There’s nothing like putting a film together in 11 days — the scrambling, chaos and excitement that ensues from working on a tight deadline. It all started with a call from Michael Moore’s producer.

“Can you be in Wilmington, Ohio next week?”

Let’s go to Mars – a Reflection on “Endings”

OK – in a very political cynical season, would you please take a moment to dream?

On October 11, 2016, as his days in office moved toward their end date, President Barak Obama issued an open letter that it’s time to go to Mars and time to reinvest in space exploration.  Taking an audacious leap into the future is commonplace for Presidents – real and fictional (I see you Leo McGarry) late in their second terms. But what can we learn from this?

First, its never too late to be ambitious.  Nestled in his letter is a realization that this goal builds on years of investment in basic scientific research and a push to increase competition in the aerospace industry.  What this says to me, and all of us, is that each day in our current job gives us the opportunity to leverage everything we’ve done so far.  And if you haven’t begun investing in your personal or professional future, today is the day to start.

Welcome to FCP, Erin!

Earlier this summer we welcomed Erin Ivie as a Senior Communications Counselor to the FCP team. Erin joins us after working for years as a breaking news reporter at the San Jose Mercury News, Oakland Tribune and Contra Costa Times; and consulting at public affairs and public relations firms in San Francisco.

We caught up with Erin to answer a few questions we didn’t quite get around to in her bio. You can also follow her on Twitter @erin_ivie or drop her a line at erin@fcpcommunications.com.

What do you bring that’s new to Full Court Press?
My reporter cap. The FCP team as a whole has strong journalistic instincts, but I bring something new in that I was once a working journalist. We like to throw the ol’ reporter cap back on my head and look at our work through that critical lens — nothing moves off our desks that wouldn’t work for me as a journalist.
