A little about your journey as a filmmaker:
Equipment You Use on Typical Project: Which ever is the fanciest camera and equipment I can get a hold of. I’m an idea man,
not so much a technical guy.
Majority of Recent Projects: Mostly narratives. Short self‐contained comedy skits.
Notable Clients: Three Moon Media and The Charlotte Star Room. Both local Charlotte places.
YOUR TRACK RECORD:
Largest Project: Shovels ‐ we had actual actors and some real production work in it. Real money was being spent. You know it’s real when money is spent.
Notable Mentors: Dan Harmon, I guess. Never met him but he’s my inspiration. He cares so much about his work, sacrifices a
lot, and never puts out anything sub‐par.
FILMS HAVE MADE PEOPLE LARGER THAN LIFE… YOUR THOUGHTS?
Your favorite famous person and why their influence improves our world: I’m too cynical and sarcastic to believe anyone’s influence improves the world. Bono?
Your least favorite famous person and aspects of their life which you hope never influence others: Justin Bieber I guess. Just shows how someone can start out from nothing and how quickly entitled and spoiled they can get. And despite most people hating them, they continue to be relevant.
JUST FOR FUN
A recent a ha moment: ????
The next exciting thing. Who knows. I wish I did so I can plan.
The last film you watched before you knew you wanted to make films? Step Brothers. I laughed so hard during the first time I saw that movie. I’ve yet to laugh that hard at anything since. It’s a stupid movie to be so influential to me, but at that point I knew I wanted to bring people the kind of laughter that I was given during that movie. It became my mission to give people the funny they deserve.
Who are the best filmmakers alive? Coen Brothers, probably. They are so flexible with their films. Their dramas are engaging and their comedies become cult classics.
