Started a new venture recently: Directing!
I just directed my first short this weekend with a brilliant and amazing cast crew. The film, called “The Catcher” is a high school story about a teen who embarks on a crusade to help a homeless classmate. I wrote it and when my producer friend Carletta S. Hurt of IKAM Productions asked me to direct it, I decided to give it a try.
Many thanks to Richard Wright Public Charter School for Journalism and Media Arts for lending us their space over the weekend of October 7-8. We shot 12 hours on Saturday and 10 on Sunday, and the final product will probably be only about ten minutes! Here are a few pictures from the shoot:
