What I Learned Shooting My First Feature Film on 35mm
In 2015, I started production on my first feature film, ANONYMOUS KILLERS. Shooting on 35mm was very important to me because the quality of film makes for a more natural, grainy look than filters applied to digital.

Creating the Raw Score for Sundance Film ‘Mass’
The emotional Sundance film, Mass, follows two sets of parents (Jason Isaacs and Martha Plimpton, Reed Birney and Ann Dowd) years an unspeakable tragedy tore their lives apart.

Ask a Filmmaker of any stature, and they will tell you that they never have enough resources (time, budget, equipment), to devote to any project. It’s certainly true for me shooting indie (read: low budget) features. However, for better or worse, it is an area of the business I’ve come to be known for, movies with budgets between half a million and five million dollars.
