short film

Flying Blind

I’m very excited for today’s release of ‘Flying Blind’. Over the summer of 2017, I worked with an incredibly talented post production team at Billy Graham to assemble what I believe is a very powerful short film designed to encourage Christians to take their seemingly small decisions and actions more seriously. The program features four heartfelt true stories plus an allegorical illustration designed to support the overall theme of the program as well as Franklin Graham’s message.

Every single person involved in this project put great care and many hours of prayer into every single aspect of this piece. I’m really proud to see this level of writing (and re-writing), shooting, acting, musical score, art direction, visual effects, editing, color grading, and marketing.

My specific role was editing the story segments alongside Tyler Garnett who post-produced each segment. In addition, I color graded the entire piece and got to dust off my composition skills to enhance the score for the opening segment – everything from the first note through the opening title. The trippy, dark synths and top melody line (unashamedly influenced by ‘Stranger Things‘ and reminiscent of 80’s film scores) are my additions to an existing underscore.

Larissa Miller, full-time at BGEA, produced the airplane segments with Evan Vetter editing. Micah Bomgaars, full-time at BGEA, was senior producer, overseeing the entire production of the program.

This piece truly has the potential to help stir a spiritual awakening within the church, which in turn can really minister to a hurting world. Please watch and then share with anyone you can. BGEA has a Flying Blind landing page with information for ordering a free DVD and discipleship resources. Thanks for reading and watching!

 

A Chess Player – Trailer

A short film I edited and graded will be premiering very soon. Check out the trailer – cut by the director, Shea Sizemore, with an original song he co-wrote for the film.

I love it. I love the film. I hope you will too. I’ll keep you posted.

I wish my wedding had been captured like this

All I have is a VHS tape that puts me to sleep every time I watch it! I loved my wedding day – it was the best day of my life. But back in ’96 it wasn’t quite possible to capture the day in a short film style. It certainly is now, and few are doing it better than the fine folks at Caravan.

They absolutely kill it when it comes to documenting your special day.

I edited and graded this piece at the end of 2013.
