WASHINGTON, DC, 14 January 2018 — I’m delighted to update friends, colleagues and supporters that FREELANCERS with Bill Gentile soon will be moving to the distribution phase.

We’ve scheduled a screening this week at American University, a generous supporter of this project. The event will be held at the class of Matt Cipollone, whose editing of the documentary serves as his graduate degree thesis project. Matt graduates with a Masters Degree this May.

Following the screening, my plan is to deliver the film to the artist who will provide the sound/music foundation of the documentary, and who will mix the sound and music into the final cut. Then we take it to potential distributors. It’s been a long journey, filled with intense, hard work, much learning and a tremendous amount of fun with friends, new and old.

If you haven’t done so already, you may want to watch the FREELANCERS “sizzle reel,” which Matt also edited. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr5ZwWrUD5E&t=8s

Austin Tice

Last month, a video surfaced on the Internet showing an American freelance journalist who had been captured in Syria by a group of armed men. It provided hope that Austin Tice may still be alive.

Tice, a 31-year-old Texan, went missing in a Damascus suburb in mid-August close to a town I lived in for 18 months before I left Syria last February. Shortly before he disappeared, Tice noted on Twitter that the town was “the most dangerous place I’ve been here” and that he was “glad to be out.”

Tice has clearly been apprehended, but we don’t know by whom. The U.S. State Department still believes the reporter is being held by government forces and says that it could not authenticate the video footage. Terrorism experts believe the video was staged.
