Lifelong writer and nerd, I wrote my first feature screenplay in high school(produced 1 - 8mm short which friends/cast burned in a campfire or trash can magically prescient of youtube. Have auteured several shorts on 16mm since, still in post on a few, anybody got a flatbed? Yeah-I know, but my sound is on mag stock;)
Will update later...I love production, am a polymath of sorts (have worked as an ASE auto tech, and am A+ certified (IT). I have worked professionally as a grip electrician and rigger, in films and television, music videos, and shorts, and was a floor crew camera operator for KJRH for about a year.
I like to lay dolly track in jib terrain, and don't care if it's matthews or skateboard.
If you need a handy person on your crew, WHO LOVES FILM, and enjoys problem-solving, my tool set is more extensive than Jeff Spicoli's Dad's.
No truck, no heads, no substantive grip gear, but I can fabricate some things, and have a clean MVR; I'll drive it if you rent it;)
