Thrive promo

This promo video is for Thrive, a young adults ministry based in Gig Harbor, WA.  It was made with the help of Nate Ward and Rebekah Parkhurst.  Nate and I shot the footage.  I edited the video and Rebekah wrote the music and made the end graphic.  It was shown at a fundraiser for Thrive the beginning of February 2014.  It was a great thrill for me to have the opportunity to have a professional musician score my video.  I’m not sure I can go back to buying tracks!

My First Movie

The firsts in life can be great.  This was for me.  My good friend Tobias Christopher and I wrote this short silent film one evening and shot it soon after.  We used the only camera either of us had at the time which was my Kodak Playsport.  It worked just fine for what we needed to do.  I directed and produced.  Tobias edited using Adobe Premiere 4.0.   Jessica Stults did great as our leading lady.  We got a few more of our friends involved and made it happen.

My friends and I had a blast shooting, directing, acting and editing in this video!  This was used as an add for a men’s church event.  This is a Director’s Cut because we couldn’t show the final scene for church but it’s to funny not to show now!

For camera A we used a Canon 7d. Camera B was a Canon 60d. For audio we used a Zoom H4N and for the epic train shot (spoiler) we used a Kodak Playsport!

My First Documentary

This movie makes me quite proud.  I was asked by Kristine if I’d be willing to make a short film for her to use at an event she was asked to speak at in Tacoma.  We had limited time and had to rush the production but it all came together.  It was also my first time going start to finish in producing a short movie.  We shot in the areas where some of Kristine’s story happened and where “stuff” goes on today.  I didn’t get time to make it as solid as I would of liked but given the circumstances I was happy with it.

Today Kristine help women who have been or are being trafficked.  I’m proud of her and the work I got to do in helping her by making this short movie.
