Director and 1st AD, DGA Unit Production Manager (UPM) and Line Producer
I offer key skills in project development, budgeting, production and editing. Also experienced with legal, insurance, scheduling, production prep, crew and equipment needs, for television, digital media, still photography and motion picture production, editorial and financial accounting.
I have Directed multiple shorts and hundreds of corporate programs as well as line produced or managed multiple low budget feature films. A wonderful collaborator.
Additionally, I'm an expert with the SAG signatory process and required paperwork. I've personally prepared and submitted the union documents on every production I've worked in the last 10 years. So, over 2 dozen successful and hassle free relationships with the oft-difficult union. I'm well versed with all other entertainment unions as well.
LA based, yet I've worked all over the US and international. Great with interviewing and evaluating local resources and crew for integration in to our well oiled machine. Tough when necessary, but always diplomatic. Wonderful LA contacts for crew, equipment, insurance and legal.
Please review the recommendations stored on my LinkedIn.com profile. Also my IMDb entertainment credits are current.
An added bonus... I've successfully gotten all my projects listed on IMDb! Often a mystery, I've mastered the application process and understand the required external references.
Let's talk, tell me more about your project. I have the qualifications and experience to be an great asset to your production.
