Every person's path to learning how to be a filmmaker is different. When I set out to make my first feature film I was working as a database designer at a large corporate firm and dying a little inside daily.
There came a tipping point where I needed an exit strategy from the world of cubical farms that didn't involve a coffin and Daros Films was created. While still designing databases, I undertook my first feature, Greyscale, during nights and weekends. It challenged and bolstered me in ways I didn't expect, and while it was one of the most difficult things I've ever set out to do, it's also been one of the most rewarding.
The friends and film family I've made along the way I wouldn't trade for the world, and working with a bunch of daydreamers like myself has led to a lot of us escaping our daily routine and pursuing our dreams.
This blog is a repository of all the lessons that I hope not to forget as I continue on this path as a filmmaker, storyteller, director, actor, editor, producer, etc.
Oh, and that corporate programming job? Let's just say that a lot of hustle got me a full time position a salaried director making feature length documentaries in Nashville, TN.
