“School of Idiots by Sheldon Mashugana” (EXCLUSIVE) Interview with Dean Morgan

Who is Dean Morgan?

I am an entrepreneur and Rabbi, I own  4 companies, Mashugana Production, I produce films including Sheldon Mashugana, and The Macher, Baby boomer buddies medical transport, Standard Medical Co-Op , healthcare company for everyone, and America’s Commercial Agency, we sell commercial insurance. I have 2 kids , Maura 29 and Sean 24 and my wife Danette for 33 years. I started acting in 1979, but didn’t start actually acting until 2011. My short film called School of Idiots has already 270 awards from filmfreeway. I mostly do comedy. I also am a writer, director producer and lead in all of my films. I live in Dallas Texas but originally from Chicago IL.

-What inspired you to become a filmmaker?

I was making my kids laugh all the time and one day I had a joke I was telling my friend from Chicago about Sheldon Mashugana, which came from a radio show in Chicago back in 1976. So I thought maybe I could create that character for real. Then I got with my manager and then my friend BJ and they did the shooting and editing and I did all the rest, including casting director.

-Do you think the cinema can bring a change in the society? 

As long as they can get rid of the politics we will be ok, I’m not effected myself, since I”m independent.

What would you change in the world? 

My healthcare company Standard Medical Co-Op, will change the way we do healthcare. It gets rid of the health insurance companies, and goes back to concierge medicine which is far better and cheaper.

-Where do you see the film industry going in the next 100 years?

Mostly digital, it’s getting more and more that way now, The independent producers like me will still do the small films. But the people with a lot more money will go more into digital or more special effects.
