I Am Big Bird: Review by Jeni Rizio

It is hard to say what hasn't already been said, so I will try my best.

Let me begin by telling you that, on a scale of one to five stars, I Am Big Bird is off the charts. Library of Congress Living Legend Caroll Spinney deserves all the best and more in a tribute, and Copper Pot Pictures delivers.

The love between Caroll and his soulmate Debi radiates throughout the film, as well as his love for his friends and family. Caroll demonstrates pure love, as a humanitarian and as a human being. He is as real and down-to-earth as it gets. Caroll sets the example of how people should treat others: with dignity, honesty and respect. 

Caroll has experienced a lifetime of challenges; this Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award winner demonstrates how he pushed on through them with his resilient perseverance.

Go see this film to be moved, awed and inspired.

A long overdue update.

Hey everybody!

I am sorry I have been out of the loop with posting updates. Life circumstances (health related) have prevented me (Jeni) from taking a more active role in promoting I AM BIG BIRD. However, I am happy to say that the film has been incredibly well received by the fan community, and I am not surprised one bit. I am overjoyed at the standing ovations I have seen captured online on Copper Pot Pictures' Facebook and Twitter feeds. Caroll and Debi deserve nothing less. I am truly blessed to call them friends and to have helped out with the Kickstarter campaign to make this film a reality.

Speaking of Facebook and Twitter, please be sure to "like" the official I AM BIG BIRD Facebook page:
