: Kevin, you are truly THE most amazing writer/director that I have ever seen. I haven't really posted on the board much, but I check it often, hoping that one day I might catch you on the board.
: I am a Young New Jersey 18 year old filmmaker. Have been since I was 8 (believe it or not). I have achieved unparalled success at my age, including multiple videos aired on MTV's TRL and winning some local film festivals, including New Jersey Teen Arts Festival.
: Basically, where I am getting at is that you one of my, if not a complete and total inspiration in my life. I just bought The Clerks/Chasing Amy screenplays yesterday, and read through both. I just finished watching Amy with the screenplay and forgot how beautifully written it is, along with how incredibly well acted and put together it is. Mainly aspects and themes remind me of my day to day life with my friends and girlfriend.
: I just want to say how incredible you are, hoping that you or someone in the Askewinverse is reading this to pass it along to you. I sound like another everday fan, but I am a unique filmmaker (or at least I try to think so). I am passionate about what I want to do, and God willing I can work with you one day! The one thing I want more than anything is hear just one piece of advice from you...Some word of wisdom to help me further advance in my goal, career, and life. You are one of the only ever growing encouragements to strive to be a filmmaker. No matter how people tell you, you are a remarkable and gifted filmmaker, and you never forget that. Godwilling I can work with you someday. Who knows, you might hold open casting calls for Jersey Girl (which I doubt), but hell, I'd audition. Anything to work with you, even if I had to bring you frickin' coffee (yes, even after going to FILM school).
: Alright, I'm probably freaking you out, so if you are reading this (which I hope you can), just know that there is another filmmaker from Jersey who thinks you are the greatest in the world.
: Thank you
