No one will work harder on the set than Don. He’s a high energy, decisive, get things done kind of guy. He cares about every project he works on, treats people with respect, and uses all of the experience he’s amassed over the years to make wise decisions. I highly recommend him.
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!
