There’s something about the way a story can be told in film space that is kind of like magic. I hope to continue to have opportunities to make film in my professional career. Documentary film is especially exciting for me; artists such as Werner Herzog and Errol Morris come to mind. My documentary film, Human Skab, co-directed/produced with Frank Gunderson, ran the film festivals circuit around the country during the 2012-2013 season. The film is about the reunion tour of the band called Human Skab, the brainchild of Travis Roberts as an eight-year old kid in 1986. We chronicled the reunion tour in late 2009. We recently distributed online with Snag Films, the distributors of Super Size Me and many other awesome films. Check us out there on the Snag Films website. The documentary project was a lot of hard work, and we had no budget to speak of, and we still managed to pull together a great film with a wonderful message. Check out the Human Skab website for more information on the film and the band.
In addition to documentary film, I have a passion for fiction film of most genres. I love watching and then discussing movies with others. I have rated over 1,900 films at this point, and have written reviews (some brief, some extensive) for over 800 films. To say that film is a passion would seem to be self-evident.
