Director Biography - Greg Pursino

Grew up in East New York Brooklyn Housing Projects. Raised by my Grandmother with my 3 other brothers. We were poor and not able to have new things and clothes so we were a custom to hand me downs. This had us using our imagination to build things and able us to have a greater creativity. Even though I started getting into films later in life, I would think of those days which helped in film making. I had three Cable Shows that I created, Hosted and my film The Projectionist. I also write, direct, produce and help others with their film projects.

Director Statement

The Projectionist has some superb acting by all in the film. Even though this is only a short it took time to film. The airplane scene alone took weeks to film. The owner of the plane could only give us Wednesdays to shoot the scene. Well it rained 13 Wednesday's in a row before we could shoot. Needless to say other scenes had problems of their own. All and all it was a great experience and as long as I can I will make films.
