Robert Molloy sees similarities between Major League Baseball teams and movie productions.
“The actors are the ball players,” he said. “Production designers are like those who work in operations.” A director is akin to the manager, he added, crew is like the coaching staff, and an executive producer is parallel to a team owner.
Molloy, a 26-year-old lifelong Tampa resident, speaks from experience.
The live action independent film The Little Mermaid he produced through his Tampa-based Kingsway Productions will premiere today to a full house at Tampa Theatre. It opens nationwide Aug. 17.
