Gasp! I've been going non-stop since before the holidays and realized that I've been a bit off the grid because of it. Well, I'm still here. Busier than ever but coming up for a breath of air before the next round of productions. So what have I been doing?
November started with a video job for Prolacta BioScience, a company who takes breast milk donations from mothers with excess, processes and fortifies the milk and then provides it to hospitals and doctors for premature babies. The videos I produced are "How To" videos for donor mothers to walk them through the steps of becoming a milk donor. We had a great two day shoot and a quick post schedule. Our cast was awesome: Chenoa Mitsui and Tanya Ihnen. Also, huge props to our team including Maura Concannon (Director), Jorge Urbina (DP), Eli Benavidez (Script Supervisor), and Moira Taylor (Hair & Make Up)!
In December, we went into production on the drama, "Cost of Capital," a new webseries created by Brian DeCherase, produced by Goldie Chan and myself, Allison Vanore, and directed by Jorge Urbina. We had an ambitious 9 day shoot and rocked it out just before the holidays. We're now well into post-production. I can't wait to get these episodes online for you all and especially for Brian's investment banker audience!
Literally within 24 hours of landing in LA after the holidays on the East Coast I was back on set. This time for a feature horror film by Todd Johnson and Mike Campbell, The Rental. We shot for 3 weeks with a small but very talented cast: Kimberly Browning, Mike Campbell, Ashley Love, Leah Verrill and Tiffany Walker. Our crew was amazing and included some who I've worked with before: Frederick Snyder (1st AD), Erin LeBre (Make Up, SFX, Hair), Moira Taylor (Make Up SFX, Hair), Mike Halper (Sound), etc. And I met some new people: Rick Greenwood (DP), Mohnish Sawaswat (Gaffer) and their teams. Now Todd is going to hybernate for a few months editing and creating the VFX for the film. At some point he's going to emerge to hand over the edit to music composer, Rob Gokee.

Now there's more to do so I'll be updating you about that soon. Happy New Year!
