3/14 – Current

My firends youngest brother, has autism and we had talked about creating a documentary about treatment and resources. From the beginning we worked closely to discuss what we were going to shoot, how we were going to shoot it and we decided to shoot 3 treatment options. My other responsibilities were to find crew, equipment for the film. I worked closely with crew to come up with what we were going to shoot for the each filming date. My main focus for this film was to focus on directing the crew and conducting the interviews. Once in a while I would camera operate when it was a light day of filming, or when I didn't have crew available. I am also one of the main editors for the project to make sure that we take out all the unnecessary footage and only use what is important for the story. I'm working closely with the composer to make sure that the music helps to tell the story and to bring emotion for some of the film.
