Tony Winters 2d · My heart is heavy right now. I just learned of the passing of my young friend, screenwriter/director Jake Bistrong. A couple of years ago I had taken a part time position at a magical Hollywood piano bar called #TrampStampGrannys. I’ve had only a few “square” gigs in my life, outside of acting, that I actually enjoyed. Tramp Stamp was one of them. I met so many wonderfully talented young people there and Jake was one of them. He would often tell me about a screenplay he was writing, based on his experiences riding the Los Angeles Red Line subway, and promised there would be a role for me. He was really excited about it. After several months, he finally completed the screenplay and had even raised the funds to produce the short film! He shared with me that he was now looking for a director. “Looking for a director?!” I said incredulously. “You envisioned it. You wrote it. You raised the money to produce it. And now you’re going to hand it over to another guy who might get it wrong and/or take all the credit?! Dude, direct it YOURSELF!” Well, fast forward to last winter, I got a call from Jake. He was going into production as the screenwriter/producer and DIRECTOR of RED LINE and was casting me as the character “Onsar” — a homeless man living on the Red Line platforms. I was so proud of him. It was a joy to see him in the director’s chair calling the shots — literally. Long story longer, I got my 2020 Screen Actors Guild Earnings Statement a couple of months ago I smiled when I saw Red Line Productions listed amongst my employers.￼￼ it would have been so much easier and far less expensive to produce it non union. I called Jake to tell him how proud I was of him for having made a film, a SAG film, in the middle of a pandemic, no less! COVID protocols and all. He did it right. He did it according to Hoyle. He thanked me profusely for having encouraged him￼￼ to direct. That could not have been much more than a month ago. I had no idea that would be the last time we’d speak. He earned his wings two days ago. I’m so thankful I made that call. I’m thankful that our paths crossed, ever so briefly, while you were of this earth.￼ I’m happy to have been a small part of your journey. Gone far too soon at just 27. Rest in heaven, Jake Bistrong.

I’m so sorry for the loss of your friend! It always seems to hurt a little bit more when we lose a young loved one. You made an impact on him and he on you, but his talents were needed elsewhere. Red Line will be released as planned.
Sorry for you loss. How wonderful that you were placed in his life to encourage him. It’s a reminder not to take any person / moment for granted.
