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, JoÃ£o 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.
