Interview with Director Digging to DeathI’m from Kansas City, Missouri. I decided I wanted to be a filmmaker when I was 17 years old. I made 3 small micro budget features in KC before I moved to LA in 2012. From there I aspired, started a lighting company, and finally transitioned into directing and producing in 2018.

How do you convince yourself with things that you have to shoot for a film but you actually don’t otherwise believe ?

Suspension of disbelief. If I don’t believe what’s happening why the hell should I expect anyone else to? I get PUMPED for these stories and essentially believe every second of it. I’m essentially my own favorite audience member.

Your Scripting Process ? Your approach to casting ?

I come up with a story and hammer it out. I don’t like writing when uninspired. I gotta be pumped. I like writing rolls for people I have in mind, and if they’re unavailable then I see what the universe brings to the table

How much does your life influences your story telling and the characters that you bring to life ?

My life has been crazy so I imagine my crazy stories stem from it

How do you work on yourself to become better in your field learning , observing , reading ? Type of things you keep yourself involved with

My biggest thing I’ve worked on is my patience and my ability to respond vs react. Patience really makes the movie work, even when you can’t be patient, you have to be patient. You just have to hold steady

Filmmaking is team work. Tell us about your team and what sort of pre planning gets done before you decide to make a film. Tough things about making films and what keeps you going despite those tough things ?
