New Writer Don Wilhelm
6 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

New writer Don Wilhelm has put together a great "product" Understand he has already been asked to work on a number of new projects. Keep your eyes open for his future successes. Although his initial work has been involved with the Baliwood scene, the quality of his work would serve him well in any form/location of entertainment. There are stories about his interfaces with the performers during the filming of Desperate Endeavors, and they are all positive. His capability to lead the cast through the difficulties of the New York City interface were evident. The actors came to him often to see if they were performing in their roles as he formulated that they should when he wrote the script for the movie. All of us can relive the early 70s and identify with the star of the film as he goes through the trials and tribulations that he must endure. The trailer is well worth watching, and I am looking forward to seeing the film when it comes out.
