I remember when I first started in sales, it was the summer of my sophomore or jr. year in college. And u know sales, everyone thinks they are good at sales! I was back in Norcal for the summer and took on this job that turned out to be a scam and illegal operations, a lot of people may have heard of this. Basically we had to go door to door sales to businesses selling credit card processing and machines too. So I would go into your mom/pops business(anything that wasn't a big corporation) and convince you our rates are cheaper an...Read more
Hey all, please take a minute to checkout our new trailer for "Drowning" :Drowning Trailer Thanks everyone!
Shooting "Drowning" Complete
Been rather low-key with my "Drowning" even though it's my baby, not too much talk about it, i think this is my attempt to see my true potential at filmmaking on my own. I don't have much help on this film except for my DP(director of photography), unlike "600" i didn't want everyone helping me and doing everything for me. I wanted to struggle on my own and learn everything through this process: lighting, makeup, storyboards, building sequences, workin...Read more

We officially ended our production and now starting to editing the film. Our editor Barbara is on it and I think within a week we should have a roughcut of the film out.What did I learn from this experience of "Drowning":-Filmmaking is really really hard, esp. when you got 2 guys running a production. Luckily we got postproduction help.-Better preparation. Ideally for my next film, I'd shoot the whole project once on DV cam and edit the film to see if the editing works, and then decide if I want to add/change stuff befor...Read more
