Brenan Dwyer and I were selected to make a short film as part of the Open Signal and Lower Boom POST-TRUTH project which was included in the article.

What I'm working on--all the things

What I'm working on--all the things

It's been a busy few months though you can hardly tell from my blog. I've been behind on updating here. 

I've been working on videos with the Portland Water Consortium, Portland'5, APANO and then also working on narrative projects. I shot the short film Working Lunch

Shooting with my GH5 on the RoninM gimbal for a short film directed by Shilpa Sunthankar. I'm in there somewhere.

During my job shadow with director Debra Granik while she was in town filming her next feature film. Her previous narrative film, nominated for multiple Oscars, was entitled Winter's Bone and starred Jennifer Lawrence. I got to follow her around on set, learning her ways and yes, it was amazing!

I've signed on to direct the new web series by creator Luann Algoso about a nonprofit workers in the whitest city in America. The series is called "Nonprofit."  Above, Amy Nieto-Cruz, producer, me and Luann Algoso. Luann will also star in the project.

Q and A with Briar Levit, director of Graphic Means, a documentary short that I shot. Briar and I travelled all over to make her film about the world of design before computers. It was a sold out audience at the Hollywood Theater and currently, the film is screening around the world!

I'll direct. Kjerstin wrote the script. Christian Henry will produce and Sidony O'neal will star!  Stay tuned!
