I’ve had a lot on my plate this week—not because there is more work to do at the office, or that my social calendar is busier than usual. Rather, I’ve been cramming to get ready for one of my favorite nights of the year: Oscar night. If you feast on films as much as I do, and appreciate the magic that goes into movie-making, there is no better way to celebrate the art than to enjoy the ride that is the Academy Awards.

Speaking of magic and the movies, in this issue, we introduce you to a Clayton man who played a ‘key’ role in the making of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, a leading Oscar contender this year. So far, I’ve seen six of the nine Best Picture nominees, but the week isn’t over yet. Let the popcorn flow…and see you at the movies!
