Joseph Randazzo

As a young businessman Joseph had a goal to be a self-made millionaire by the time he turned 30 years old. By age 26 he had made over six million dollars in cash, real estate equity and other business transactions.

While in college, Joseph assisted his mother who owned a soup, salad and sandwich shop called, Subway. This was well before the successful chain we all know today. His mother suffered a severe heart attack and at 19 years old Joseph volunteered to take over the family business. Within two years he doubled the number of locations and tripled the profits. After training his brother to take over the business Joseph traveled to New York to study Directing and Production at the prestigious H.B Studios… he also studied with Sandy Meisner and Stella Adler.

If you were to go back and track Joseph's life from early on you will find he loves to excel. For instance in 1969 Joseph attended St. Irenaeus grammar School. The Frame of Hope Foundation had a contest through the entire United States of America challenging the schools and students to see who could sell the most candles for charity. The winning school and student would receive a prize - a new playground facility and the top selling student would receive John F. Kennedy's personal favorite gold PT-109 tie clasp. Eunice Shriver and Ted Kennedy awarded St. Irenaeus the new playground, and Joseph J. Randazzo the tie clasp as the top selling student in the USA.

Randazzo served as an assistant to one of the founding fathers of Hollywood, Edward R. Stavitsky. As a banker, financier, star maker and Hollywood-deal-doer, Stavitsky has had no equal. He was a principal force in the financing, production, and distribution of over 1,000 major motion pictures. Stavitsky and his partners founded Albert Barrett Stavitsky Studio and the world famous Bronston Studios in Madrid, Spain. Dr. Zhivago, Ben Hur, El Cid, King of Kings, and Circus World were all produced at Bronston.
Ed and legendary music man "Bumps" Blackwell started Entertainment Management International (EMI) and ushered in Rock 'N Roll with acts like The Beatles, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Mick Jagger and Janis Joplin.

Under the tutelage and association with the late Edward Stavitsky, Joseph assisted in and digested the deal points of some of Hollywood's most interesting film projects; Jaws I and II, Manchurian Candidate, The Sting, Close Encounters of a Third Kind, and many other Hollywood classics. Joseph has a keen sense of what it takes to produce a successful entertainment project and how to make sure the investors enjoy the lowest possible risk.
Joseph also understands the producer's side of the equation. Not only has he successfully helmed his own projects but he acted as a Producer's Representative from 1984 -1989. As a Producer's Rep he assisted producers in getting financing, consulted on projects, and participated as general management of motion pictures including their distribution deals. During this period he worked in all these capacities resulting in over 100 feature films. Joseph earned a reputation as a man of action; the philosophy being, a failure is not an option - I am not going away until this is right for everyone.

Joseph also produced and co-wrote the feature film Sword of Heaven; he produced and directed First Pilgrimage to India as well as producing and directing 78 episodes for the television show, Contactees. Joseph has always had a dream to run point on a major studio with a goal to up-lift the art and standard of greater film making to where he would hold the producers responsible for quality and content… and in return bring great wealth to all those who participate.
