This is great news Helen, you and the entire jump rope community have worked so hard to get this movie out into the main stream. I'm sure Oprah will be calling next. I'm getting my coat and gloves ready, it's cold in Chicago!!!

What was the song playing during the credits? Great movie by the way.

The final song is called WAITIN' and is performed by Chokolate. She is a new artist from Seattle -- hopefully we will hear more from her soon. I fell in love with that song immediately and am so glad it fit into the film.

We just this afternoon caught your act--JUMP!--on SHOW. It was very, very cool, and both my wife and I teared up with the kids in the competitions. You did a wonderful job, made a wonderful doc and represented the the kids wonderfully. We are only chagrined that we didn't pay $10 each to see the film. Seriously, congratulations. It was really moving and, I have to say, riveting. I still don't get those pass offs. My only criticism: I wanted to see more of those Japanese kids (OK, and the Swedes). I hope you feel proud, as you should. Alright, you didn't make any money--welcome to the arts. Love, and do more!

Hello! My son and I have just finished watching your wonderful film on Showtime, and WOW, was it great and inspiring and amazing! Thanks so much for all the hard work - I'm just a mom in Illinois, but I am so very impressed with these kids and how this sport has touched so many folks. It's really literally saved lives! So thanks again and again!

My boys and I were just channel surfing, ready for a boring morning of Saturday TV, CNN, cartoons and VH-1 reruns.

We happenned to flick on TMC-W and saw Jump!. At first my three teenage boys told me to turn. I didn't. What a great film/documentary. We had no idea what was going on in the world of jumping. Those athletes impressed the hell out of us. We saw stuff we never ever have seen before. Whoever says that jumping is not a sport or that they are not true athletes, are mentally challenged to put it nicely. We loved this film, well written and produced and I wanted to crack a tear at the end when we won those big events at the Worlds. Mrs. Helen Hood Sheer captured the emotion of a little known sport and it came across very well. Props to her and Scott Morgan. Can't wait to see her/their next production.

Take care and God Bless!
