About Aaron

On the existential front: I'm a husband, father, seeker, believer, doubter, writer, hack musician, filmmaker, lost and found human sort of guy. Making movies is what I hope to be doing for a long time. Telling stories. Doing my best to paint humanity in lights both harsh and ugly; forgiving and beautiful. I'm me. Not you. And I'll fail. I'll succeed when I'm not paying attention to failing and then we'll see… It's a journey and I think I just now started paying attention to it.

On the concrete front: I'm a Austin area filmmaker who heads a team of creative types called From The Top Turnbuckle Films. We've produced three short films so far, including Dirge which was created using a grant from CELTX (www.celtx.com) for their first ever Seeds program. Dirge is also the current demo material for CELTX's software.

Also placed in the top ten films at the Austin 2011 48 Hour Film Project and took home the best editing award (editing by John Mark Clawson).
