Welcome to Blog. This blog is dedicated to the learning and practice of independent filmmaking. I look forward to hearing from you as I explore the ins and outs of making films.

You might ask, why another blog? For me the blog is a place to consolidate my learning, share and give back.

About Me

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

A software engineer by trade, I recently made the move to the dark side and became a manager. I’m a practicing Agilist if that is a word and believe in the Scrum process for product development. I signed the Agile Manifesto. That is my day job! My spare time, what I have of it, is devoted to making films. After about 15 or so projects someone asked me, “Can I see your work, is it online?” “No,” I replied. “You don’t have a website?” was the incredulous reply. So this is my site which I will use to weave together the tale of my journey into the universe of film making. One idea that I’d like to explore in this blog is how the Scrum process might be used to make films. I think there are a lot of overlaps. I have even coined the working title for a book, “SCRUM Made My Movie.”
