Time To Make A Movie

Posted on

Tomorrow I begin production on my second feature film ‘Dark Light’. It has taken me over a year to get to this point and I’m almost lost in a sea of different feelings. It’s hard to grasp the fact that I’m actually starting it. There were times where I thought it wasn’t going to happen. When you’re a one man team it is all too easy for it to fall apart. But at the same time I pushed onward to get it started. I don’t know how this film will turn out. I know what I wrote. I know what my intentions are. But I also know that what you set out to make is not what you will end up with in the end. I just want to make a film that is entertaining. I hope it is much more than that but at the end of the day […]

One week …

Posted on

I am officially one week away from starting production on my second feature ‘Dark Light’. An action thriller. It has taken over a year to get to this point and I am really excited and nervous. I originally wanted to make a much simpler film than my first film ‘Distortion’. However, I wanted to do something in a different genre. ‘Distortion’ is a horror film. ‘Dark Light’ is an action film. My two favorite genre’s as a filmmaker. I love all kinds of movies but the two that I say I’d want to make as a director would be ones within those genres. I wouldn’t mind getting pigeonholed there. Very quickly this film turned into a much bigger film than I had originally anticipated. As much as at times I do regret that I am also fueled by the challenge. Filmmaking is not easy. And if it is then you’re […]

Pictures Of Me Working? OMG

Posted on

On almost all of the shoots I’m on the only behind the scenes pictures taken are usually the ones I take myself. Even actors that take pictures of stuff on other sets never do on mine. I must be doing something wrong there. Anyway, so I have almost no pictures of me on shoots which kind of stinks. While working on a secret project (which will be announced in the future) one of the guys actually took some pictures of me working. Hopefully the beginning of many.

Toughest Thing About Making A Movie

Posted on

I get asked a lot what I think the hardest part making a movie is especially in the one man way that I do. The answer is almost always – locations. Finding the right location is what I think the hardest thing to do. So many factors go into play there. There is the obvious creative decision to find a place that is what’s either in the script or at least works for the scene(s) you need to shoot. But then there is the technical parts to it as well. Is there power? Is there enough power? Is there enough room for everything you’re bringing into the location as far as people, lights, camera, gear, food, etc.? Is there a time issue? You may only have access to certain locations for a set amount of time. If it’s a business of some kind you might only have a few hours […]
