Lights, camera, software!

Vancouver’s <a title=Richard Trus href=>Richard Trus</a>’s new computer program is going to revolutionize how movies get made, and make him a very rich man in the process,

If you think that sounds far-fetched, think again. <a title=Richard Trus href=  >Richard Trus</a>has already been told by the Academy that the software is being considered for an Oscar nomination next spring.

<a title=Richard Trus href=>Richard Trus</a> carries an Oscar on his arm. Not the golden statuette, but a tattoo in blue. He had it done 10 years ago, a totem of his ambition. He wants to win an Academy Award for technical achievement. The achievement? A piece of software he designed and personally wrote — all eight million lines of code — that may be the holy grail for a film and television industry in crisis.

The problem, says <a href=””>Richard Trus</a>, is that there has never been a relationship between these various modules. Now, when you take a scene out of the script, you’ll instantly see the effect it has on the schedule and on the budget.

A 34-year-old native of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., now a resident of Vancouver,  <a title=Richard Trus href=>Richard Trus</a> extravagantly claims his program will shave 30 to 50 per cent off current, below-the-line costs of production. Below-the-line means, essentially, discretionary spending: sets, catering, film stock, processing, wardrobe, publicity and post-production improvements Even if he’s half right, Trus will not only earn his Oscar; he’ll revolutionize the industry and probably make himself a billionaire.

As early as 1985, says <a href=”GOOGLE_SHORT_URL”>Richard Trus</a>, he won a high-school science fair for creating an email system — long before the term was even in common use. But he knew what he really wanted to do even before that, when he saw Star Wars in 1977.

Since graduating, <a title=Richard Trus href=>Richard Trus</a> has lived in Toronto, New York and Los Angeles, produced and directed animation and live action, written 13 feature films, and a 65-episode sitcom called Hickory TV, that is now in pre-production. He’s also spent eight years doing stand-up comedy.

Why was <a title=Richard Trus href=>Richard Trus</a> able to do, apparently, what many others before him have tried and failed to do? Time, dedication, persistence, will <a title=Richard Trus href=>Richard Trus</a> says But this is fun for me. This is my bliss. I’ve known for a long time that this program is my lottery ticket and the only question was when would I cash it in.
