The following videos are some recent ads I put together for an organization in Atlanta, GA. While I did not do any of the filming for these, I did 100% of the editing.

In preparation for the 2017-2018 season, I produced this video featuring the returning upperclassmen of the University of Kentucky’s Rifle Team as a recruitment tool.
During 2017’s summer I was able to fulfill a dream of mine: to work on a feature-length film. This film is called This World Alone. It is the story of three women and their quest for survival in a world reclaimed by nature. I was the script supervisor on set and I was able to assist with the edit in post-production
Not only was this a dream come true, it was a miraculous feat. We shot this 83 page script over the course of only ten days with a crew of about 15 and a cast of 5. Never have I ever worked with so many people who were so upbeat and dedicated to their craft. It was a major learning experience for all of us and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
And now we are in the middle of a crowdfunding campaign, having partnered with Seed & Spark, in order to raise finishing funds for the movie. It has been completely shot and edited, we just need to add in sound design and visual effects.
We are in the middle of the festival circuit, having been accepted into 4 festivals so far. At the Oxford Film Festival in Oxford, MS This World Alone won the award for Best Narrative Film and most recently at the Phoenix Film Festival in Phoenix, AZ TWA won two prizes, Best Picture as well as Best Screenplay.
With perfect weather and the most beautiful country setting, Heather and Jake joined in holy matrimony during the Memorial Day weekend of 2016 in Shelbyville, KY.
