I've been a filmmaker most of my life, my passion, my need, my want to make a positive difference for others through my stories.
In my young career as I was starting out as a camera operator and directed my first film that won an award, my life was changed in a flash of a second when two youths both stabbed me and left me for dead, bleeding across the pavement.
Im still here, I have the scars, nerve damage, and slight limp to remind me of the value of life and how important it is to try and make a difference for others.
I continue to explore and make my films and Im now known as a smartphone/iphone filmmaker and for over 10 years I continue to train and help disadvantage youth through filmmaking skills.
For me this website is about offering the opportunities for anyone to learn some basic skills in story telling and filmmaking using their mobiles - this technology has opened up a whole new world of filmmaking that crosses all communities with no judgment. Its a revolution.
