Ronnie Flynn has 35+ years experience in financing major hollywood movies. As the founder of Vuuzle Media and it’s executive producer for film and television he’s got a lot of weight on his shoulders but you wouldn’t be able to tell that by the fun loving attitude he seems to carry all the time.
This year so far, he’s produced more than 300 television shows and 1 new mini TV series called The Portal where he also played a lead role in the new series as Malcom.
We interviewed this busy man to learn how he’s leading a diverse team of entrepreneurs remotely and transforming the film industry from Las Vegas all the way to Dubai.
What It Takes To Be A World Class Film Financier
Ronnie believes that success leaves clues and that in order to build world class businesses you must lead by example and create with the intent of serving others. He says that he loves creating opportunities for others, whether they are teammates or people in his network.
“There is a big difference between telling someone to do something and teaching them. My role has been to inspire others to make their dreams come true by believing in themselves enough to take the first step. My methods are simply to lead by example and allow others to emulate my success using compassion and understanding transparency and respect for mankind.”
Family Legacy Must Remain A Focus
Family is everything to Ronnie, and he especially leans on the support of his children to grow his companies. He says his sons have taken Vuuzle to the next level because they use their talents and skills to amplify the impact that the team can make a whole.
“My children support me in business. Especially my son Joshua Flynn plays an important role in Vuuzle TV as he sits on the board of directors and maintains the continuity of the marketing office in the Philippines.
For example, he has communicated and introduced to Vuuzle TV many investors who have invested millions of dollars as pioneer shareholders in the company. He also has innovated different ways to manage and get better results from our marketing campaigns”
Resilience Is Key
Like many successful entrepreneurs, Ronnie hasn’t had it easy. He had times he’s had to improvise and create value out of nothing. He shares advice to entrepreneurs on how to turn a challenging situation into gold from a past experience.
“Some of the most important lessons in life have been about timing, completion, and the construction of certain projects. What I learned is Murphy’s law is always in effect, because what can go wrong will go wrong at the worst time ever.”
Ronnie describes a particular experience during an international movie shoot where he had to really embody this very advice he often gives.
“I remember we had a shoot in Bucharest Romania that required a nice sunny day and the shot had to be finished on a certain day. On the day we needed to shoot the scene it was raining and cloudy. We could not get this shot nor did we have time to build a set inside.
I then took the risk of rewriting the scene using the rain as part of the backdrop like it was a dream in the movie and faded to black with an opening of the sun scene to finish the shot on time with a better ending. I learned no risk, no rewards.”
Ronnie continues to see rewards for dedication to his craft and encourages others to remember this is a differentiating factor that most will not supersede.
“The production company used me several times after that for many projects both for tv and commercials and live performances and concerts.”
