I’m now the Mayor of Brighton!

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

Well, thanks to Verizon, I’m now the Mayor of Brighton. Mayor Pete Schulz.jpg Brighton is a fictional town that Verizon ‘created’ to let people know what fabulous things Verizon Fios Fiber Optics did for Brighton…and what it can do for you. Crystal clear HDTV, super-fast internet service, superior phone service….and more. Over a period of two weeks, we shot a series of six ‘mini-movies’ (four to six minutes each) which will be distributed on DVD to over 10 million Verizon customers. They will also appear on the internet.

I had a great time shooting these ‘mini-movies’. The Verizon gang was great as was the advertising agency R/GA. Neil Tardio, Jr., the director, gave all of the actors terrific freedom to have fun, create, and make it our own.Neil and I in car 475X356.jpg

As Mayor of Brighton, I drove around in one of those new ‘Smart Cars’. It gets 70 miles to the gallon and can travel over 500 miles on one tank of gas. Holy Cow! I want one!!
