“Takes Two to Hustle” is my latest film. It is shot on 16mm and Mini-DV. The process for this film was an incredible learning experience; from pre-production, shooting, and editing – definitely my biggest production so far. I believe the best decision to get my vision on screen was the choice of shooting it on film – a quality and “look” that NO digital camera can match. I am inspired by Seventies cinema – just to name a few: “Mean Streets”, “Taxi Driver”, “Rocky” and shooting 16mm was the perfect choice and I wish to continue with this medium. Long live film!
