In 2013 I moved to Los Angeles to work in the film industry. I lived there for about 2 years and in that time I had the opportunity to be the lead producer for a web-series, production secretary on a feature film by Coatwolf Productions, editor of a music video for Small Leaks Sink Ships, key production assistant on an AFI thesis film and a plethora of other jobs on various video projects. Below are some examples of my work, including short blurbs about the videos and my role in their production.

The best gig I've ever had, and the hardest I've ever worked, was for the new feature film from Coatwolf Productions. It's called, "Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins". The opportunity to work on the movie was the entire reason that I relocated to California in the first place. I was the production secretary for the entirety of pre-production and principal photography. This job title is quite a bit better than key PA. Essentially, I was in charge of directly assisting the producers with absolutely anything they needed...and, on the rare occasion that they didn't need me for five minutes, I would end up helping out any other crew member I could find or going out of runs to purchase any random item that the production needed...anything to keep on schedule and save money! Aside from working with the producers in the production office, I was also given the role of, Tatsui Twin A. That's right, I'm an actor now! Okay, not exactly, but I do have an official acting credit on my IMDB page...


If you want more from my time with Coatwolf, you can view my pictures from the shoot in the "Photos: Production" section of this site. You can also see shots and read stories from my time on set, as a part of my VSCO Journal entry, "My Time with Coatwolf".


For one very hot week in May, I worked as a crew member on the AFI short film, "Father". I was the Key PA throughout production and served as an assistant to the Unit Production Manager.


In 2013, I cut together a live performance video for my good friends and former management clients, Small Leaks Sink Ships. The footage was shot by a friend of the band, so the footage I received was very shaky and the videographer was constantly changing his position on stage, so the footage was rarely in-focus and very difficult to watch. My task was to take what I had and make an enjoyable viewing experience of a live concert. So, I overlapped much of the footage and turned a simple performance video into a colorful, abstract visual experiment. I think it turned out quite well, especially given that it was one of the first videos that I edited.
