SCREENWRITING PANEL OF SPEAKERS
I live in Wisconsin, but
I love to shoot in Oklahoma. I've made 10 films there, ranging from 4-minuters to Features, in the last 3 years. I'm
planning another Feature shoot down there at the end of September.
By "made," I mean that I was the Writer and a Producer
in addition to being an Actor. In most cases I was also the Director. I "learned" directing by watching and working with Ted
Roesgen, Heidi Priddy, Todd Roberts, Damon Blalack, Oscar Ray, Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau,
Daniel Messer, Christopher
Mihm and others.
