“We had a scene where our mayor meets at Massimo,” Michaels said. “The real mayor would do press conferences there so our fictional characters did a press conference there.”Owner of Massimo da Milano Tony DiIorio, sponsor of “Out of Darkness” and Cleveland Film Czar Alex Michaels.

It is an easy decision, however, for Alex Michaels, owner of Prelude2Cinema, a movie and marketing company that makes and distributes movies in theaters and on Amazon Streaming. He said he was with Goldstein before he moved to the LaunchHouse location to Lee Road. “I like Todd Goldstein. He’s been the driving force. They were going to tear that building down five years ago, and now they want to kick him to the curb. “The best part of LaunchHouse is that they help so many different types of businesses. You can always just go down the hall and somebody is willing to help you out. It’s not like anybody is competitive here,” Michaels said. “I’m going with LaunchHouse. You can get space anywhere, but you can’t find a community like this. It’s invaluable.”
