Stephen Seidel's Renegade Reporting red carpet rendezvous hit the nail on the head once again. Stephen's reporting style, as quoted by ID Imaging PR's Sharon Jimenez delivers, "Real questions for real people, but always leaves us wanting more." Simply Delicious by Cheryl cupcakes glazed the red carpet to make the night, twice as nice, with some pretty neat sweets. Sorry Mom, but these cupcakes took the cake, and made my mouth melt in a barrage of July 4th fireworks. 

The founder of the 1st Annual Movieville Film Festival, Alan J. Bailey, gave Renegade an indepth look at what it takes to succeed as a filmmaker. Also, Mad Men's Emmy award winning Sound Mixer, Peter Bentley, shared the sounds that most affect his life, as well as his take on Jon Hamm. Lastly, Stephen Seidel's edutainment style, combines laughter with love, to discover how the local Sarasota community will rival that of LA or NY, with such attributes as the largest green screen in the US, courtesy of Sanborn Studios. 

Support local filmmakers and arts programs, to aid in the creative mind infiltration of our youth, both tomorrow's visionaries and today's renegades. Find the renegade within you, and step outside the box-office. -Stephen Seidel, Renegade Reporting
