Film Community Has Been Challenged

So in the last week, everyone has being doing the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also know as Lou Gehrig's disease. After being challenged by KEYE TV's Sports Director, Bob Ballou, I accepted the challenge.

I now challenge 3 people in Austin's film community and I would like them to do it on live television on Friday on our lifestyle show, We Are Austin at 9am. First, I challenge Tim League, CEO and founder of the Alamo Drafthouse Theaters. Second, I challenge Rebecca Campbell, Executive Director of the Austin Film Society. Last, but certainly not least, I implore Director Richard Linklater to take the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The fun of this is once you have done it, you can challenge 3 more people and you can do it right here at our KEYE TV studios! Also, don't forget to donate at and if you want your funds to help people in Texas instead, donate to the Texas Chapter at

Thank you Tim, Rebecca, and Richard for your consideration. I hope you take my challenge!
