October 1, 2012
I recently finished two shorts (one 20 min. and one 12 min). I wrote, directed, produced, edited and did sound design on both. I would like to parlay my knowledge of the work pipeline into working with a producer as an associate producer with talent, design teams or in post-production. I would love to work on films from pre- to post-production. I am currently working on several scripts, but have not begun looking to produce them, and will be doing that in the future.
I have just finished a short called "Home Fires" (12 min) which is a finalist in the Louisiana Film Prize and premiering is Oct. 5-7th. This spring I showed my thesis film, "tree" (19:58) at the Little Rock Film Festival and am currently submitting it to other festivals. I worked as a sound designer for a student film. While at the University of Central Arkansas I also built a 15 sec. ad for the MFA program in AfterEffects. I am currently in talks to develop web content for a realty/restoration company.
I have worked as a writer and theater director and film/theater actor my entire adult life. The move into film/TV is a natural progression. I would like to continue to write and occasionally direct my own scripts. But while doing that I would like to work for other productions as an associate producer or producer. I love post production. I also worked as at TA in acting classes. I like following a project from beginning to end. I hope to meet other professionals and hopefully build mutually beneficial relationships. I want to hear about upcoming productions and other interesting news about the local industry.
I am Christy Ward. After 20+ years writing, and acting, I went back to school and got my MFA in Digital Filmmaking from the University of Central Arkansas. I am currently looking for Associate Producer and editing work while finishing scripts.
