Conversations with inspiring random acquaintances

Episode 35: Frank the independent filmmaker

Episode 35: Frank the independent filmmaker

Frank G. Caruso is memorable. He lights up a room with his quick wit and his mind, in all appearances, seems to be running at more than twice normal speed. His exuberant personality and made-for-radio voice draw you in, even in a noisy, neighborhood coffee shop. What amazed me during our conversation is the subtle ways his creative ideas are born and how he carries and nurtures them until their time arrives.

Our conversation explores:

  • ‘Going Great White’, Frank’s mockumentary about pyramid marketing (super hilarious)
  • ‘This is my Sister’, a documentary about growing up with Downs’ Syndrome in the 1950s
  • Other projects in the process
  • Parenting
  • Dense bones (yes, really)
  • Growing up in upstate New York
  • Relocating to Chicago, then California and finally Wisconsin

Where to find him:

Looking forward to doing something like this again…

I would love to tell you things!

...sorry to offend you with a pop-up, but, if you've heard me on Glistening Particles, you know I love to get to know people! If you share your email address with me, I can let you know what's coming up [there are so many new things in the works!!] andddd let you know when and where I'll be out in the world gathering stories...by talking with strangers...because it's what I do! And if you sign up we'll be more than strangers - more like random acquaintances! That's awesome!
