Actor / Filmmaker / Connect Film Festival Founder
Me: Back from 6 years in Australia, relocated to Austin via Los Angeles. I love of both sides of the lens, I started as a professional photographer in 2003 and worked crew before acting. Always seeking creative collaborators, sets to help out on, and projects to act in! I got my B.A at Yale & was grateful to train in film acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Art, Australia, but I haven't yet been to film school. CONNECT FILM FESTIVAL: I founded the filmmaker-centered short film festival Connect Film Festival as a networking hive for creative collaboration www.filmfreeway.com/festival/connectfilmfestival. Connect is an IMDB listed festival that celebrates of every aspect of filmmaking, with awards in technical categories such as Cinematography, Editing, Sound as well as Acting and Directing. We showcase short work (including excerpts of features) as an opportunity to connect cast and crew and form a filmmaker's "pre-production hub" and space for filmmakers on both sides of the lens to meet, share resources, scheme, dream, and make! Festival circuit projects have come out of Connect, and we are on our 5th festival. A great opportunity to showcase short films of any age, your best and shortest please: www.filmfreeway.com/festival/connectfilmfestival with a $10 submission discount for nfs readers, code "NFS10"
