You are not original. (and that’s good)

This is where I tell you how to write, and not worry about being original.

Make a living doing what you love.

Choosing a title for this post was difficult. There is a lot of different elements here, but ultimately it is how to do what you love. What I mean by that, in my case, is how I feed myself, pay rent, and make money as a filmmaker. I went to college, but it wasn't that. I've... Continue Reading →

DCP in under 10 steps.

So you need a DCP. Well you've come to the right place. As a filmmaker, if you're talented (lucky) enough, you will be asked to have your work shown in a film festival.

It reminded me a lot of when I use drones in... Continue Reading →

I’m up for a major award…

So Awardeo, the lovely folk that claw through Vimeo films and create contests around them, have nominated my film about Cambodia for this week's showdown. I'm very honored it got seen, and it's in the running, although I dont know how it can compete against a CG rabbit and a film about staring out a... Continue Reading →
