2013 has been challenging year for me. In 2012 I left a management position at Jeppesen, a Boing company, to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a filmmaker. I made a bunch of new friends and worked on many very satisfying film productions, however not nearly as many as I would have liked. Freelancing in the film business can be tough especially if you don't know that many folks in the business or if you don't already have an established reputation.
One thing for certain is that I am not going to give up. I have decided that although freelancing might work out in the long run there is yet another route to take. The time has come for me to start my own production company. I'll start with a focus on weddings and small corporate jobs and be available to work on other productions as a crew member when available.
My new company is called Crystal Lake Pictures and the website is: http://www.CrystalLakePictures.com
Let the games begin!
