Lynne and I have a passion for the Truanik project and we are riding on the adrenaline of being a part of this. Recently, we had a conversation about how we both got started in the movie industry and it reminded me of how much I love what I do and why. I love to create things and make things out of nothing. Whether the project is a reality show, a comedy, a documentary, T.V. series , feature film or whatever, I love to read the idea and form the vision in my head and get it out on camera. It doesn’t matter if the project is low budget or a high budget, I can make anything out of nothing; success is all depends on how much you want it and how you can work with what you have. This industry definitely has its challenges and I can tell you that I have certainly faced many during my career, but it’s never the challenges that matter. It is getting through them. Getting through them often means relying on your team. When the team is right, the project is right. Nothing else matters. So, for example, even right now as Traunik is wrapping up the paperwork with investors, Lynne and I are grateful to have each other to have leaned on while getting through this phase and I know that our cast and crew will work together to create one killer comedy. This is why I am in the movie business.
