A shout-out to my friend Jason Bortz

Jason Bortz is a good friend, a driven and ambitious actor of stage and film, and a man with an enormous heart that would encompass Africa and its sufferings if it could.

Bortz is in the news today … in the Auburn Journal.

But what you really need to know about Jason, whose film company Aestus Films, has produced some flashy, philosophical short films, is that he’s involved in THIS: Scratching the Surface, the short documentary he made about the work that people do there is a deeply affecting glimpse of present-day heroes … little Davids taking on the Goliath of AIDs in Africa.

I wish Jason the best in all of his endeavors, in all of his acting ambitions, and especially in his aims to use his talents to change the world.
