I am excited to get to work with an awesome cast. I have worked with most and some new. This will be a fun adventure. I have been doing some location scouting and prepping the equipment I am going to use to make this story come to life. Equipment is only a tool in the equation though. Assembling your cast to bring your story to life is the heart of the production, and I am excited to team up with a local crew who have 1, the passion and desire for filmmaking and 2, they are just all around awesome people! I will be posting who is on board for crew in a later post.
Why do I love filmmaking? There are various number of reasons but primarily I would say it is the ability to create a concept, a story and then use resources such as actors, cameras and crew to relay the vision that is in my head. I love the team work and collaboration that comes with making movies. I have ventured, many times into the business world offering video services but there is just something off when it comes to me using my resources and abilities, selling them to businesses and thus jumping into that pool of competition between other video people as to who can do the best or bring the best work at an often low ball price. I have decided to jump out of the pool, work only with people I know rather than prostitute my skills and abilities for others satisfaction at low prices.
The camera has always been a sub conscience tool. Literally acting as a brain with eyes and ears to present a story, a thought, an idea. That is what I love about filmmaking. It runs deep with me. Jim Carrey (of all people) said it best, “You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
So check out the cast below and follow the journey of creating a story for the screen.
