Welcome to "Full Speech Ahead!" − the program where we look at communication in all its many facets, with an emphasis on the spoken word.  I'm your host, public speaking coach Milo Shapiro from www.PublicDynamics.com .

My guest today:  How does a writer for film go about finding words for the page such that they ring true when spoken − especially by someone else?  How does a poet plan for a poem that feels as heartfelt when read on paper as it does aloud?  And how can one interview people about some of the most tragic tales of their lives for a documentary while walking the line between getting emotional and knowing that this is going in the movie?

James Anthony Ellis has tackled all of that and more.  He'll share his insights as a writer, producer and filmmaker including his challenges in the writing and interview process for the opening documentary: "Indoctrinated: The Grooming of our Children into Prostitution."   Jim can be reached via www.LegacyProductions.org.

For questions or comments on this particular show,  on "Full Speech Ahead!" in general, or to speak to Milo directly on any matter, you can reach him through the Contact Info link at www.IMPROVentures.com .
