Welcome to episode #45 “Foundation of Love”. In this episode I interview Drue Metz. Drue is an award-winning writer, film director, and mental health advocate. He believes in the power of words, cinema, and that love can change the world.
Drue grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and lived in 10 homes before 10 years old. He wasn’t good at school because family finances kept them moving around a lot. He was a poor kid with ADHD and dyslexia and loving parents but no stability. He sought refuge in creative writing, film and television. He got the ‘film bug’ at age 9 when he stole his mother’s Hi-8 Video Camera and made his very first film.
He is now living in Los Angeles and has written, directed, produced, shot or contributed to over 70 film and video productions.
Drue talks with us about his story, his conflictual relationship with his dad for a large part of his life, and how love has changed everything. His entire platform in life is to have a foundation of love. He is insightful and honest, and I totally appreciate his vulnerability.
