CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — A Chesterfield native’s short film is going viral online. Jamie Brindle, a Manchester High School and James Madison University graduate, released The Catcher on May 11.
Set in 1930’s Japan, it is based on the true story of professional baseball player-turned World War II spy, Moe Berg. Whenever President Roosevelt would be briefed on Moe’s actions, he would always respond with, “Send my regards to the Catcher.”
Brindle, a standup comedy producer and short film director/producer who now lives in Los Angeles, says Richmond is never too far away.
“I wear my RVA hat every day that I’m on a set to remind me I’m playing for the home team.”
In the first 24 hours following its release, The Catcher received 3,000 views on Vimeo. You can watch it here.
