The premiere, organized by the talented Yuki Aiyama and Jeslie Chen, set the stage for a high-class affair.

Jack McCauley, the star of the documentary, maintained a private, humble and low-profile persona, which influenced the decision to host an invitation-only event. Migalchan explained, “Mr. McCauley is a very private person. He focuses on his craft, educates the younger generation, and values quality and privacy. Mr McCauley never wastes time, that is why to me it was even more special. In fact, right after our premiere Mr McCauley flew to Spain to give a speech and inspire more entrepreneurs and inventors”, he said. The private setting allowed for a more intimate experience, with the added bonus of Mr. McCauley’s family sharing stories around the fireplace after the screening.

The audience’s reactions during the premiere were overwhelmingly positive. Migalchan, who utilized Hollywood elements to make the documentary engaging, noted, “The audience kept their interest in the film from the beginning till the end.” Despite the documentary’s initial four-hour raw cut, which we had to bring to about 90 minutes, the audience remained captivated, underscoring the compelling nature of Jack McCauley’s life story. “The audience was hooked, and I’m not surprised. Mr. McCauley’s story is truly amazing and inspiring,” Migalchan said.

As for the global impact of the “Hidden Gem of the Silicon Valley,” Migalchan believes it goes beyond the renowned tech hub. “Silicon Valley is the center of the business world and tech, and it influences the whole world, just like Hollywood does for the world film industry,” he said. The documentary aims to inspire not only in terms of motivation but also determination and discipline—values that are universally applicable. “These characters, among all others, brought Mr. McCauley to where he is. Inspiration and motivation are like sparks. You need determined and disciplined work to maintain and grow the fire,” Migalchan added.

The film’s impact extends beyond business and tech, delving into the values of personal growth and building meaningful relationships. Migalchan believes the documentary will contribute to the broader conversation about technology, business, and, most importantly, being a good human being.

As for inspiring young minds, Migalchan shared, “This film gives a lot, including an understanding that you have to keep working and educating yourself in order to reach results as tactical and strategic moves. As for me I’ll keep magical and incredible memories of spending that filming week and learning from Mr McCauley. I believe that the harddrive which I saved with all original footage has more knowledge than the whole UC Berkeley.”

Beyond the premiere, the team is actively working on bringing the film to a wider audience. Plans for additional screenings and events are in progress, promising an opportunity for more individuals to experience the “Hidden Gem of the Silicon Valley.”
