Besides taking some film classes in college, I study the craft every time I watch a screening. As a critic and film journalist, I have had hundreds of hours of dissecting movies. I talk to directors, writers, actors, producers, CG artists and have developed an understanding of the process and the language. In February of 2015, I decided to take up acting again. I wanted to rediscover the other side in hopes of becoming a better filmmaker. Oddly enough, I found out I am actually pretty good at the acting thing. I have worked with the best new talent and that also makes me better. I am currently looking for representation. Why is Church Closed on a Tuesday I directed and acted in this short film written by Kyle Lancaster. It was submitted to the 24 Hour Video Race in 2015 and made it to the final round.
