Feedback that came in last night:
Michael, I watched your film last night, and I must say, you did a fantastic job. I was seriously impressed by the effort you put into it. The number of locations you shot at was enough to impress me, (Tokyo and Singapore!!!) but combine that with the the vast array of interesting people, old-school financial clips, and compelling stories, and all I can say is wow! But aside from that, the content of the film is really what shined. My girlfriend, who typically isn’t interested in financial TV, watched your film with me and she was riveted the entire time. You educated viewers about the nature of markets, and then showed how those markets can often go to unsustainable extremes in either direction. There were quite a few bits of real wisdom in there as well, combined with some serious moments of sobering reality. The scene where you’re driving down the street gazing at one empty house after another is enough to make any potential real estate investor think twice about what he’s getting himself into. As a trader myself, and as a person who runs a website for traders, I really enjoyed the parallels to trading that were brought out by industry heavyweights and even the poker stars … and others. They exposed things about risk and money management that every new trader should know before they make their first trade. In fact, your film should be required viewing for every person who wants to open a brokerage account. It would save a bunch of people a lot of time, effort, and money investing in marketplaces that they have no business being in. Again, great job and I look forward to the next one.
