Max Hardberger's story was told in a front page feature article in the Los Angeles Times. Click here to view a copy of the article.  The response to that article was overwhelming. On the day it was published, Max's phone started to ring off the hook with calls from Hollywood producers, talent agents and the media. It seemed as though everyone wanted Max's story.

Max soon did a whirlwind tour of Hollywood, where in just five days he met with seven talent agencies (including four of the top five), thirteen feature film producers, four reality show producers, a best-selling author, two screenwriters, and even a Norwegian newspaper reporter.

One producer brought Max onto the set of an $80 million production, where he observed the shooting of a machine gun sequence with one of Hollywood's top actors. Another producer entertained Max at the famous Beverly Hills Hotel. There were plenty of visits to studios and glitzy producer offices. At the end of the trip, Max selected one of Hollywood's top talent agencies to represent his interests. Max's agents scheduled another set of meetings a few weeks later with even more producers to discuss developing Max's story into a feature film. Max is currently evaluating his options. 

To help evaluate and develop his opportunities, Max formed a production company, Spearpoint Films, LLC. Click here to view the company's website.
