Fast forward a couple of years, and BAM! There he was, a greasy-faced teenager with braces, working on the movies on the big screen! Well, it was a movie theater usher, but it counted for that young man. After a few years of selling popcorn, sweeping the floors, and four years in high school (that’s the normal amount, I checked), Tommy graduated.
He debated going to college because he and the books didn’t get along. Then he found something! Something special! Something so unreal it couldn’t be real! A film school! A school for special children just like him! He graduated with a bachelor’s degree (first of his name, a thank you) and immediately drove to the only place he could think of that is known for making movies. Van Nuys, California. He couldn’t afford Hollywood (it’s basically Hollywood-adjacent, quit being judgemental!).
After six years of working on nonunion commercials and music videos, he finally caught his big break. He got into the local union! He has since worked on such projects as Curb Your Enthusiasm, How to Get Away With Murder, Annabelle, and The Staircase. There are many more, trust me, he’s legit. For 12 years, he perfected his craft and love for film. Then in 2020 (not sure if you know this or not), COVID happened.
