    Filmmaker Nick Lewis calls into Film Courage to share his story of a lawyer turned filmmaker in the making of Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story. We learn why he was compelled to make a movie about Jay’s story, why he set a $215,000 Kickstarter goal, how he reached that goal, and the film’s resulting theatrical deal. The film opened in over 100 theaters across the country in November 2011.
