Last week we held our screening for the mixed martial arts TV-pilot Layers. The show stars UFC top 10 bantamweight fighter in the world, Aljamain Sterling, from Showtime’s Ray Donovan, Dominque Columbus, actress Morgan Harvill, and Instagram star Oscar Miranda.

I worked on the project as a Producer, First-Assistant Director, and Editor.

It's been a month since I've posted a new video here but the work hasn't stopped. As I've stated previously I'm working on a documentary involving CTE. We plan to wrap shooting next month and begin the editing process soon after. Here's a couple photos with some recent interviewees, stay tuned!


12-day filmmaking trip

I've returned from a 12-day business trip just a few days ago. I'm finally getting around to writing a blog post about the journey. Where do I start? Well, within 12-days I traveled to 17 states which include California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, and Utah.

I'm working on a documentary with my business partner David Kano about C.T.E. (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). First we stopped at the Cleveland Clinic where we documented the testing done at the clinic, and sat down for some interviews.

Over these 12 days we interviewed MMA fighters, a former NFL player, doctors, and more. One of my favorite days was spending 10 hours with former WBA lightweight champion Ray ‘Boom Boom’ Mancini. Checkout the full MMA Now TV interview below.

Throughout this trip we talked with at least 8 people on camera, and met many more off camera. There’s a lot more I’d like to share about the journey but I’ve got to get back to work! Hopefully, some of the photos below will give you a glimpse of my experience.

The works not over.. still more people to meet, interviews to capture, and of course editing is going to be a huge part of this process. More to come, stay tuned!
