So, I met you this year and also collaborated on a film project with you for a short time, how is that going by the way?
Yes thank you for coming out and helping us with our project (Horizon). It's been going well, weve been working on this for nearly a year and a couple of months and started shooting it back in October up to late November. We are postponed due to the season change, now were waiting for spring to come so we can reshoot some scenes and get this project finished.
How Did you get your start?
My start in the digital media world began back in 2008. I was acting in a YouTube video with my close friends and talented, Joe Kennedy and video editor David Jewell. We worked on our first video which was supposed to be for fun, nothing too serious. We uploaded it and showed the video off around school and everyone enjoyed it. The people wanted more and that's when I thought our road had been laid out for us there. I then started taking video/audio classes back in my junior year in high school and now I'm doing freelance and getting myself into as many projects as I can.
What type of things do you like to do with film making and why?
Im all around when I'm in the development stages of a film. I've had to buy props, act, do voice overs, operate the camera, the list goes on. Im usually "The Camera Man" just because I love being behind the lens, and trying to get the best shots possible for each scene. We're a small team so when working on a video with such a small group you can find yourself entitled to multiple jobs.
Pick a genre (Action, Horror, Science fiction, Drama?) and why?
Sci-fi all the way. I remember when I was younger I'd watch Star Wars and Star Trek every night. I'm also a huge fan, and always will be of the Matrix trilogy. It not only was a good collection but it also pioneered slow motion in films. Sci-fi in my opinion takes a lot of creativity and each story has absolutely no boundaries so the story cans bend rules or make a turn at any point.
Who are some of your favorite filmmakers?
Some of my favorite film makers would have to be, Martin Scorsesee, Steven Spielberg and James Cameron.
If given the chance to make a bug budget film what type of film would you make and what actors would you cast?
Given the chance to make a big budget film I would shoot towards an foreign independent martial arts short. I've always enjoyed my share of martial arts movies growing up and I think it would be an good experience to film in a different country and work with different cultures.
What should the viewers know about you?
I think what every viewer should know about me is that I always try to keep myself surrounded by people that share common interest and are dedicated to the same subject as I am. That way we get projects done and have fun at the same time because it's something we all enjoy doing. A better work atmosphere equals better production.
Provide us some of your works?
