BILLY MAHONEY goes to New Smyrna
This is Dan Iosue. If it weren't for him and his hospitality, this episode wouldn't have been done. He and I were good friends at the time we shot this episode. We met at a business meeting for Lemo USA back in '99. We became friends. Around a year later I went to Florida for some time off and I asked Dan if I could bring the camera and I'm sure he suggested we do some "Billy Mahoney" stuff while I was there. I was all for it. Dan became a fan of "Billy Mahoney" when I showed him the first episode. It was destined to happen. Not to mention, his friends were totally game with the idea. And it totally worked. We gave each other a motive and let the characters come to life. That weekend was so fun, I got to stay in Dan's little apartment on the ocean strip, run on the beach and breath the clean air.
