The Workshop

Learn first the mechanics of Filmmaking

And a disciplined filmmaker will create with confidence

I’ve known Rick for over 20 years. In that time I have had the opportunity to work with him on numerous film projects. In every instance he has proven himself not just a master of his craft, but as a person with a strong work ethic, integrity and knowledge. Producing short-film projects such as Rock Bottom, Angels Wings and Chryzinium are just a few of the simple projects he uses to train the new-to-industry aspiring filmmaker. Something he gladly does, born out of his passion for the craft.

The Power of Monologues

As an experiment, we took a 5/8 page monologue and put it to work. With Lights Camera Action, on a set, as a film production, the test was simple, what can a fairly short monologue become and what value can be garnered from such an endeavor? The takeaway was easy. The Single partial page monologue performed  became a very valuable asset; proving the actor could take words from a piece of paper and breath life into them to the point of creepy. While monologues are often tools used to showcase an actors' talents, they are many times misunderstood as nothing more than pros spilling forth as though competing in a speed-reading contest via Evelyn Wood.
