I've been reflecting a lot about filmmaking this past year (2017) and my (sometimes tenuous relationship) to the process. After a protracted lost weekend in Hollywood (2000-2005), where I made limited but interesting forays into screenwriting (with occasional bouts directing shorts and music videos), I worked at a media start-up in Sonoma, CA, where my crew and I produced 40+ narrative short films. Financial demands led to creating industrials and, eventually, a slow fade from the medium.
Now, I'm returning to film as a purely artistic pursuit, which I've written about here and hope to share more as I wade ever closer into the deep end of my cinematic unconscious. — DH
