Shooting UW Athletics LIVE – Go Huskies!

Last year my work at UWTV got even more interesting, because in addition to working on the national PBS television show  Well READ (which I really enjoy), I had the opportunity to be a part of the TV crew for UW Huskies Football home games at Husky Stadium. Being on the field was exciting because I got to […]

Too Busy to Blog!

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve added anything to my blog or updated my website, but I’ve been CRAZY busy all year.  #NOTcomplaining. I’ve been working regularly as part of the UWTV crew, adding camera operator to my list of jobs there.  My ongoing gig with Well READ — seen on over 250 public television stations, covering 84 percent […]

Are YOU Well Read? … or, “The Best Part of Crewing My 1st National TV Show”

This summer I signed on to be a member of the production crew at UW Video. UW Video, located on the University of Washington Seattle campus, is a complete video production studio with state of the art equipment, professional staff (including me) and technical expertise. When I joined UW Video, my first gig was working […]

Choice Cuts: My New Editing Reel

Now that I’ve graduated from LMU and have begun to add professional projects to my portfolio, I decided it was a perfect time to update my editing reel. The reel begins with a clip from a Cloud Atlas trailer I created during my early-2015 internship at Mark Woollen & Associates in Los Angeles. The challenge with that project was that […]

IT’S LIKE POETRY: The Saga of Darth Lucas

Mashups and fan videos have always fascinated me, particularly ones relating to Star Wars.  So, as both a Star Wars fan and an editor, I guess it’s kind of a no-brainer for me to create one myself. I wanted to take George Lucas’s often mocked quote which compares the parallels between the original and prequel trilogies […]

02 Outside the Memorial

Memorial Tribute to a Legend

Just about every guitarist, from bedroom noodler to stadium shredder, knows Jimi Hendrix. The man may just be the greatest guitar player to ever live and one of the most creative and original musicians in history. That’s why I was honored and thrilled to visit the Hendrix Memorial in Renton, Washington. Like many other great […]

STAR WARS Comes to Seattle’s EMP Museum

It’s really no secret that I’m a massive Star Wars fan. So when I heard that there was an exhibit filled with original Star Wars costumes at the EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum at the Seattle Center, making time to get over there was a no-brainer. Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and The Power of Costume […]

01 Just Some of Our Awards

The Art of Movie Trailers (aka Learning How They Make Magic @ Mark Woollen & Associates)

Fifty Shades of Grey.   Gone Girl.   Birdman.   The Theory of Everything.   Boyhood.   CitizenFour.   The Social Network.   Black Swan.   The Tree of Life. ALL of these wildly diverse Hollywood hits share a wonderful common connection. Have you watched a movie trailer that really drew you in? And, when it was over, you knew you just HAD to see the film? […]

A new season of The Hollywood Masters began last month, moderated again by The Hollywood Reporter’s Stephen Galloway. First to come to LMU was one of my personal favorite actors, Ethan Hawke, followed by producer Gale Anne Hurd of The Walking Dead and Terminator trilogy, Sir Kenneth Branagh, and this week Sean Penn was our […]

The Hollywood Masters, moderated by The Hollywood Reporter executive features editor Stephen Galloway, returned to LMU this semester for Season 2. Galloway was recently named LMU School of Film and TV’s Cosgrove Family Distinguished Visiting Artist for 2014. Once again, I was part of the production crew and it was awesome. This season our guests […]

The Hollywood Masters Come to LMU

Being a film student at LMU has afforded me opportunities to experience some truly fascinating film industry events up close. Recently, I’ve had the good fortune not only to attend, but also to be part of the production crew for, The Hollywood Masters — moderated by The Hollywood Reporter executive features editor Stephen Galloway. The Masters consists of 90 […]

19 Ready to Enter Nokia Theatre

2014 People’s Choice Awards

Awards Season is upon us and, once again, I attended the People’s Choice Awards, courtesy of Gotham Casting. The 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards were held last night at the Nokia Theatre, hosted by Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs. Plenty of A-listers were there to accept their awards like Sandra Bullock, Adam Sandler, Britney Spears, Robert […]

05 Between Lucas and Spielberg

Footprints of Legends

If you follow the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the Hollywood Highland Center west down Hollywood Boulevard (one of which is for The Doors), you’ll come upon the (formerly Grauman’s) TCL Chinese Theatres. Grauman’s Chinese Theatre held their grand opening in Hollywood on May 18, 1927 and cost a whopping […]

01 Arriving at Hollywood Highland Center

The Holidays at Hollywood Highland Center

The Hollywood Highland Center is right where you’d expect it to be — on the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and N. Highland Avenue — and it’s worth a visit if you haven’t already been there. Perhaps the Center’s best-known attraction is the iconic Chinese Theatre, host to countless Hollywood movie premieres and its stars’ handprints, shoe-prints and signatures […]

American Hustle Cast

David O. Russell Talks About AMERICAN HUSTLE and Much More

Last night I attended another screening at LACMA, this time with some fellow LMU film students. Many of these screenings, including the one last night, are presented in partnership with Film Independent.  This time, Film Independent uploaded a video of the entire discussion conversation between LACMA’s film curator, Elvis Mitchell and American Hustle director, David […]

07 Scene From Thief

Michael Mann Talks THIEF at the Aero Theatre

I love attending the screenings at the Aero Theatre and am constantly amazed that every single one of these film events aren’t SRO. How is it that this theater doesn’t sell out when there’s a chance to participate in a Q&A with a director like Michael Mann? Thief was one of Mann’s films that I […]

04 John Densmore and Robby Krieger Perform

An Evening with The Doors at LACMA

LACMA hosted a truly historic event tonight! Following a screening of the 2012 documentary film, Mr. Mojo Risin’: The Story of L.A. Woman, John Densmore and Robby Krieger shared a stage for the first time in over a decade to participate in a Q&A with Elvis Mitchell. The documentary tells the story of the making […]

01 Outside With the Air Hollywood Learjet 60

Landing at Air Hollywood

Today was a great day. A beautiful sunny day in L.A. and me getting to do what I love most, work on a feature film. That would have been enough to make it a good day, but working at the AMAZING Air Hollywood studios with such incredible people made it great. It was a last […]

22 Forest Whitaker Live

Amazing Night at The AERO with Forest Whitaker

Last night I had the privilege of attending a Q&A with Forest Whitaker at the Aero Theatre, followed by a screening of The Butler and Fruitvale Station. I got there very early and scored a front row center seat. Before the Q&A, a short montage played that included scenes from just some of the films […]
