I have to admit, it has been a while since I really wanted to attach myself to the word CLEVELAND. It is not that I am ashamed of my city. It is just, being in show biz, others don’t understand how you can stay in Cleveland and even after many years, still see the potential of this place. I find, others are so eager to turn over the potential of the movie industry here to those from “Hollywood.”
I also found over the years, I have asked “Permission” and help from those who should support my goal in wanting sustainable productions in this city. After a wake up call, and meeting the right people who are connected, I finally decided to do what I have to do.
So no more talk about what others won’t or should do, and about how others are satisfied with the status quo here.
If anything the recent days has taught us, is that yes, it is going to be hard, but you can never count us out.
So finally, I’m proud to use and claim the title
CLEVELAND CINEMA CZAR.
