No Limits No Boundaries – Finished Film

I used to think drug addiction was limited to low-life individuals who had no willpower and didn’t care for others. That is, until I met one. His name was Jeremy and he became one of my best friends – if not the best friend I’ve ever had. He would’ve been 28 on Sunday but on June 8th of this year, he lost his battle with addiction.

If you’d have told me last July that my latest project, No Limits No Boundaries, would’ve turned out the way it did, I wouldn’t have believed you for a second.

However, that week ended up being so much more than I had originally expected. Through this experience, I gained new perspectives, acquired new knowledge, and created new memories. In the midst of this project, there were three major things that stood out to me.

You Chose The Wrong Documentary Topic If…

As any filmmaker knows, sometimes it’s incredibly difficult to make a film that is compelling enough for the viewer to want to pay the $9+ for a movie ticket to go see it and/or to invest their time to watch your film. In addition to this, it’s even more difficult to choose a topic that does just that and is interesting and motivating to you, the filmmaker. Here are two major internal indicators I believe are evident when you choose to cover the wrong documentary topic as a filmmaker.

Making Strides: Fighting For Hope, One Year Recap!

Today marks one year since I officially released my longest documentary short film to date. It’s the most time consuming video project I’ve ever worked on but anyone in the filmmaking industry knows that a project you’re passionate about can be both insanely frustrating and rewarding because when you’re passionate about the content, you want it to be perfect.
