“When time is our most precious commodity, we have to deliver a bigger return on our 90 minutes of entertainment. We have to give people those bigger experiences and mementos…”
- Ted Hope, Film Producer (Martha Marcy May Marlene)
I have been fascinated with almost every aspect of filmmaking and the changes that have happened in the industry since I was a child. I knew from the age of 8 years old that I wanted to make films.
My goal since has been to work with new and experienced filmmakers to deliver exciting and fearless content that crosses over to a mainstream audience across multiple platforms.
Two years ago I created Duat Film & TV development, a screenplay and IP development start-up whose aim was to develop and market screenplays from new writers. While Duat Films hasn't really taken off just yet, I believe that failures are just as important as successes and you can learn from both. From this 'failure', I discovered that I had a surprising fascination and passion for marketing & distribution.
Now I am still learning and gaining the experience I need to become a film & media content producer who can easily walk the line between community, creativity and commercialism.
I am also an original member of the filmmaking collective, THE VIPER’S NEST at Salt. http://www.salt-co.com/index.php/thevipersnest/.
If you want to e-talk about any aspect of film production, the state of the independent film industry now and in the future and even about my love of horror, thriller and Sci-Fi films, please get in touch, even if it's just to connect and parlay.
