“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 “Tybee”

So I behind on my blogs but I’m gonna catch up soon. Anyway, I don’t get to do short films 14470613_1351220158236303_2292876823851120608_nthat much anymore because they aren’t usually funded but every now and then I get one that comes across the desk and I get to work on one. This one I got to work on was called “Tybee” shot in Tybee Island, GA and directed by Jonathan Yoho.

It was a fun and ambitious story about a young man following the footsteps of his father against the concerns of his grandparents because it didn’t end well for him. And sometimes you have to learn your lessons the hard way.

We had a fun 3 days filming on Tybee Island. The dailies I saw looked incredible. The project probably won’t have a public viewing for a while. Jonathan was telling me his plans to have this film on the festival circuit.

Until next time! Be blessed! #MakeMovies and check out some BTS pics below.
