Tango's Movie Industry involvement began when he received a minor role in “30,000 Leagues Under The Sea”. He was aware that Sean Lawlor (from the film “Braveheart”) was cast in the role of “Captain Nemo” and he never expected that a genuine friendship would develop by just working with Sean Lawlor. Sean and Tango's bond has become one of both best friends and business partners. Tango became partners with the late Sean Lawlor (whom he refers to as his mentor and the father he never had) on a variety of feature film scripts, some are true drama, some are Disney-like, and all were brilliantly written. The first film production that will be developed is, “Healing Frequencies” with John Savage and Louis Gossett, Jr. , interested. Sadly, Tango’s friend and mentor, Sean Lawlor, who was scheduled to direct and star in the movie, passed away in Dublin, Ireland following a short illness. Plans to continue moving forward with Sean Lawlor’s vision fully incorporated into the project, with our Movie Production Department, remains on target.
