Film Teaser

I’ll be shooting a film teaser in Portland, Oregon this Saturday night, November 22, for “Calvin”, a feature length film being directed by Charles Gould. Charles adapted the screenplay from a short story his father had written about his own childhood. “Calvin” is about a boy whose life is changed after he faces new friends and new dangers when he runs away from home. After reading the script, I felt like, wow, this is really a story worth telling. It touches you and begs you to move.

I’ve worked with Charles on two other short films. He’s a quality actor and I’m looking forward to working with him again.

In addition to shooting the teaser, my company, Furman Pictures, LLC, will also be providing most of the production gear- camera, lighting, jib, dolley, etc. There’ll be some challenging camera movement, which I’m looking forward too.
