As you all know – well, if you don’t know, you know now, I am a HUGE advocate of self-producing and making your own dreams a reality. You don’t have to wait for the next gig, make your own next gig!
We recently shot our first webseries (The New Jack) pilot, with our production company, Mighty Tripod Productions, co-producing. Myself, and my wife/business partner were written into the webseries, for obvious reasons! We want to keep working! Creating something from the ground floor, and seeing things through to the end was exceedingly rewarding. We “got in the trenches” (hello, Ben) and made something happen!
Now, it was not easy. Not. At. All. And, being an actor and producer is HARD. It’s a real challenge to take off the producer hat while on set, so, if possible, get some back up, actors, so you can focus on “the acting” when it’s time.
We look forward to sharing more with you as we move forward with our series.
I would like to thank other self-starters for inspiring me: Angela DiMarco, Joey Johnson, Lisa Coronado, Ben Andrews, Todd Downing, Jessica Martin, and Wonder Russell, to name a few.
And, as always, big thanks to mom and dad for their constant and unfaltering support.
