Pinewood Studio's CineGear Show

Pinewood Studios had their annual CineGear event down in Fayetteville, GA yesterday. The equipment technology continues to jump by leaps and bounds. From better camera equipment to the latest state-of-the art lighting, sound, and drone equipment, we were blown away!

The panel of cinematographers who spoke about the technology changes of photography and equipment was amazing. All the professionals on the panel are working on active Georgia productions including “Cobra Kai”, “Lovecraft Country”, “MacGyver”, and “Coming to America 2”.

Magnolia Film Festival

This year's Magnolia Film Festival was a rousing success. Affectionately known as "The Mag", it supports the film industry within Mississippi, another state experiencing film growth. The festival is definitely a regional film showcase event, and was the state's first film festival. Since then, Oxford, Tupelo and Crossroads film festivals have also come a long way.

The President of the festival, Michael Williams, is a friend and collaborator to us. We saw lots of films over the three days, which took place in Starkville, MS. Some good, some great. The venue and volunteers were (and generally are) very friendly. It was well organized and I'm sure we'll be back next year.

Meeting with Association of Media Professionals (AMP)

We were on the Documentary Panel last night (1/31) at the Association of Media Professionals (AMP) meeting. We were supporting our latest documentary project "State-of-Denial".

The documentary is about the extreme marine die-off that has been occurring in Florida. Lots of learning and sharings.

AMP has been a great place for us to network and meet other professional filmmakers. We’ve been able to advance our films due to some relationships we’ve established there.
