FILM REEL

A FILM IS--OR SHOULD BE--MORE LIKE MUSIC THAN LIKE FICTION. IT SHOULD BE A PROGRESSION OF MOODS AND FEELINGS.  THE THEME, WHAT'S BEHIND THE EMOTION, THE MEANING, ALL THAT COMES LATER

-Stanley Kubrick

DOCUMENTARIES

Some segments in my portfolio include parts of five documentaries I've created so far, three of which were broadcast on PBS. This ad focuses on my latest, The Legacy of the Land,  which was narrated by Chris Sarandon and can be found on PBS Streaming.

Lifestyle Promotion

Another friend asked me if I would help him to market himself as a bodybuilder and fitness model. This is the first of three planned videos to accomplish that task. 

A Variety of Subject Matter

From documentaries to commercials, my work is diverse in style and tailored to the needs of the project.

Video is the preferred new communication, and I speak it in a variety of languages. Whether the somber tone of a documentary about the American Civil War, a humorous documentary about road construction, an advertisement for a breakthrough product, or an information video about the Interstate Highway system, my particular style is to let the content steer the tone.

These and other works seen in reel portfolio above.
