Local film investor follows new teenage comedy to Sundance

“When I first decided to invest in making the movie,” says Gary Nelson, of the feature film “First Girl I Loved,” “my wife said, ‘Gary, you know what investing in films is like. You might as well take that money and put it on a street corner for someone to stumble over, somebody who’ll end up getting a lot more out of it than you will.’”

Laughing, Nelson adds, “But I was very impressed with these young filmmakers, so I went ahead and said yes. And I think I made the right decision. Even if I don’t get my investment back, I’m just happy to have helped out some very talented and deserving artists.”

Less than a year later, Nelson’s hunch appears to have been a very good one.
