also has some theatrical experience in his background, including
stage managing, acting and set construction. He was also fortunate
to have had opportunities to direct, working at Summerfare (now
Musicalfare), Irish Classical Theatre Company, Bristol Valley
Playhouse in Naples, NY, and at other venues. Personal directorial
high points were his enterprises with actress Lisa Ludwig, during
which he directed her in a number of plays they produced together
as Freefall Productions. Foremost among these were Frankie and
Johnny in the Clair de Lune, night, Mother, and the astoundingly
successful Kathy and Mo Show.
So, predictably, Terry would now like to pursue filmmaking as
a creative medium. Previous attempts at making a short film have
revealed he needs more practice. But he hasn't given up, and his
current association with Emil and the Tesla project have renewed
Terry's optimism to create something at least audience-palatable
on video/celluloid. Because, damnit! home video technology has
gotten to the point that any filmmaker wanna-be has at least the
tools now to actually try-to-be what they wanna-be. And if it
turns out they suck at making films, well, alright, that's disappointing
but at least they'll find out a lot more cheaply and quickly working
with digital video than hassling with old school 16mm, 35mm or
even super 8!
Sorry, that slipped out. That was Terry giving himself a pep talk
because he's a big, fat-ass chicken.
He hasn't given up on making comic books, either.
