Write Now – Every Monday at 11:30 am (produced by Village Television)
Hosted by Video Club member Charlie Redner with co-host Judy Saxon, “Write Now” will interview Village Television staff producer David DeSantis for its May show.
Says David: “In addition to working for Village Television, I also play music and write songs. I’ve been written a few scripts as well. I always need to be doing something creative.” He is the owner and creative director of Big City Dreams Entertainment.
David attended audio engineering school as preparation for his work in TV production. Both his parents are musicians, and his mother owned a magazine for women in rock and roll. “I grew up in a musical family and it’s in my blood,” the young producer says. “I had the opportunity to meet a lot of musicians and people in the industry at a very early age, so I was exposed to a lot of different music and culture. Many people say I’m an ‘old soul.’”
At Village Television, David’s projects include, “Beyond the Red Carpet,” “Good Day, Orange County,” “Wellness in the Woods,” and “Food, Friends & Fun.” “I’m really excited about the future of Village Television,” he says, “and how we’ve stepped up the production value and continued to bring new and interesting content to the community.”
