As a former blues musician, I like to take the improvisational style of that music and apply it to film. Find a framework and a scale and then feel the groove within that. My training is specifically in documentaries and because of that, I work quickly and make the best of my environment. One of the main reasons I moved from music to film is that this is a much more collaborative industry, and I love working with new creatives all the time.
