Filmmaker Magazine

Yes, the rumors are true. I'm writing a monthly column for Filmmaker Magazine that differs from the normal blog posts run here and everywhere. I'm very excited. Scott Macauley and I figured out an angle for it a little bit ago in a bar (where else?). So go, read the column. It's decently good. More importantly, it furthers our goal of introducing talented indie filmmakers to a larger audience, which is really what this is all about. Anyway, here's a taste.

But so far, the most rewarding part of the experience has been seeing first-hand just how amazing the film community can be when given the opportunity. I feel like I’m very much being taken care of and everyone has been really excited to have the help. Because, really, have you ever been on a low-budget film set that couldn’t use an extra set of hands to do basic stuff like carry c-stands and hold that extra bounce board the DP just decided was absolutely essential? Of course not, and that’s what I spend a lot of my day doing. Well, that and driving. I spend a lot of time driving.

Read the rest here.

And much thanks to Scott for letting me write for one of my favorite magazines.
