We are now offering aerial video and photography, commercial and residential cinematography, sporting and live events coverage, life moments and anything else you can think of to use us for.

BUT I'M ALSO GOOD AT...

BUDGET DEVELOPMENT

Am I a numbers geek for enjoying budgets like I do jigsaw puzzles? I use top-notch budgeting software to track every dollar from concept to big screen.

SCRIPTING

Writing is a lot like cooking. You bring me the concept, I add the nouns, the verbs, the dialogue, to braise, broil, and season your vision to life.

CAST & CREWING

Hitchcock said, “Actors are cattle”. I disagree. Casting a brilliant team and a good crew is one of the most important parts of building an incredible production.

SOUND DESIGN

Sound design is the perfect complement to incredible storytelling and filmmaking. I love bringing your ideas to life from the perfect soundtrack and effects through the final mix.

MOTION GRAPHICS

Motion graphics is the “cherry on the top”. Using After Effects and Nuke, I can inspire or simply entertain you with 2D, 3D animation and compositing.
