Producer and Writer- mostly of short films. I've written a few short screenplays and commercials and recently produced the short film Love and Larceny for Team Hotpot Productions in the New Orleans 48 Hour Film Festival.
short films, commercials, 48-hr film festival
I started as a writer (perhaps "storyteller" is more apt) and view film as one of many ways that a good story can be told. I really admire people who use different ways to share stories (people who write novels, scripts, short stories, comic books/graphic novels, etc.) I also really enjoyed producing for our 48-hr FF entry and definitely want to continue doing that for other short film endeavors. I find movies to be such a collaborative effort (as opposed to when I sit in a room alone writing a story or novel)- so I definitely want to meet more people who I can work with to bring good stories to life onscreen.
I'm a writer and producer of short films. I started out as support for my partner, Justin Mapes, who directs, shoots, and edits. Over time, I started writing scripts for him (I'm a professional writer otherwise) and just produced our 48-hr FF entry.
Good networking opportunity and great info source about the local film community
