Last night, I was invited to record more interview for a special screening of the documentary, Gleason, at the LA Live Regal Theater.
I saw various celebrities/cast and crew for the film, including Steve Gleason, himself, and his wife, Michel Varisco.
We interviewed a few people, including Nick Cannon, Michel Varisco, Scott Fujita (Producer, Football Player), and Director Clay Tweel. There were some other people on the list that we thought we would see, but they snuck in.
The documentary is about Steve Gleason, a former NFL player who played for the New Orleans Saints. He made a play that became well-known in Saints history. He blocked a punt by Atlanta Falcon’s Michael Koenen in the first quarter. He was later diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The film documents his life and struggles with ALS, as well as the team/foundation called, Team Gleason, that he creates to help others with the disease.
It is raw and emotional with funny moments and I recommend all of you to see it.
