All American Zombie Drugs Texas Premiere

Growing up in a home where the accomplishments you made were secondary to everything else either crushes your self esteem or creates somewhat of an overachiever. If I had to pick one, I'd say I'm the latter. Not to the point of annoyance... ok well maybe but that's not the point. The point is that it makes it hard to do things you're proud of because even if everyone else thinks it's great, to you it's just mediocre. So, when the time came to say goodbye to Alex Ballar and Beau Nelson, I felt like we had accomplished something to be proud of. I didn't have anything to do with the film so I can't take credit for the cheers and laughs it produced but I was damn proud to be a part of getting it here and having a successful run and raising money for a great charity. It was honestly a bit surreal to be surrounded by so many friends and family. I just stood back and watched it unfold and was genuinely proud to see them having such a great time.

Alright, enough of that... The guys got a great response from the film and we knocked it out of the park on donations for Operation Kindness. We had a great group of friends and family helping along the way so they of course deserve some acknowledgment... My brother John Pace for helping put it all together. Stacia Langenheder was the main contact for Operation Kindness plus she kept me level headed and calm for the most part. Wolfgang Weber and Gloria Shuri Nava (AKA Glowpinkstah) for coming all the way in from CA to be a part of the festivities. Angelika Film Center and Trinity Hall in Dallas for allowing us to use their facilities. The volunteers from Operation Kindness who brought all the beautiful animals out for us to see and interact with. Our super cool photographers Mason Pelt, William Shea and Deborah Frances. The local filmmakers who made the trip out in support Jason and Lewaine Heath, Kristen Hall, Joshua Moreno, Robert Luke and Kevin A. Green. Our esteemed emcees Ken Harrelson with AngryPuppyFilms and Devin Pike. And last but certainly not least, to Alex and Beau for taking the time out of their busy schedules and allowing us to use their film as a platform to raise awareness for Operation Kindness and give some holiday love to our fuzzy little friends. We definitely couldn't have done it without you!!!

Stay tuned and keep a look out for all the red carpet pics coming up very soon!! Thanks again to everyone who came out in support!!
