Tom Henry is an actor, independent filmmaker, owner of the production company Dragon Films, a Telly Award winner, martial arts expert, choreographer and all-around great guy. He's currently in pre-production for his next feature, the thriller, Deadly Retribution.

I See You Awards® Founder Terri Lee Chandler interviewed Henry for her weekly segment on WWJ Newsradio 950. They talked about his career, his upcoming feature, the thriller Deadly Retribution, his decision to cast Terri in the movie, the state of independent film in Michigan, and of course, his love and appreciation of the I See You Awards!

While only a three-minute segment of their interview could be broadcast on radio, due to time constraints, their entire conversation can be heard on Terri's podcast, Terri Talks Movies.
