After decades of despair, mentally disabled man

finds happiness in East Dallas

Published: Feb 26, 2012 11:23 PM

Everywhere he goes, everyone knows Bob.

For more than a decade, Bob Crawford has been a familiar sight at shops, restaurants and all manner of gathering places in East Dallas.

He was not, at first, a welcome one.

He was disheveled and obviously mentally disabled. He had a horrific past,

Hi Everyone

Lisa and I screened the 45 minutes version of His Name is Bob at the Dallas Junior League.  It was a great success, with everyone staying for the Q&A.  It really amazes me every time we screen this film, the reaction from the crowd and how much they have bonded with Bob during the film.

We answered about 20 great questions about Bob childhood, the making of the film and what Bob’s live is like now.

Thanks Junior League it was a great time.

Bob calls me about 10 times a week. Sometimes he is in a good mood and just wants to tell me he loves me, but once in a while he calls me to find out what is doing on with his movie and I have to tell him to please be patient.

But what is going on with the film? 

Right now:

  • We are gearing up to re edit the 45 minute version to submit to the 41st USA film festival. 
  • We are working on getting our editing system upgraded to Avid Media Composer 5
  • We are considering what is needed to get the 1:48 minute version in a format that can be sold via DVD.  This is mostly legal stuff about the music rights.  What music stays and what has to go.  Sound somewhat easy…. not so.
  • We have one distributor that is interested in the film but we are at the bottom of the list at the moment and just have to wait. They like the film and want to work with us, but are busy working on other projects.
  • We are also still waiting to hear from and couple more film festival.  Fingers crossed we will get into one more festival.

We had an amazing screening to a sold out crowd at the 40th USA film festival. We could not have imagined a better first screening. People cried and laughed.  We are so grateful to the USA Film Festival for believing in our film and for all the Bob fans that showed up to make that such a beautiful night.

It is almost 6 years since we started this project and tonight we show the trailer and one of the songs from the film at the Kettle Art Allier in Deep Ellum.  It has been a very long road.  We are hoping to have showings of the film in March and/or April.

Hi Everyone

We are making the very last cuts and audio tunes.  We have submitted the film to 6 film festivals and should start hearing from them by Dec 15th.  We are hoping to have some kind of non public limited screening some time in January.  But as we are hoping to get in to the Dallas International Film festival we can’t have a public showing before April 2010 here in Dallas.

We worked about 12-14 hours a day for 3 weeks and showed up at FedEx at the last possible submission time at 8:31 pm as the doors to FedEx where closing.  The man saw three cars speeding threw the parking lot and 4 people running up to the door at the same time so he let us in.  Now all we have to do is WAIT 2 1/2 months to know if we got in.

We are being helped to get this film done by September 2009.  Matt McClain from Filmworkers is working on the color corrections.  Phil Rogers from TakeOne is fixing all of our bad sound issues.  We are working on getting someone to redo the titles in the film so they look better.  We have gotten the rights to use a Tom Waits and a Beth Hard song.  We are working on getting Shawn Colvin but have been unsuccessful todate.  Mike Graff has offered the use of some of his songs from Course of Empires.  Other great musicians are Brad Hauser, Kenny Withrow and Will Lindow who are working on mood music and other original sound.  Thanks everyone we are very grateful for the help.

Hi everyone.  We are very close to picture lock.  Once this happens them all the other creative people will get their hands on the footage; Sound Engineer, Sound & Music Composers, Graphics Artists and Color Correction and Final transfer people.  We are very excited about this and have high hopes for the completion of this mega project.
