Founder of Automat Pictures, producer of non-fiction entertainment (TAB HUNTER CONFIDENTIAL I AM DIVINE, HBO Documentary Films' VITO), looking to share two decades of experience.
I've learned a tremendous amount over the past two decades producing and directing non-fiction entertainment and would like to share my experience with filmmakers. I'm offering private documentary consulting services for any stage of production. If you are looking for advice, perspective, guidance, real-world solutions, or a shoulder to cry on I can help. I've often said to myself, "I wish somebody had told me about this before I started!" Hopefully I can be that guy for you. Whether you are a first time filmmaker with a great idea for a doc, or have a gold statuette sitting on your mantle, it can help to have an outside perspective.
Consulting services include but are not limited to the following areas:
Proposals & Treatments
Archival & Stock Footage
Production Staff & Crew Referrals
Releases and Deal Memos
Fair Use Practices and Clearance
Social Media & Marketing
Editing & Post Production / Delivery
Rough Cut Review & Feedback
Sales & Distribution
Film Festival Strategy
