First Look of “Parallel Chords”

Hey everyone! “Parallel Chords” will be showing at the STL Filmmakers Showcase at Washington University in St. Louis on Friday, 7/20/2018. If you are in St. Louis or surrounding areas please go check this awesome film out!

Here is a quick look of the film “Parallel Chords”. This music driven drama explores issues of consent and control in a young female artist’s life, as she struggles to break free and find her own voice.

 

Sorry for the brief update but I’m currently in Chicago prepping my next project but I really wanted to share this and hopefully those who get to see the film in St. Louis enjoy the film.

Until next time! Be Blessed!

“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.

Making Movies with Wuz Good

So still playing catch up. At the end of the “I Am That Man” project, I was getting ready to fly back to the east coast from Director Wesley “Wuz Good” Armstrong asking if I wanted to AD a short. I was like “when is it because I fly out on Thursday”. Wes was like cool, “we shoot on Wednesday.

So a little bit of history between Wuz Good and I. We went to Full Sail together and between the photo shoots, music videos and commercials, we worked on at least 50 projects together. After that run of projects, I set my eyes on feature films and Good turned his eye on the internet. While Wuz Good was killing the game on Vine and Instagram he always said the goal was to make movies and the opportunity presented itself to do a short and here is what we did.

The short is called “Ding Dong Ditch” Staring Sunny Mabrey, Brandi Marie King, Joey Diggs Jr.  & Wes “Wuz Good” Armstrong produced by Off The Dock. The digital studio of Lakeshore Entertainment.

Shout out to the cast and crew of this project. We knocked this out in 1 day  and it turned out amazing!!

Make sure you subscribe to my blog so you can get all the updates. Sometimes my post come to all my social media accounts, sometimes it doesn’t. It’s a little bi-poloar.

Until next time! #MakeMovies
