When making short movies, I had a video production company and I interviewed older people for Legacy Videos. For years, I heard 'I regret that I didn't do this and that.'

"When making short movies, I had a video production company and I interviewed older people for Legacy Videos. For years, I heard 'I regret that I didn't do this and that.'," says Cecotka. "I thought about these things, but I also left my dream collecting dust in the process. I'm also trying to move the spotlight on small charities that have no publicity, money, and stars attached. After the event, they will enjoy more exposure. There is one more reason -- move as many people through real life experience as possible, so those with fear and procrastination will start their own projects in January 2008."

Join Mike in the Hollywood theatre before Christmas, register at social network at http://www.ImagineHollywood.com -- no experience necessary, and all are welcome. This is non-union event.

"There is a mind game at the end of welcome video. If we end up in the same place it means we are compatible." says Cecotka
