Welcome to Loose Gravel Films. My name is Andrew Lilley and I am a filmmaker. My mission as a filmmaker is to bring stories to life on film so they may continue to live on generation after generation. There is a reason certain stories do not simply fade away into obscurity. Perhaps they say something about the human condition, and no matter what decade or century the story takes place, they will always speak to us on a very personal level.
I appeared on the nationally televised TV show ‘CBS THIS MORNING’ that was broadcast Thursday morning (February 6th) at 8:15 am.

During the World Series of 1926, one of the most enduring legends occurred that has been shrouded in mystique for almost a century. Babe Ruth, at the height of his popularity, promised to hit a home run during Game 4 for an ailing boy in New Jersey named Johnny Sylvester. Ruth delivered on his promise, and one of the most famous human-interest stories was given life. To this day, the story of Babe and Johnny has reached mythic proportions in America’s popular culture. Johnny Sylvester was my great-uncle, and my documentary is the first one ever made on this special story. Through rare interviews with Johnny himself and people familiar with the events, this film will shed light on the promise that became a legend.
‘I’ll Knock a Homer for You’ was shown at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. It was part of the 2013 Baseball Film Festival held on Sunday, September 29th at 10 AM. The screening was a success and packed to capacity.
The 2013 Garden State Film Festival was also a blast. The World Premiere in Asbury Park on Sunday April 7th, 2013 was well attended, and ‘I’ll Knock a Homer for You’ has won the ‘Home Grown Documentary Feature Award’ at the Garden State Film Festival.
I was recently interviewed by John Montone of 1010 WINS. The segment aired during the morning commute (twice every hour from 5:00am – 10:00am) on Friday, November 1st. There are 3 different interview segments. Take a listen:
My film is also highlighted in the October Edition of Weird NJ in which I wrote a feature article on it. Check it out!
