Director / Writer / Producer
In close collaboration, I can help develop and write a narrative utilizing existing footage, stock footage, and/or new footage that clearly expresses and communicates ideas in ways that excite and move people.
From camera, lights, sound, production design and actors, I’ve worked with them all myself and directed crews exceeding 100 people to meet the demands of the script while staying on time and on budget. I’ve worked especially close with interview subjects and other non-actors to help them feel comfortable in front of the camera and deliver their messages in a compelling manner.
I’ve cut together hundreds of projects in my own editing studio as well as supervised editors, special effects artists, sound designers and music composers. I can also ensure each project meets the technical demands of various online and offline distribution platforms.
