I love stories and storytelling. I’ve known since I was 8 or 9 years old that storytelling would be my life. And it has. For most of my working life, I’ve been paid to create stories. And when I’m not doing it for pay, I’m doing it for love. The great storyteller Ray Bradbury (whose home of […]

We would not be true to our GameChangers charter if we didn’t change our own game. Truth be told, we do it a lot. We’ve been changing our game from the get-go. What we do today is a lot different than what we did when we launched the company in 2007-8. This next gamechange will […]

In Part One of this post, we shared an observation made in 1982 by the actor Barnard Hughes, on the set of the motion picture, Tron, that in the digital world, everything is remembered, nothing is forgotten.

My first job in the entertainment business was working on the feature film, Tron, as its publicist and author of the book The Art of Tron. It was a gamechanging experience for many reasons. This is about one of those reasons. One of my responsibilities was to interview the stars of the film for feature […]
