"Filmmaker": What does it mean?


Well, it means that I can:


  • Take a concept from a conversation to a completed screenplay

  • Take a complex, broken down, 90-page script and - through logistics and "movie magic" - compose a thoughtful schedule and a budget to match

    • For feature films, this can be 15-25 days and range from $25-150,000

  • Hire crew and cast; arranging auditions, location scouts, photo shoots and wardrobe fittings along the way

  • Execute contracts for investors, locations, cast, crew, rentals and insurance

  • Rehearse with actors and extras, giving feedback and helping them get in touch with the character they are playing

  • Envision a set and build it from scratch in a blank space (Yes, power tools involved!)

  • Maintain an accounting of expenses and payroll during a production

  • Coordinate the storage and backing-up of digital files from the camera

  • Edit footage into sequences and stories; syncing audio files with video, adjusting color and audio levels, adding music, titles, graphics and transitions

  • Export video files for various purposes - broadcast, cinema screens, social media or websites
