I'm not really a fan of the whole film festival process, but this one was too perfect to pass up. I'm proud to announce that The Girl I Should've Ended Up With will be screening at the 9th annual Love Actually Film Showcase in New York City on Valentine's Day!

I was lucky enough to team up with my 24-Hour Film Royal co-organizers to run this year's Quick Freeze Film Competition for the Anchorage International Film Festival. Like the Royal, we visited most of the teams during the various stages of production and filmed a behind-the-scenes documentary to play during the screening event. Again, putting together another successful filmmaking competition and making the documentary was another wonderful reminder of how great this community is.
Here's the newest video I produced, filmed, and edited for Alaska USA Federal Credit Union featuring Body Renew. This is the fourth in a series profiling their various business clients. Other than the addition of having access to lavalier microphone for this one, the equipment and software used was largely the same as the previous video. Continuing the tradition of having one aspect that bothers me, the purple lighting in the room we conducted the interview made the subject look a little discolored - something I thought I solved during setup, but didn't notice until I started editing.
Your Alaska Link was kind enough to stop by the kickoff event to interview me about the Quick Freeze Film Competition. I tried to sound like I knew what I was talking about.
Hey gang, I just wanted to let any of the ones of visitors to this site know that I'm going to be making some changes. I'm basically going to be doing more streamlining - it's a bit of a hassle to catalog events/photos/videos on this site when all of it can be found on my other social media accounts.
Co-hosts Chris Linn, Nathan Hall, and I got a chance to sit down with the Anchorage Press to talk about our new event, the Guilty Pleasures Show - a monthly screening of bad movies similar to Mystery Science Theater 300 or RiffTrax. Pick up a copy or click the photo to read all about it!
Here's the latest video I produced, filmed, and edited for Alaska USA Federal Credit Union featuring SteamDot Coffee Roasters. This is the third in a series profiling their various business clients. Like the last video, I used a Canon T2i with Magic Lantern, Zoom H4n, and Adobe Premiere CC. The sound isn't ideal, mostly because the interview was conducted in a tiny room and I didn't have access to lav mics, although I did try to salvage it in Adobe Audition.
I had such a great time organizing the 24-Hour Film Royal, the team and I jumped at the opportunity to take over the Quick Freeze Film Competition, a five-day event that runs as part of the Anchorage International Film Festival in December. Click the image to redirect to the competition website.
