By: Eye on Excellence Productions
Dr. Tavernaro is an avid life-long learner and currently holds two earned doctorates (a PhD in Psychology and an EdD in Educational Leadership). A frequent traveler, he has visited five continents and over 40 countries. His love of travel led him to open his own travel agency (I Dream Travel), which he continues to own and operate. He tends to view his travel not just as “sight-seeing”
In 2010, Dr .Tavernaro decided to explore an industry which had always fascinated him – the entertainment industry. He took a featured role in the film “Fast 5” and was hooked. Since then, he has worked on over 50 different projects in film, television and internet/new media as an actor, director, producer and technical advisor. In 2011, Dr. Tavernaro met Robert Kelly, and the two quickly developed a fast friendship that blossomed into a solid business partnership. Dr. Tavernaro now serves as the President of Long Shot Productions, Ltd., along with his other ventures.
As President and CFO of Long Shot Productions, Dr. Tavernaro is currently producing the first of a trilogy of feature films – “Mouthpiece”
The second film, “The Counselor” follows the life of the main character “Jack” as he moves up from representing the street walkers and begins dealing with the “professional criminal” element in Atlanta – participating in some of the highest profile criminal cases in Atlanta at the time. The third film, “The Commission”, delves into the working of the Hooker Commission, a group of five women who were elected by the other hookers to “run” the streets. The commission determined who could work what street corner, who could wear what costume, and established rules for proper conduct by the hookers of Atlanta. Broken rules were dealt with harshly by the commission’s enforcers.
The future goals of Long Shot Productions, Ltd. include developing a long-term relationship with individuals and companies in all areas of filmmaking, including investors, crew and cast. By developing these long-term relationships, the company will be able to create an established “package” to provide to potential new film projects. By creating this established production team, Long Shot Productions can seek new scripts and produce them in-house, or become a point of contact for outside projects coming into the state of Georgia.
