A personal message from Chaz Ebert

Chaz best picture.jpg

To all those who have expressed concern about the future of "Ebert Presents at the Movies," thank you!

We are moved by the response from friends, bloggers, viewers, newspaper writers and even heavyweights in the industry stepping up in an incredible effort to rally support for Roger and the "Ebert Presents" show.

It is clear that this show is valued and respected for the quality of content and programming, and the contribution it makes to the fabric of our culture. We are also pleased that so many of you agree with us about the talents of Christy Lemire, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky and our contributors.

We are in the midst of sifting through a number of suggestions and offers, while engaging in networking, negotiating and partner outreach to develop what we hope will be a long term solution.

We want you to know that we are indeed listening to you and looking at the crowd-funding options so many of you suggested in your comments on Roger's blog entry.

We hope that you will keep the faith with us as we debate the possibilities, decide the best way to go, and set up the appropriate mechanisms,

I am beginning to feel like I'm in a scene from "It's a Wonderful Life," and that at the 11th hour the citizens of Bedford Falls are going to come in and save good old George Bailey. Whether we make our financial target or not, I can honestly say we feel privileged to be alive and healthy enough to produce the show, and this last year has been both a pleasure and a success. I'm sure with your help, we will find a solution.

So please stay tuned, and we will have more information for you very soon!

If you have specific offers of help, please write to us at bedfordfalls@ebertpresents.com, or call us at 773-528-7700.

Thank you, Chaz
