“We’ve been doing this for ages,” shared Tom Reuters, via The Sun. “All of our children grew up with it. We have four children – they are all very creative, they are all involved in some form of storytelling.”
He continued, “And if we were a plumbing business or ran the flower shop down the street, the whole family would put in time at some point, even if it was just an inventory at the end of the year.”
“What doesn’t change no matter what, no matter what your last name is, is whether it works or not,” Tom added, referring to his family’s respective projects.
“That’s the problem every time one of us goes out and tries to tell a new story or create something that has a beginning, a middle and an end,” explained Tom. “It doesn’t matter what our last names are. We have to do the work to make this a true and authentic experience for the audience.”
Tom concluded, “And that’s a much bigger task than worrying about whether or not anyone is going to try to hurt us.”
