Freelance filmmaker based in Toronto, Canada.
Currently engaged in the production of various television series for whomever I happen to be working with on any given day, week or month and am a hands-on techie grunt in the media trenches on about 20-30 productions across the media spectrum in any given year.
An idea worth spreading
We need to bury the hand that feeds me -- traditional broadcast media and its top-down, high jolt per minute commercial content model. There are new ways to structure our televisual media experiences that have yet to be tried. TED is on the right track with their content....
I'm passionate about
Finding ways to enable change in the world -- and working feverishly to find ways to do it on the web when I'm not parenting, working for other people or daydreaming....
Talk to me about
Freelance documentary field production. See my work at thechangeseries.com (I hate this web site) I created the video content as an experiment only.
People don't know I'm good at
Content creation; The broadcast 'brain trust' is caught up in a dead game; The web is where its at;
My TED story
TED is at the cutting edge of defining new models of video content delivery that is not based on a 'high jolts-per-minute' broadcast model which excites me as a documentary filmmaker and content producer. I advocate a 'healing media' approach. Talk to me more about this if you want as it's too much to get into in this bio.
I'm currently working with local NGOs and non-profits to upload 'broadcast-styled' content.
There are exciting new paradigms of content portals to explore on the web that broadcast would never allow in their tight format restrictions.
