Q&A with Producer Kyle McGuiness
Today I had the honor of conducting a Q&A with our new in-house producer, Kyle McGuiness. Kyle has already made a major impact on set and around the office within his first few months of working with Good Brother. As the head of the Good Brother Fun Committee, Kyle has brought to life some epic after work get-togethers, including our very own Mac(allan)-and-cheese tasting party. We are so glad Kyle has joined the team, and can't wait to see the cool things he produces in the future!

Q&A with Kyle
Where are you from?
Beautiful New Jersey- the garden state.
Did you always know you wanted to be a producer?
No, I didn't. It's kind of something I fell into. I knew I wanted to be in production somehow, and kind of just followed the path and it got me here.
As recently elected head of the Good Brother fun committee, how do you plan on keeping the office fun every week?
Well, alcohol certainly helps. But I think the main thing is getting us out of the office and engaging and interacting with our neighborhood and our city by doing things none of us probably would be doing if we were alone.
If your life was a movie, what genre would it be who would write it, direct it, and what actor would play your character?
It would be a dramedy, because all lives have comedy and all lives have drama to them. I'd be played by Nick Jonas because strangers on the street always tell me I look like him... and he was also really good in Jumanji. The writer would be Ethan Russell and the director would be Jake Russell.
What was the last thing you watched on TV?
The season finale of Succession because it was an amazing show and like the best season of television I've seen in a really long time.
What fictional character is amazing in their book/movie/show but would be insufferable if you had to deal with them in everyday mundane situations?
Probably Harry Potter. Everyone would just get annoyed at him constantly winning at Quidditch or always doing the right thing. He's just too extra... I think that's the term kids use these days, right? Yeah, Harry Potter is too extra.
If you could only listen to one decade of music for the rest of your life what would it be and why?
The 90s. That 90s pop scene was legit, that KTU stuff. You had grunge which was cool. And that was also like the golden age of hip-hop. So I feel like the 90s represents the best of a few genres.
What would be the worst movie sequel ever made?
The Godfather 4, because it would be even worse than the Godfather 3 I imagine.
Would you rather have unlimited sushi or unlimited tacos for the rest of your life?
I would pick tacos. The reason being A sushi is trash, B if you do happen to like fish, which I don't, you can still have fish tacos. So you get the best of both worlds.
What's your real life superpower?
The ability to pump out great budgets on time.
