About Me

Owner @ 15 Seconds Media

CUNY Brooklyn College '11
B.A., Film (Marketing concentration)
Minors: Marketing (Economics Dept.)
Consumer Behavior (Sociology Dept.)

Undergraduate program focusing on tailored utilization of current marketing theory & concepts for the independent film business, from the moment the screenplay is begun, to production, through the festival/sale process, landing a distribution deal, promotion, and finally its financial performance in exhibition & VOD/streaming markets. What makes any indie film a potential winner? Creating a moving, watchable film that will be viewed again and again, which ultimately translates into satisfactory ROI.

Need help financing your film? Selling it at film festivals? Getting production insurance or a completion bond? Want your script reviewed to assess its base marketability as a viable cinematic work, or to get script coverage that will make it more appealing and/or pique the interest of investors? I began studying Film History at Sarah Lawrence College in 1991, and later worked as an intern for First Look Film Series (now Tribeca Film Festival), as the Host for screenings of films like Chutney Popcorn, which went on to be an "indie darling" success story. I can help you shape your work to make it more commercially viable, while sacrificing as little of its artistic value as possible (ideally none). Free initial consultation (max 1hr), contract rates negotiable based on TBD project/case specifics

I have been in the industry since 1999.
