PICTURED: Executive Producer Joseph Alvaro and EP and Editor Paul C. Rosen are interviewed on the red carpet.
"What a wonderful evening. The film was so well received." says Nitrous Owner Paul C. Rosen.
"After the screening, there was a Q&A in the theater—the audience had so many great questions and comments. Their reaction reflects the overwhelmingly positive feedback we get when we interview people on the street for the upcoming web platform LuckyOnesTV.com. I'm really proud that the project is being recognized for its very special content and that everyone's hard work is paying off." exclaimed Rosen.
About The Lucky Ones
When Joseph's wife Frances passed away in 2009, the producer and author was devastated, but he never stopped being thankful for the life they shared and turned his attention to raising three teenage children. It wasn’t until 2014 when he and friend, Matt Zoller Seitz, editor-at-large at RogerEbert.com and the television critic for New York magazine and Vulture.com, realized that they shared a common bond – their appreciation for the wives that they loved, and had lost. They both felt that they were one of “The Lucky Ones.” They also recognized that there wasn’t a platform for people to celebrate and memorialize their loved ones who had passed.
As a result of this “Aha” moment, they decided to create The Lucky Ones, a web series, and digital platform. The Lucky Ones brings to life those we’ve lost in five-minute video vignettes, creating a biographical profile of the special bond shared between two people. The platform welcomes people from all walks of life to celebrate that special someone through the telling of wonderfully sweet stories filled with love, humor, and memories.
The platform launches in June. For more information please visit this link to subscribe to The Lucky Ones newsletter.
