anyone who helped even in the slightest way though) but those of you who have seen it and supported it through the festivals and have watched it grow from the beginning. All the kind comments and buzz you guys have been creating for us has been so helpful keeping us pumped and motivated to get the full length script out there to be made with a real budget. For those of you keeping tabs on us some very good things have come out of our trip to L.A. so keep your fingers crossed and say a little prayer for us.

This is by far the best film I ever worked on and I was blessed to work with such a great crew(Jose, Tom, Katy, Jim, Jolene, Lisa, Adrian, Casey, Farrah, as well as many others) and such a talented and beautiful cast (Chris, Mary, Emilie, Charles, Brian, Gina see the profile for full list for everyone but all are loved equally).

The making of this film is what film-making is supposed to be about. A few crazy kids with a camera, no budget, and a dream running around the city of brotherly love making cinematic magic during the summer. I could not ask for anything more (other then to do it again with a budget and with the toys the pros get to play with). Make the magic live once more!

On a final note I love you guys! and I'll see you in the theaters soon (hopefully).

Your pal,

Shauny Boy
