About Dave

Producer, writer, director, actor in "THE HIKE". Sounds no different than most folks here except I'm old enough to be y'all's GrandPa. LOL! Maybe not THAT old, but close. Another way I'm not a typical indie filmmaker - my wife and I took out a 2nd mortgage on our house to make THE HIKE. No crowdfunding though Mom did give me some $$ (full disclosure). Graduated from UNCSA in 97 with a degree in filmmaking. Oh, I was 36 when we accepted our diplomas. I've always been late to the party - I hung onto my 8 tracks while everyone else bought cassettes, I treasured my laserdiscs while everyone else bought DVD's. I still have cable, no dish. I digress. The class after mine wasn't too shabby - David Gordon Green, Craig Zobel, Jeff Nichols, Jody Hill, actors Paul Schneider & Danny McBride. BTW - Danny was a writer in school. What too so long? I had a family. Wanted to be a husband and father, not a filmmaker. Now, son in college and with wifey's blessing, THE HIKE is born. At my age I'm all about giving back so if anyone needs advice with putting together a film, hit me up. I wore many hats to save $$ - I was 1st AD, location mgr., props, wardrobe designer, PA - I was available for any job that needed to be done. DO IT!
