APRIL RECAP: Things to Add to the Resume Editor's Pick

APRIL RECAP: Things to Add to the Resume

This April has certainly been quite the busy and eventful month. As alluded to in previous posts, it was not only the start of baseball season (and thus sports broadcasting), but was also the month in which I was heavily involved in principle photography for To Turn Back Time, a 40-minute independent film for which I was the DP. Amazingly, I was able to do both without any significant conflict in shooting schedules, but it also left me with only about 4 days off during the entire month.

And that makes the whole ordeal sound rather easy. As can be typical on lower budget independent films, some of our shooting days on To Turn Back Time ran upwards of 16 hours. That doesn’t include time spent afterwards planning out the next day (or sleeping, eating, etc.). When you do the math, I’ve worked at least 80 hours every single week since mid-March just on these two projects alone.

Now that the video is live and certain information is public, I can talk about some things that were previously protected by my non-disclosure agreement with the producers.

In brief, some of my filmmaking buddies from Several Houses Productions have put together a project under the working title “To Turn Back Time.” The official plot synopsis (POTENTIAL SPOILERS) is below:
