I’m on a roll! Look at that, two blogs back to back after being away for 6 months to focus on projects. This time I would like to share with you another project of mine that’s gotten me all giddy. I think I’ve actually found a new love. For the first time, I can imagine life outside of photography. Crazy I know. I’ve always wanted to make movies, more like I’ve always wanted to be in front of the camera. Be a Hong Kong action star like Andy Lau, but I could never remember lines…maybe I could have been the next Silent Bob. Perhaps in the next life time.
Recently I wrote a short film that I am now directing, dp’ing, and producing. I don’t know how it happened but it just did. Sometimes you’re just thrust into things and it turns out to be a blessing. That’s exactly how I discovered my love for photography and made the career change in 2007. It’s like dejavu all over, except now the transition will be a little easier since I’m already working with lights and camera gear.
After writing this script, I started researching and watching other short films out there and I have to say, I feel really good about this film and it’s potential. I have high hopes for it to do well in the festival circuit. We’ve already started filming and it’s coming together nicely. We have a talented team from top to bottom. The footage looks amazing and so far the actors have delivered. If you would like to find out more about this project, please visit our Indiegogo page:
Like I’ve mentioned, we are halfway done with filming and planning on shooting the rest by the end of the year but in order to do it justice and not cut corners, we need some help financially to take the burden off of our shoulders. If you could help spread the word and perhaps donate $5 to our project, I’d be so appreciative. I know that you will love this film and it will feel good that you’ve made it possible.
