In April of last year, while on a trip to New York City, I went across the Hudson to New Jersey to see Daniel Labarbera, a buddy of mine.  He had been filming a documentary for the past month or so and wanted to show me some footage.  After watching for a few minutes, I knew that he had picked an interesting subject, to say the least.  At the end of the conversation, I volunteered my services as editor.

Throughout the following year I devoted whatever spare time I had to whittling down the massive pile of footage into a short, snappy documentary.

It is my extreme honor and pleasure to announce that The Professional: A Stevie Blatz Story has been selected for Slamdance 2019!
