Let me share with you guys a cool story. In the short period of time that I have been in the TV/Movie business (3 years), I have met or talked to everyone from JLo to DiCaprio. Not like OMG, Can I get your autograph....uhh....No.
About creating projects, Working together etc.
I have been fortunate enough to be mentored by my pal Antoni Corone. Partnered up with people like Barry Jay Minoff, Antoni Corone, Jorge Jokes Yanes and James Bishop.
Worked with some amazing people like Gennaro Pastore, Oscar Torre, Michael D Marino, Joseph Donofrio, Saul Stein, Elisabetta Fantone Cohen, London Grace, Jake Pappalardo, Michael Villar, Nick Vallelonga, Ronnie Marmo, Christopher DeFranco, Celine Alva, and this guy right here....
Needless to say there are countless other talented people that if I was to name them all would take all night.
But I digress.....
Thanks to Pat Andrew and company, In those 3 years I have landed a blockbuster televIsion deal and a pending first look deal with a major streaming platform and because of the efforts of my manager Diana Carter, several promising projects lined up in the near future.
This is the part here that if you were watching a movie wriiten with this story line we would all say, Pffff, That shit only happens in the movies. Its mind boggling to that it is me this is happening to.I have no clue how it has happened or why and it baffles me on almost a daily basis. One man stands out for me as we have grown very close.
In this pic is James Russo. It was taken a year ago and since then we have become very close.
Maybe its odd because neither of us ever get really close with to many people and yet here it is.
Myself and Russo talking at length about many things on a regular basis. Stranger still for me is this fact and the reason for this post.
When a guy like James, who has been working in hollywood for 40 yrs and close to 300 movies tells you and the end of the phone call just now that he wants to create a project from scratch with me, I mean, Me right? Like who in the hell am I in this entertainment world at this point. Im just a number 1 prospect at best in my eyes. So I ask him, Why me? You got the goods kid ...
