I love what I do. I'm passionate about getting it right and helping others do their best. I'm usually the lead on a project and so try to make everyone feel wanted, needed, and appreciated. The best suggestions can come from the lowliest of crew positions sometimes. It's a team effort this industry, and the team must include people you can trust, from the manufacturers who make your gear to the PA who arrives with the goods needed.
That said, your first duty is to your story whether it's an ad for a car or a feature film, every element, visual and aural must support the story.
|Experience||More than I want to admit to.|
40 years professional show business. Theatre, Film, Video, Producing, Writing, Directing.. Actually started as an actor. Entered the dinner theater business in the '70's during it's hey day, and then just moved where the eyes went. To video in 1978.
When I went to college I was told you couldn't edit that 2" video tape at all without splicing it. I teach digital non-linear editing in two universities today.
