A Pens to Lens Short Film
Shared Roles: Director, Producer, Director of Photography
This was my first experience directing, though it was a co-directing situation. The three of us–Andrew, Thomas, and myself–share a lot of commonality in terms of what we like, and this was genuinely a collaborative experience. We made on-set decisions together, made the shot list together, and took turns offering direction to the cast. It was a lot of fun to be silly and weird and put a lot of ourselves into this.
We were very fortunate to actually cast the three writers as the bullies in the opening montage of the film. It was amazing to watch them watch their script come to life in production.
