Your Story

Why do you make independent films?

Where/how did you start?

How did you get where you are today?

What are your goals?

How much money, and how many hours, have you personally put into working on independent films - over how long of a period?

Because I can. Who wouldn't want to make movies?

Here in Honolulu through friend's student films and my own curiosity buying one of the first consumer editing cards (Bravado 1000, yuck).

Lots of failures.

Less failures.

Lots of money, but paid event videos have maken it just about break even. "Hours!" ("Hours!" is an inside joke from the first movie I worked on.)
