Stick With It!

I helped cut a trailer for a documentary film for the first time yesterday and I didn’t flinch once!

Planning the documentary trailer.

In all seriousness, though, I didn’t appreciate the growth process of the past two years of my life until I sat down and watched that trailer.  I’ve branched out into a whole other skill set, something I never really formally trained for or planned for.

Armin Nasseri edits a preview trailer for “George Hobbs:  Stick Figure Wisdom”

Armin Nasseri and I are working on a documentary about George Hobbs, a lifelong prop master in the movie business, who’s pursuing his passion for art.  We put a preview trailer together today for distributors.

Frankly, I didn’t know what to expect.  When you do fictional narrative, you have a script.  You know what’s coming!  With a doc, it seems, it’s a lot more like picking from beauteous fragments, because you just don’t know or can’t guarantee what will be said or not said.

I was pleasantly surprised!

I just started doing interviews two years ago and the opportunity to do in-depth interviews with George has been amazing.  We’re still shooting this amazing project.  Expect it to come out in 2020!

 

Psst…Super Top Secret Sneak Peak!

Can you keep a secret?

Here’s some stills from my first round of interviews for Domain of Horror!

2017 checks

Scream Queen Debra Lamb and I have many things in common, including the fact we’re both still writing “2017” on our checks and it’s already 2018.

Debra’s interview will be on Domain of Horror on 1/9.  Dawn’s will be up on 1/11 or catch them both on my YouTube channel on the evening of their release dates.
