my director's reel
My reel is my visual capabilities statement as a film director informed by my work history. It's my intent that it implicitly and explicitly conveys these points about me and my strengths:
- 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 recognize post-production elements like color grading, CGI, editing as ways to enhance the story after filming
- Pacing, energy and tone can all be conveyed by editing
- I use actors' expressions and blocking to construct a scene
Most of my work has been completed through my studio, PLANET NERD RAGE PRODUCTIONS.
My film work includes directing, camera work, and post-production work including editing and digital visual effects.
Here are some highlights:
- "Ghost Source Zero" is a feature length film currently distributed in the US, the UK, and Japan
- "Protocol Deviation" is a short film series whose pilot premiered on Warner Bros.' Machinima Network
- "Deployment Strategy" is a short film that won numerous festival awards before being picked up by IndiePix Distribution.
- Not featured in the footage above is my off-genre work for Nickelodeon promotions
