“Spare Room” Movie Trailer

So last year I got to work on a few projects out in Los Angeles, California. I had just finished 2nd AD’ing one project flew back to the East Coast and received a call for another project in LA like a week later and flew back out for a special project called “Spare Room.”

A friend of mine suggested me for the gig, which I am forever grateful for. I talked with the Producer and the Director and it was a good fit, so we moved forward. 

You know I’ve been working in the film industry for a little while now and I always tend to have low expectations about everything just so I don’t get my heart-broken. But it turns out this project was one of my favorite projects to work on. Even though it was only 10 days, we shot with two cameras the whole time. This is my second feature film that I shot with two cameras. I wouldn’t suggest for everybody but if you as an AD, Director or Producer could handle mentally, it really cuts down your days when shooting a movie.

The Director, Jenica, Cast and crew were also a joy to be around. 97% of the time when you crew up for a project you don’t know everyone and how they will act. And sometimes you get a minor bump in the road. We had a bump for a hot second but we got rid of that bump and it was smooth sailing from there on out. I think sometimes people take for granted what we actually do for a living. I get to travel the US, hopefully international soon and work with creative people from all over and make movies. I used to work in Human Resources before I went to Full Sail University. Everyday I’m on set, I say a thank you to the most high and I never take it for granted. I think some people forget that.

That’s a wrap on “Terror Road”

I just wrapped a fun project with a good group of filmmakers in Orlando, FL. I didn’t think this project was gonna happen because of the crazy weather that has been hitting the east coast but the weather Gods really looked out for us and spared us the hard parts of the storm.

Stay tuned for more info from this project.

“Parallel Chords” Funding Campaign

Hey Family and Friends!! The feature film “Parallel Chords” is looking for at least 500 followers for the #hometownheroes National Campaign that focuses on utilizing local resources, and supporting diversity in front of and behind the scenes!

Please go to the link below. Please create an account and follow us. The funding is optional though GREATLY appreciated!

Why do free follows matter?
In this contest if we hit a certain number of follows, Seed & Spark will consider releasing their own funds to support some films.
Why is now important? We have many days left!
The sooner we do well, the sooner we are bumped to the top of the page, with more traffic. And like a house on the market – there is perceived value added to projects that start strong (or at this point – climb steadily).

WE NEED YOUR HELP!! SO PLEASE HELP!!! LOVE YOU!
