"Pete DeLorenzo’s excellent screenplay “The Mentor” is a welcome change from the meaningless violence and effects driven movies, which clutter the current cinema landscape. It speaks to all of us, including the somewhat cynical “Y Generation” in words and images, which have immediate recognition as ringing true. It has the power, not just to entertain, but also to motivate. Audiences will feel, not only is it well written and entertaining but it motivated them to think more deeply and perhaps actually to change their world for the better.
I’m really looking forward to directing this wonderful script."

"The Mentor" is a well crafted script. Its storyline flows along in a very uplifting and passionate fashion. Audiences will relate to the core message, that is, with heartfelt mentoring and hard work you can make your dream become a reality. As the story unfolds you see real people, in real life, dealing with real life problems, walking the walk, most importantly staying the course. Viewers will completely understand how difficult the road to success is. Peter DeLorenzo writes with a deep understanding of human nature. Peter's people are real, simply because he builds them from inside their hearts and minds. The viewer will see DeLorenzo's people and say "They are just like me." "The Mentor" is a feel good film, some will say "For me its an inspirational film and begs to be up on the big screen." "The Mentor" has legs."

This photo is just a sample of Sam Bassett's incredible work of catching Pete in action on the set
(Mr.DeLorenzo's Personal Photographer)
On May 2, 2004, Mr. DeLorenzo attended the New York Film Festival at the Village East, New York City for the screening of “The Search Of Mr. F.” a film of which Mr. DeLorenzo appeared in. Along the way in the process, Mr. DeLorenzo bumped into a photographer by the name of Sam Bassett who approached Mr. DeLorenzo and claimed he liked Pete’s fashion statement, recognized who he was and wanted to shoot someone famous to build up his portfolio. They both exchanged business cards and a few weeks later, Mr. Bassett contacted Mr. DeLorenzo and arranged to come out to Pete’s office and did a 6 hour pro-bono photo shoot, some 350 shots later that were absolutely phenomenal. Mr. DeLorenzo proclaimed that in his almost 40 years of show business he had never seen photography work such as Mr. Bassett’s.
Every photo that was shot was one better than the other; all shots were done in high definition, 3 dimensional and with extreme luminosity. Mr. Sam Bassett has magnificent control of light and what he does with his camera is equivalent to what George Harrison, Stevie Ray Vaughn, BB King, and Eric Clapton have done with a guitar.
It is for this reason that Mr. DeLorenzo has not only highly recommended his people to Mr. Bassett for any of their photographic needs but has also appointed Mr. Sam Bassett as his Personal Photographer and his Head Staff Photographer for all stills for the duration of Mr. DeLorenzo’s Major Motion Picture and Film Project, “The Mentor”.
Mr. Sam Bassett, we salute you and applaud and are very proud to have you on board of this project and for all future endeavors.
