How soon would you like to make your next film project?

The difference between hiring me or going at it by yourself is simple–how much time do you have?

Do you want to be able to get things together so you can begin raising money, writing a script, or going into production right away?

Or are you okay waiting one month…or two, or six…or however long it takes before you can get it together and figure things out on your own?

Hiring me as a consultant on your next film project means having a second set of eyes, a wealth of experience, and a clear path to next steps on getting your film project in the can.

Sure, you might be able to get things done on your own, but why be your own biggest obstacle?

Harry HoudiniIn the early 1900s, Harry Houdini was likely the most famous entertainer in the world.

He was the greatest escape artist who ever lived.

To raise publicity, the day before his show he would go to the prison or go to the penitentiary, he’d have them lock him in a cell, and he would escape.

They would pat him down to make sure he had no implements.

His wife would kiss him for good luck.

Everybody would leave.

Within ten minutes, he’d be out of there.

A small town in Indiana had just built the most modern penitentiary in the world.

They challenged Houdini because nobody could break out of their cells.

Well, the day before one of his shows in Indianapolis, he showed up.

They patted him down, no implements, his wife kissed him, and everybody left.

Now, here’s the secret you didn’t know.

Houdini used to be a locksmith before he was an escape artist.

When his wife kissed him, she would transfer a piece of spring steel, a little piece from her mouth to his mouth.

He would take the spring steel and pick the lock and he would be out of there within ten minutes.

Not on that day.

He’d usually be out in one minute, but he couldn’t get out in five minutes, ten, twenty.

He was there for half an hour.

He was embarrassed.

He was sweating.

He didn’t know what was wrong.

In sheer frustration, he stood up and leaned against the door, and it sprung open.

The door was never locked.

Houdini was his own biggest obstacle.

Do you think just by chance you might be getting in your own way?

You might be telling yourself how difficult that test is going to be when it might not be.

You might be telling yourself how difficult that opponent is going to be when they might not be.

You are telling yourself how difficult that project is going to be, but it might not be.

Don’t make things more difficult than they are–hire me to work with you on your next project to save time and deliver a solid, creative film.

FREE 20 minute consultation

Chat with me about your goals for 20 minutes for free to see if we’re a fit. Standard consulting rates start at $85/hr with a 2 hour minimum; project rates vary depending on the scope of your project and my involvement.

Want to schedule regular consulting sessions? I can offer reduced rates for more and/or longer session commitments. Let me know what you’re thinking and we can chat about a special discounted rate.

Why is there a two hour minimum? While there is a lot of work that can be done in an hour, the key to growing as a filmmaker or an actor is being able to retain the information you learn and begin to implement it on your own. By scheduling two sessions, we can make sure that you’re able to do these things over a period of time (and not just during a one hour session). Part or all of a second session is always spent on review of what was covered during the initial session, and then we can explore additional topics as time allows.
