Bill Cole In Film
Bill Cole is the Consulting Producer of a new Hollywood film,
"I first met Bill Cole when I was the
field producer for The Animal Planet TV series "Weird,
True & Freaky" (42 episodes), and associate producer
(8 episodes) and I needed a subject matter expert for on-air
commentary and analysis. Bill was amazing. He had a huge
depth of knowledge in sports psychology and could easily
explain very complex material in understandable ways the
viewer could instantly "get". Bill can really tell a story
and be engaging. We stayed in touch, and when I began work
on my film The High, I called Bill and we
engaged again, this time with him being Consulting Producer.
Bill has been a big supporter, and he has lent his expertise
to the project as a producer by providing ideas for the
story line, subjects to cover, being a sounding board, suggesting
questions to ask the runners, etc. In short, he was a vital
part of the film, and a pleasure to work with. If you have
a TV or film project, and you need a subject matter expert
who can also produce, Bill is your man."
Coach Bill I can't thank you enough for how you've helped me in my life, my business and with the TV show. You have that amazing blend of performance psychology, life experience, business smarts, and a background in film and television that has taken everything I do to the next level.
