THINKING OF THE HOLIDAYS APPROACHING, AND BECOMING SENTIMENTAL OVER PAST MEMORIES WITH PEOPLE THAT I HOLD DEAR. SINCE I BROKE MY ARM A FEW WEEKS AGO, IT’S GIVEN ME SOME TIME TO REMINISCETHROUGH PAST WORKS. HERE’S A FUN HOLIDAY COMMERCIAL I DID A COUPLE YEARS AGO. WISHING YOU ALL A JOY FILLED SEASON.
*LOSS OF A DEAR FRIEND* JIM TROESH 1956-2011 Jim was a remarkable rare talent…but even larger than that, my friend. We were first introduced in his apartment, #222, the same room number my Mom said she stayed in when I was born. Jim was having new carpet replaced in his apartment & needed a few people to help with moving furniture around. Jim Metropole, Jim’s bestfriend, phoned me and asked if I would be available that day to assist…I said, sure. Since that day we developed a close friendship, and worked together on several film projects. Most notably THE HOLLYWOOD QUAD TV Pilot, where the scene in the video tribute below originated from. Click on link to see episode Jim wrote, directed, produced and starred in. Jim made a profound impact in my life by being an example of being extraordinary. I imagine he’s now running, riding horses & jumping out of planes!!! I am happy for him……cheers lover boy* See you over the rainbow!! Video by Ken Sheetz
