Status Update

About a month and a half ago I promised my readers that I would be updating them on everything I’m doing for the process of my first feature film. That film was to be called Undertome, based off the game my best friend and I designed over six years ago. That has since been tabled. The main reason is because it’s too ambitious at this point and I wouldn’t want to attempt to make that film without the necessary overhead and frankly, experience.

Demo Reel and Cinematography self-critique

Well it’s the end of the year, for me anyway, and I guess just as good a time as any to write some reflections. When I made my first film last year I made it with the intent to learn about filmmaking. I’m not good in a classroom setting. I have a hard time retaining information by reading it in a book and taking notes. I have to do things to learn them. I made what I thought was a good short film. Got some feedback and some notes from people both in and out of “the industry” and set a goal for 2019. That goal was to make 10 short films in the year. Mission failed, but really, a success because even though I didn’t make 10 full shorts I did learn at least twice as much about filmmaking as I did in 2018; so to quote Professor Hulk “I see this an absolute win!”

July progress and current/future projects.

July saw the premiere of my latest short film “Mother’s Day”, I joined a 48hour Film Project team and produced what I thought was a fairly decent offering given the fact that (as far as I know) everybody in the team was new to the project except me. Adam Philip was the director and teaches at the Columbus Media School from where he assembled his team and I hope they learned many lessons about what it’s like being on a film set. He introduced me to my next project which is the Cincinnati Fright Film Competition.
