Bio – Tom More: Producer, Director
Tom More, Owner of RL Film Productions
Producer, Director, Cinematographer
Sometimes a hobby can predict a future vocation, although in Tom’s case it came with an 18 year military and defense contracting career in between. He first began film making in high school and college working with borrowed cameras to record bands, sporting events, club promos, and parody shorts. While in the Service he routinely had camera in hand while on deployments and exercises to share his adventures with family and friends in a way that words alone couldn’t capture. But the idea of video production as a full-time occupation didn’t come until layoffs threatened while working on defense contracts years later.
Self-employment as a producer and freelancer offered a much more creative outlet and the opportunity to steer his own ship, so he founded RL Film Productions to focus on commercial productions and marketing videos. Seeking to expand his artistic range and skills he began shooting short films, many of them winning awards as they traveled the indie film festival circuit.
Television was a logical progression from these forays, and now he has several series pilots to his credit as a producer, director, and cinematographer. He continues to pursue larger and larger projects with pre-production currently underway for a historical mini-series about the founding of the Texas Republic through its statehood.
In the meantime he and his wife continue daily life with their eight-year-old daughter who is clearly aware of the subtleties of dad’s business when this year’s Father’s Day card had a stick figure of him behind a camera yelling “Action!” with the subtitle “Give Tom $1,000.”
