Back in the day (circa 2002), my firstborn son, Tim Rasmussen, and his writing partner, son-in-law Vince Di Meglio. transformed their small North Hollywood apartment into a movie studio and made a short film that caught the attention of the Sundance Festival, as well as the attention of Director Jay Roach, who hired them for a writing gig on the Meet the Fockers project (their second draft was the catalyst to move the project forward), and the rest is their own Hollywood history.

I noticed, on a personal Facebook pag , that Vince had recently uploaded a copy of the short film, “Fits & Starts,” onto the Vimeo platform.
I invite you to take approximately 12 minutes of your time and enjoy my boy’s creativity, of which I am proud.
The lead female role is my daughter, Stacie, was also the mother of my only grandchild.
The lead male role is my brother’s son, James, who brings the uniqueness of his own personal life to the screen.
There is another short film (circa 2003) , which also included James, called “El Elegante,” which Tim and Vince are currently transferring from 35mm film to digital for submission to upcoming film festivals, as they get back to their cinematic roots.
