Ron Judkins, two-time Academy Award® winner for his sound work on Jurassic Park and Saving Private Ryan, and Director/Writer of Finding Neighbors joined me this morning!

Ron Judkins, two-time Academy Award® winner for his sound work on Jurassic Park and Saving Private Ryan, joins me on today's show! And just recently, he wrote and directed, Finding Neighbors, which just screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

Filmmaking is Ron's passion, and Finding Neighbors is his second independent feature film as a writer and director. It's the story of a formerly acclaimed graphic novelist who goes looking for true connection outside of his marriage and... over the fence. It has often been described as a "coming of age film for middle-age."

This film has screened at several festivals around the country, always to very enthusiastic audiences. Recently it won "Best of Festival" at the Richmond International Film Festival in Virginia. Finding Neighbors just premiered at the Newport Beach Film Festival!

This is a film that was made on a shoe-string by friends and neighbors in the Atwater Village area of Los Angeles. The creation of the movie is a great story about how a small group of people with a vision can pull off a miracle -- against all odds. It stars Academy Award® nominated Michael O'Keefe (The Great Santini, Michael Clayton, Caddyshack), Catherine Dent (TV's The Shield, 21 Grams) and Sean Patrick Thomas (Save The Last Dance).


FINDING NEIGHBORS is a comedic drama about the relationships that develop between three sets of next-door neighbors as they explore creativity, aging, mortality, sexuality, and friendship.

Plot Outline

Finding Neighbors is a comedic drama about LA neighbors searching for true connection.
Six months late on a book delivery, once famous graphic novelist Sam Tucker has succumbed to a mid-life crisis. Instead of writing, he immerses himself in ice cream, television, and encounters with the provocative girl-next- door, Sherrie.

But it’s the unlikely friendship that Sam develops with another neighbor, Jeff, that finally begins to reconnect Sam with his creative thread… yet also unravels his home life.

As his wife Mary becomes suspicious about his mysterious metamorphosis, Sam may lose the one thing he has never doubted: his marriage.
