Brooklyn Based Filmmaker

The Brooklyn Film Race

In October I teamed up with some friends and collaborators to participate in The Brooklyn Film Race, a competition to see who can write, shoot, edit and deliver a four minute film in 24 hours. We made it.

My wife, Jessica, was our writer. My friend and former classmate, João Lameira, was our director. His girlfriend, Mafalda Melo, was our cinematographer. Miranda Childs who worked with me on my directing project at NYFA was our lead actress, and I acted as editor.

It was a great collaborative exercise. We completed our short, “For Outerspace I Long,” with 2 hours to spare. I am really proud of what we produced.
