IMPACT-The Jewish Boxer Documentary Continues Pre Production

So, I spent the afternoon with Jewish Boxer and professional boxing referee Ron Lipton as pre-pro continues on IMPACT: The Jewish Boxer.  What a delight and treat it was to have some decent times and finally getting to meet the man behind the emails and communication.  He is a proud and focused individual that wears his toughness on his sleeve.  We spent the afternoon scouting locations and exploring the right enviornment for upcoming shoots as we continue to work on the film.  Ron's home is situated on a huge farm plot isolated from the eclectic buzz of the city on a country road.  We spoke for hours and discussed his story.  This is a man who shows no fear, shows no mercy in the ring and is unafraid to brilliantly articulate his thoughts about the sport and his story that has been laced with tradgedies and triumphs.  I feel very fortunate to have met him and look forward to our upcoming shoots that will tell his story in his own words to a captivated audience.  Ron's Pit Bull Terrior mixed greeted me at the door and we traveled to several locations to decide on how the film would be shot.  This is a man who not only can articulate his thoughts clearly about the sport but can also place you in a hypnotic trance as you listen to his story.  He does not faulter and makes every effort to portray so much of the pain and anger he has had to endure in a way that is constantly under control and ready for the next opponent.   Releases and preliminary test shots are already beginning and the excitement that Ron has about describing his past fights and battles is the same enthusiasm I feel about making this film.  It is like a battle cry in regard to producing this project and my emotions run parallel to what Ron has had to endure in the ring.  The finished product will be a sign of true victory during a process that already feels like a two round knockout victory as we approach further production.  Stay tuned.
