New Short Film in Production

About a year ago I returned to running on a regular basis and on my nightly runs I couldn't help but dream up a short film based on my route. So with scarce personal time available, I've decided to produce, act, and direct a one-man-band short film . As of this update I've already shot on four separate nights, totaling something like three hours of production time. Not sure how the final product will turn out, but I'm having fun with it. If you'd like to follow along, I've created a dedicated subpage here on Responsibly Wild, "No Shortcuts" (the working title for the film). Cheers!

In November, the Cinematic Heartland podcast had me on to talk my filmmaking journey and projects. Hosted by Kevin Isaacson of I like IKE films, it was a really fun hour talking filmmaking and what's my drive to tell stories. Talked about many things I've blogged about, The Film Lounge series on Iowa PBS, and much more. If you've got an hour, download my episode and listen on your next workout, commute, shopping spree, or quarantine cry.

Welcome! I'm a man of many hats. But also many socks, cameras, guitars, and anecdotes. You probably didn't come here for all of that, however this is a jumping off point for any of it. Should you find something here interesting, reach out! I am very a collaborative and friendly guy. I get excited at the prospect of everything from mowing the lawn to climbing a wind turbine. If you have a project you need an extra set of hands on, I know a guy with a good set of hands.

Need to get me a gift?

For some reason I don't fully understand, I have been told I am hard to buy gifts for. That is ridiculous. I have so many interests and hobbies I should be considered the easiest person to shop.

So to make this super simple for anyone looking to buy me a gift, here is my personal amazon wish list. A lot of this stuff is expensive, but if you aren't getting something off that list at least you've got somewhere to jump off from.
