Q & A SESSION WITH FILMMAKER RICH GOLD
In the Footsteps of Willie Sutton is Rich Gold's first documentary  film project as producer/director.  After taking early retirement from the corporate world in 2008,  Rich's ambition led him back to an area he studied some years  earlier, screenplay writing. Fueled with a fascination for true crime films, Rich wrote his first screenplay, Gallo, based on the true story of mobster Joey Gallo. Midway working on his second screenplay, The Gentleman Bandit, about bank robber Willie Sutton, Rich felt compelled to try his hand at producing a documentary film about Sutton. His possession of natural investigative skills results in Rich finding people in addition to materials that can undoubtedly add  value to a documentary film project. Determined to help others searching for authenticity in their works, Rich offers his historical  and biographical research services to other filmmakers.  After catching the bug for documentary filmmaking, Rich has a  continuous thirst for knowledge. This newly discovered passion  will undoubtedly bring more exciting projects from him.
