From Robert: 

My fellow producer and the writer of Cash for Gold, Deborah Puette, brought me this script back in the summer of 2011, and I immediately saw in it a story I could care about. While this is my first film as a director, I have produced many films, often simply for the excitement of camaraderie and the challenge of the production. Cash for Gold was something different. The story moved my heart, and I wanted to share it with as many people as possible.  If as a society we are to truly reach our highest potential, we must look beyond our differences to see the good in each other, our shared struggles and the ways we can help each other. With Cash for Gold, I like to think we're putting something into the world that lifts us all up, even by a little bit, even for a few moments at a time. I hope you enjoy our film and take something from it, just as I did and continue to do.

From Deborah:  

I knew I wanted to write a story about unlikely allies, about two seemingly very different people who deeply affect the other's life in a matter of minutes. It's a chance encounter that neither of them will ever forget. That intrigued me. I'm so very grateful to Robert for seeing the potential in the script, for protecting it ferociously during the journey from page to screen and for being the most collaborative, supportive partner I can imagine. I'm so excited to share Cash for Gold with the world.
