I am a self-taught filmmaker.
Drew Barrymore picked me for an indie-director film show on VH1 and George Romero picked a short film I did to be included on the DVD release of his last feature. I also just had my first short documentary screen at the Cannes Film Festival.
I got into filmmaking right at the start of the digital revolution (I learned on Final Cut Pro 1). My school didn't offer film classes, so I parked myself at the local cable access channel with the FCP manual and muscled through my first film. Since then, I've managed to secure a full-time job making corporate type films. My goals is to support myself and my future family making movies that I write, produce, and direct.
