How did you become part of this film project?
Pam also gave me guidance to a calling I had no idea about…audio engineering. She pretty much demanded I research schools for this trade, and I did. After graduating high school I took off to the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences, where I graduated with a diploma and certifications in audio engineering and other industry wide standards.
After a grueling six months of an internship
at the Cutting Room Recording Studios, NYC, I returned home to Colorado
Springs in search of GAINFUL employment (time to pay off student loans!!).
A few months past my return, Pamela Jones contacted me in hope I would
assist her in the audio/music creation for a film she was about to film.
My only response, “I’d be honored.”
I’d probably still be struggling to get Key Elements to a stature
of “local hero”. I can defiantly say I am involved in this
project, because I believe in Pamela and her work and I KNOW she believes
in my work and me.
What is your day job?
Have you always been interested in filmmaking? Please explain.
Yes. Ever since “Cycle7” in school in Arizona, I have been interested in the audio dept. of filmmaking. It can get very intricate and sometimes silly. For example, watch your favorite movie, did you know that EVERY sound in that movie is either from a sound library in a Hollywood vault or recorded in a studio. Just listen.
Every footstep, the swish of a winter jacket, gunshots, hits to the chest on your favorite action hero, all recorded. And the Union…of score musicians. To watch a full orchestra perform the score to a movie EXACTLY the way it was meant to be is, to say the least, breath-taking.
What is your favorite movie and why?
Boondock Saints (Director: Troy Duffy. Stars: Willem DeFoe, Sean Patrick
Flanery). This is a well put together story about two brothers who go
around killing everyone they think are evil. It’s kind of James
Bond-ish, but real. There’s not much I can say about it without
giving it away. For anyone who is film-oriented, I recommend this movie.
Great shots/transitions/music. See it and you’ll know what I mean.
