Director Lincoln Ruchti, left, and producer Michael Verrechia, on the scene of Chasing Ghosts, a documentary on the American arcade phenomenon of the 1980s. The two met at the University of Florida, where they both aspired to become filmmakers. Recognizing the importance of business savvy in the filmmaking world, the 1999 graduates made a deal: Ruchti would go on to study film at graduate school, Verrechia would get business experience, and later, they would make a movie.
Their film will screen next week at the 10-day Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
