“With the number of orders currently in the queue, the estimated time for delivery of new commissions is six years. […] Update: July 15, 2008 At this time, I have decided to close the order book to new clients for Richard Sachs Signature frames effective August 15, 2008.”—
Until now I’d sort of been quiet about what happened with Camille because I loved the idea of people making their own endings to our unusual story. Recently Cam talked to some Melbourne papers, so I thought I’d say a few words.
Camille is one of the most kind and amazing people I’ve come across in my lifetime. It’s sad things didn’t work out, but you can’t force these things, no matter what the circumstances. Despite that, the whole experience has been an incredible testiment to the universal nature of love. As lame and idealistic as it sounds, the world could use more stories like ours.
As far as a movie or anything being made about it, we talked to a lot of people but in the end decided against it. I wrote and illustrated a little book based on the events, but I haven’t decided what to do with it. I’m still really hesitant towards trying to capitalize off this event.
Thanks so much to everyone who has been emailing. It’s becoming easier and easier to contact people from all over the world. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Fuel your actions with love and you’d be amazed at what can happen.
