One of the many challenges of the film industry is choosing who you want to work with. Department heads define not just the quality of the work, but the working environment as well. With that in mind here’s a little bit about me:
I’m a nice guy. For better or worse, I’m not a yeller. That doesn’t mean I’m a pushover it just means I set the tone on set, and on my set the tone is mellow.
I’m a collaborator, not a yes-man. I want to understand the story you are telling so it can become the story we are telling. I want us to surprise each other and create something greater than the sum of its parts.
I’m hungry. That’s why I shot my first feature at 20, and why I got my first Emmy nomination only 3 years out of college. I intend to have an ASC next to my name sooner than later, and I expect my work and the work of my collaborators to reflect that same hunger.
I’m an idealist. I believe film can create transformative experiences, giving people an opportunity to see the world from new perspectives. That is why I’m doing this crazy thing, working the hours I work; I want to help this world along.
Give me a call. I like coffee in the morning or in the evening for that matter, and I’d be happy to meet anytime to discuss your production and how we can work together.
