Why me? •
Leadership experience in every step of a film’s development. Focused training in writing, shot design, story boarding and directing actors. Consistently approached for script consultation and writing work in narrative, documentary and animated film. Proven management skill in location agreements, casting and budgeting. Held a variety of crew positions including 1st AD and Script Supervisor work extensively.
Technical expertise: Final Draft, Movie Magic Budgeting and Scheduling, Scenechronize, Microsoft Word and Excel. Experience with on-set production equipment.
What I can offer: As an Eagle Scout, teamwork and leadership have become second nature. I look for and offer solutions over excuses. My out of the box thinking has solved the “unsolvable”. My sense of humor defuses tension on and off set. I can easily articulate my own ideas and am adept at listening to those of others. I believe every job in film is integral. I work tirelessly for what I believe in.
