Producer and Actor/Marty McFly
I’ve always loved film. Watching it, creating it, getting friends to help make it with me. “Back to the Future?” is the perfect example of me telling my 12 year old self that dreams really do come true. I fell in love with the trilogy at 12. I used to wonder what kind of person I would be when I was 32 because I knew that was the age I would be when Marty and Doc went to the future. I was lucky enough to get a lot of help from a lot of people to help make this final product possible. Although there were many people that didn’t think it could be done, my coproducer Jen Floor Mathews never doubted it for a second. She was the driver that kept this dream alive.
