This was the first Schoolbreak Special I worked on. In fact, it was my first job working as part of a film crew. Dale White (1st AD and Producer) hired me away from my job as a public access producer for an Orange County cable company and I never looked back. Producers Brad Wigor and Joe Maurer were wonderful to work for and I learned a great deal from them. The story of a young student who contracts AIDS from a blood transfusion was a first and Danny Nucci was perfectly cast in the title role.
As I recall, it seems I worked around the clock as production coordinator but I would do it all again to make such a quality product. Maybe someday these lost treasures will be released on DVD or shown on television again. Their relevance may indeed stand the test of time.
Thank you Dale, Brad and Joe for giving me a chance and setting a course for me in this business.
