Making 33 Films in 33 Days

Making 33 Films in 33 Days

In 2014 I decided to learn filmmaking on a different level. I’ve made shorts before for fun (which by the way always end up the best – so have fun) and for whatever other reason. So right before this I wrote and shot a …. ummm… pretty interesting pilot called School of Ballet. I shot and edited it for one of my favorite events The New York Television Film Festival. I had a friend who liked it a lot and gave me maybe about 500 bucks to film the pilot, which was all spent on food, and locations mostly.
I had shot a feature with the same amount the same year.
I was getting great feedback about everything except the quality of production which was understandable so my goal was to
FAIL FORWARD FAST … the idea that the faster I fail, the faster I can learn, move on, and succeed.
I put up an IndieGogo campaign and raised 3,333 dollars. I was also hit up by production companies wanting me to take their money instead for ownership. I said no because I wasn’t doing this for the same reasons they were.
Luckily I was in a couple improv teams at the time and had access to a shitload of actors ready to play. Same thing with writers, although that got tricky. I think I ended up writing 25 of the scripts (Some the day of!) Made a lot of friends, a couple of enemies, and learned A TON!!! Very grateful to all that were involved.

I like to think of 2014 as the sorting hat to lead me in the right direction.

Glad you are here.
