Thomas has been making short films since the early 1980’s.
An EMMY award winning producer and 3-time EMMY nominated director, Thomas brings a deep toolbox to every project he’s involved in. “I’ve been at this for a long time and the joy of pulling all the opposing forces together to make a coherent film is extremely gratifying.
This film is a tribute to everyone who pursues their passion no matter how high the odds are stacked up against them.”

Director Statement

“Normally, I don’t choose subjects that I know a lot about or have a strong connection with because I am forced to examine the subject without bias and approach it with a healthy dose of naivety.
In this case, knowing a lot about the subject was crucial because the subtleties of DJ culture can be easily misrepresented or batted-foul quite easily. As a vinyl record collector, bedroom DJ, and lover of many styles of music, my conversation with this subject was informed in a way that allowed the film to be legit with several audiences, including DJ culture.”
