Being A First-Time Director at tommysTV

Last week was the first time that I formally directed a tommysTV produciton. It was my designated episode of our mini-doc series: the Digital Craftsmen Series. I directed the piece about Chad Schoonmaker, an abstract painter, and I was nervous about the entire project. However, all the nerves dissolved away once I got on set. Preparation was key in this scenario.

I wanted to get my first reactions down as quickly as possible. Enjoy!

Don't forget to record your journey as you go along.

My Life Story (sort of)-

I can remember picking up my family's video camera as a teenager and being enthralled that I could make an impact in someone's life. The filmmaking process is complex but at the heart of it simple: tell a compelling story. 

What resonates the hardest is visual storytelling. The ability to create an emotion or convey an idea through an image is what drives my career as a filmmaker. My marathon mentality is focused on becoming the best cinematographer possible.
