That was me in 2 and a half minutes! My reel is my visual capabilities statement as a film director informed by my work history. These are the salient points:
I work in the action/sci-fi genre
I collaborate with stunt professionals and special effects artists
I include camera movement, actors, props, and the environment as tools to convey story points & emotion
I leverage these post-production elements to enhance the story: color grading, CGI, editing
Pacing, energy and tone can all be conveyed by editing
I use actors' expressions and blocking to construct a scene

A REALITY SHOW FROM THE FUTURE
ON THE NETWORK OF THE FUTURE
We teamed up with the Machinima Network to create an original short entitled, PROTOCOL DEVIATION. The story is told as a reality show from the future- an embedded camera crew follows the exploits of an underfunded security team sent to investigate a possible outbreak of a disease that plagues the synthetic tissue androids wear. Protocol Deviation (originally titled Red Rash/Ghost Source Zero) premiered on the Machinima network shortly before the channel was acquired by Warner Bros and found a new home with Otter Media.
a real american hero & fan film
OPERATION: RED RETRIEVAL was designed to be the quintessential GI Joe fan film for anybody who grew up in the 80s playing with action figures. The GI Joe homage impressed not only die hard fans - the creator of the GI Joe comic books and 80s Marvel Comics editor, Larry Hama, was also a fan. With over 500,000 Youtube views, the film brought Hama and Planet Nerd Rage together as team who would go on to co-write and co-produce Ghost Source Zero
