Over the last couple weeks, I have featured interviews and info about Fancypants, a new movie produced by Chicago's Humble Pie Films, starring a lot of great Chicago talent. It was obvious that this was a labor of love for everyone involved.
Thanks to Jennifer Fortney of Cascade Communications, I was able to get red carpet access for pieces that appeared here on Johngy's Beat, as well as online pieces for Global Traveler, JW's Wrestling Memorabilia and WrestlingFigs.com. I want to thank Jennifer for everything. It was a real pleasure dealing with her.
I sincerely hope I have opened a few eyes to Fancypants. It's a fresh, heart-warming movie made by Chicago people.
As I complete my coverage of the Chicago premiere of Fancypants, I am leaving you with several pictures of the cast and crew behind this eciting new movie. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed being at the premiere.
