So Ted asked me to come by and visit Redcamp last week. I brought my 5 year old son so he can continue to be inspired by the industry we work in and while I was walking through the backlot with Ted we ran into Desi Arnaz, Jr. He was there shooting something but took the time to chit chat with Ted and I about a lot of his personal memories of being on the lot back in the day. It was particularly nice for my son because he recalled being my sons age/ size when his parents acquired the stages and harkened back to his early days, " running around the lot" and playing and having a great time. He pointed out where his dad's office was and told us stories about this and that show being shot there and people coming in and out. It was like the buildings and common areas were coming alive, you could just picture these people walking by where we were standing. It was quite a moment and I wanted to publically thank Ted for including me and my son in that moment. As a child of the 60's the amount of content that came out of that block of hollywood certainly influenced me in a significant way and it was a dream come true to actually physically connect with that time and those people through Desi and his stories.
If you ever get a chance to go to RSH, do it, but make sure you google all the shows that were made there so you can truly appreciate the history.
Thank you Jim for buying RSH and Ted for having us there.
