Sometime in 2012, I discovered a passion for filmmaking after watching Casey Neistat's 'Make It Count.' In the summer of 2013, tired of my current path, I went out to pursue that passion. Not having any experience or any idea of where to begin, I naturally had a lot of questions. These would serve as the basis for my first documentary.
This was my first serious attempt at filmmaking. A friend mentioned Kickstarter to me, so I launched one (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1407449306/makedo-documentary) and it got funded—then it began.
On July 1, 2013 I packed up the car with my camera gear and spent the next 3 months driving around the U.S. as a one-man crew, interviewing all sorts of creative people. Some were friends, some were family, and many were strangers. The doc road trip took me from San Diego to New Orleans, from NYC to Missoula, from Seattle to LA, and everywhere in between.
