Can my failed reality show attempt help my buddy build his foundation? I sure hope so.

In Jan '09 I shot a teaser to pitch "Focus", a reality series about my studio and the entire operation I was running at that time. Kevin Swan & Raffaello VanCouten of Cocktail Napkin Productions approached me with the idea and we decided to go for it. Unfortunately, it never got picked up and hasn't seen the light of day until now. I decided to release this today because I'd like it to get some deserving attention for my friend and producer, Kevin Swan.
