I'm going to really enjoy that INEVITABLE night that a filmmaker walks up on stage to accept his/her Oscar and amongst the list of thank you's, the name "Jim Jannard" will be spoken.
Realistically, I doubt it will be me, but if it was, you would have been second on the list. The first thank you has to go to my "Executive Producer" (my mom, who is helping me buy a Red in the first place, haha).
Of course, I hope by then you will have already been awarded one of your own for Red.
With announcement after announcement of the continuing improvement in an already high quality product without an increase in price, I can't help but to admire and respect you as a man of his word who is fundamentally affecting so many lives by giving a voice to filmmakers who otherwise may never had the chance to tell their stories at this level.
So, "Thank You to Jim Jannard", in advance (with or without the golden guy).
