Testimonials

“I loved working with Todd!  It’s great to work with director with such a singular focus and emotional connection with the material.  His total dedication to telling Pits’ story, and his appreciation for all that our service members go through and sacrifice for our country was remarkable, and made for a great shoot for me.”

Samuel L. Jackson

“Working with Todd was like working with a true friend, which he is.  He is  a director who knows what he wants, but wants you to discover it for yourself.  He treats his crew and talent with respect and humor. He knows his craft and knows how to hire people who know theirs..   It was a pleasure, particularly since this is a film that means a great deal to Todd and so many.  His passion and vision are the reason this film exists and why it is memorable and important.  Working on this film helped me remember all the vets from the VFW post in Naugatuck, Connecticut that I worked with 30 some odd years ago on Jackknife, helped me remember Bob Sewell, who i worked with and shared a house with in Norman Okla , who had come back from Vietnam missing his left leg and right forearm.  And it taught me that perseverance is what gets things done.”

Ed Harris

“You could feel the energy flowing forth from Todd’s soul verifying that this was indeed for him a destiny project; A magnificent, meant be, project guided by higher beings inspiring and surrounding us all. Many others also felt this way. Even though the drive and power of some plan that we were all part of drew us forth, Todd’s directorial energy remained light and joyous as his brilliance shared a cooperative bond feeding us all with enthusiasm.  I found Todd to be a magnificent writer and director  for me personally to fulfill the role of Alice Pitsenbarger.”

Diane Ladd

“Todd’s writing of “the last Full Measure was the first time a script brought me closer to the life of a soldiers service and return to a “normal ” life. His devotion to that personal experience of the world around, and within the man or woman themselves , was given the respect and clarity it deserves . Todd created the world , and calmly invited me in and was was devoted to bringing the story of these veterans who served in Vietnam out.”

John Savage

“The moment I met Todd we just clicked. I knew he was very grounded as a man yet deeply connected and passionate about the story he was telling. He understood it on so many levels but it was his humanity that allowed me to immediately trust him as a person and as a director.”
