I have known Don Albert since 1989 and have been involved in numerous productions with him. He is scrupulously honest, industrious, humble, caring, thrifty, resourceful, loyal, patient, efficient and professional - traits which are in short supply in the feature film business. If you are looking for a producer, I can't think of a better pick than Don.


Don has produced and directed Everlasting Love for the past 12 years and has done a fabulous job! He is creative, efficient, and multi-skilled. He manages the crew and ensures that we have a top notch show!
