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!!

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.

Update on Me! Movies, Music Videos, Commercials, Life..

Hello World!! What’s been up?? I know it has been a while since I’ve updated the site but I’m back!!

In mid August I dove in deep in the feature world and was 2nd AD on my very first feature film “Two Headed Shark Attack” directed by Chris Olen Ray. To say it was an awesomely crazy adventure would be an understatement. I learned so much in those 3 weeks, at one point I kind of questioned why I really went to Film School. Then I remembered my resume and all of my work that I have been doing is because I went down to Orlando and started my music video/commercial career there.  Anyway, about the project. I was in the Florida Keys for 3 weeks and it was awesome! But it was a lot of hard work. To be honest, at times I felt very overwhelmed with the amount of work that needed to be done but with the help of guys like Zack Greene, Robert DeWeese & Donovan Nelson we got the job done. There is no way I could have made it through this project without them. It wasn’t a large crew on this project so everyone was wearing multiple hats. But we all got the job done and we all have stories to tell about it!

I would go on and on about the movie and the production but you guys don’t want to hear about my long days and nights on set! Just know the movie is coming out January 17 of next year (2012)! Be sure to check out the Asylum website for further updates about the project.

“No Charge” Short Film

I AD’d an awesome short film!!! So to start off I like to catch you guys up on what I’m doing with my career. Right now, I kind of put myself in a box. Meaning in the film world I’m a “music video and commercial guy”. In a normal world that might be looked at as a good thing but it’s not when you are trying to make that transition into the film world. For some reason, some Producers and Directors don’t think I am capable to AD a feature film…..
