FAQ

When did you get started in filmmaking? 

I've been making short films and fashion films for 5 years now. I've been in video production for 10 years. 

Did you go to film school?

No, I didn't.  I learned through a lot of reading and gaining experience in all aspects of filmmaking on projects over the years. I  have a BA with a major in Sociology, whatever that's worth to ya!

I want to audition for a short film. How do I do that? 

It's pretty simple. Head over to my casting page and look for a project that seems interesting. I always post the full script so you can read the story before auditioning. Each specific casting call is a bit different, but I usually ask for a self-taped read of a scene. Sometimes just a headshot and resume works.  

What do you do with the short films and fashion films you make. Where do they get posted?

I submit my projects to film festivals. Sometimes they get in. Sometimes they don't. I also normally post finished work to this website for a period of time. Projects that tend to get better engagement stay up longer. I also typically post to Vimeo.com. I like to share framegrabs or short clips of projects to Instagram too. 

Do you pay actors or models? 

Normally, most of my projects are collabs. I very rarely have budget for anything other than food and gas. I do apply for grants, but they are pretty hard to come by. From time to time, I do commercial work - in those situations I pay talent as I'm getting paid. But for short films and fashion films, I always lose money. I do it for the joy of creation.

How many projects do you shoot in a year? 

I typically do about 4 short films per year and 8 to 10 fashion films. So if you didn't get the role you wanted this time, check back again in a few weeks. There's always another project on the horizon!

I noticed you seem to be mostly into romance themed films. Why is that? 

It's the genre I love most. I am constantly watching movies and reading novels that are romanced themed, so it tends to influence my filmmaking. Don't look to me for the next action flick!

How long are typical shoots? 

Fashion shoots are normally a couple hours. Short films are usually two or three days.
