Ricky Staub — Everyone Deserves a Second Chance

Ricky Staub — Everyone Deserves a Second Chance

In this episode, I chat with filmmaker and creative genius, Ricky Staub.&nbsp;Ricky is an accomplished filmmaker. By his mid-twenties, he was living the dream! Well, the dream for some, anyway. He was an&nbsp;assistant producer for Sam Mercer, who co-produced most of M. Night Shyamalan’s films. While in Philadelphia&nbsp;working on Shyamalan’s film&nbsp;<em>The Last Airbender</em>, he met a man that changed his life and the course of his career. Ricky started a film company that has made world class content for companies like Google, Nike, Coca-Cola, Jeep, Reebok, NBC, Universal, and the&nbsp;Philadelphia Eagles. He loves his work but his favorite part about&nbsp;what they do is their desire to help&nbsp;formally&nbsp;imprisoned men make a living and a life&nbsp;again. They have&nbsp;created a&nbsp;unique program for doing this. You’re&nbsp;going to learn a ton from our talk and I know you’ll love Ricky and his heart to love and help these men. Get ready! This is a good one.&nbsp;&nbsp;To learn more about&nbsp;Ricky and&nbsp;Neighborhood Film Company, check them out <a href="http://neighborhoodfilmcompany.com/" target="_blank">online</a> and on&nbsp;their&nbsp;<a href="https://www.instagram.com/neighborhoodfilm/?hl=en" target="_blank">Instagram</a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://twitter.com/nfco__?lang=en" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="https://www.facebook.com/neighborhoodfilmcompany/" target="_blank">Facebook</a>.
