Lila is the character of a short film that somehow completes a sort of aesthetic trilogy I have started in 2008 with “A short love story in Stop Motion” ( vimeo.com/877053 ) and then followed in 2011 with “A shadow of blue” ( vimeo.com/29573040 )
I had the pleasure to have the talented Sandy Lavallart composing this beautiful music sandylavallart.com

You are a first year college basketball head coach. You have no gym. You have no returning players. Not a single winning season in school history.
That’s not a recipe for winning a single game, let alone qualifying for a berth in the Junior College National Championship Tournament. Yet, this is exactly what Preston Beverly and the Lincoln College of New England team did this season.
LCNE is a two-year Junior College (NJCAA Division III) that has essentially built a basketball program overnight. In his first year at the helm, Coach Beverly took on the task of recruiting a group of overlooked players to play at a tiny school in rural Connecticut with none of the usual selling points coaches employ in their arsenal - a state of the art facility, athletic scholarships, a tradition of winning.
All he had was his reputation as a former D1 player at VMI and a vision of creating a winning system on the blank canvas of this program. From scheduling practice time at a local Boys and Girls Club to facing the challenge of gelling 14 disparate young men into a cohesive unit in just a few short months, Coach Beverly certainly had his hands full in his first season.
“Hard Work and Family: A JuCo Story”, an all-access documentary short, immerses you into the hearts and minds of an unorthodox college basketball team. Fueled by grit, determination and a strong family ethic, they fight relentlessly for the school’s first national tournament win. While the rest of the country was caught up in the brackets and upsets of “March Madness”, this story gives voice and visibility to the widely ignored realm of JuCo basketball.

Whatever you’re building, build the best. Allow it to rely on a firm foundation. Give it room to expand. And never forget WHY you built it in the first place.
Thanks for the hospitality DC. I’ll see you again soon.

He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.
Yesterday my brother and my best friend @bloc22 married the love of his life. I couldn’t be more proud of you for making such a commitment and I couldn’t be more happy for you that you’ve found true love. I’ve known you for 20+ years and to say that Fallon makes you a better man is an understatement. You guys compliment each other and understand each other like no one else. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to stand beside you as your best man. I love you guys and wishing y’all prosperity and longevity.
COMMUNICATION. UNITY. PATIENCE. GOD.
