I have often spoken about my late night chats and Skype sessions with Farrell, the first person to hire me in TV and my friend 30+ years later. He lives in Kabul, Afghanistan where he’s running a TV station.
He’s quoted in the FRAPA newsletter. FRAPA is the Format Recognition and Protection Association. I have no idea what that means!
FARRELL MEISEL remembers a moment at MIPCOM last year. A distributor walked past him in the Palais and shouted, “Hey, Farrell, do you need a documentary about Afghanistan?” “No, thanks. I’m living one,” Meisel quipped.
Some day when he’s home I’ll have good stories to tell.
