So, they have electric street cars in Belgrade, like in San Francisco. There’s a huge park in the middle of the city where they loop around and go in different directions. The park is lined with cafes around the perimeter. Really cool. Except...

I was walking back to my hotel from one of the restaurants, chatting with the director last night when suddenly, my step dropped around two feet. My foot went through an opening between the rail tracks where there was supposed to be a grate. My right leg was subterranean up to my knee! The gap I stepped into was barely wider than my foot and I somehow perfectly stepped into it without injury. For a moment, I was stuck in the middle of a live track, but all is ok with barely a scrape. I was very fortunate.

Fall 2018 Sports Reel

It was a busy fall, spending a lot of time at Fox Sports, cutting promos for several sports properties.

Sports promo editing takes a unique combination of skills, almost always requiring the ability to edit a full-length music track down to :30, integrating motion graphics, and pulling the right action shots out of a multitude of choices. Having the ability to communicate and coordinate with graphic designers and sound mixers is key, as well.

Last week, I got the cool surprise of working with Ice Cube on this :60 and a :30 cutdown for FoxSports. Full disclosure: there was an existing edit that Ice Cube was unhappy with and I was the fixer, so to speak.

Really nice guy and fun to work with.

Trial of Midnight Rider: Railroaded in the Deep South – Midnight Rider Trial Movie

This is something I have been waiting to announce for a long time. Last night, a documentary was released on Amazon, iTunes and Google Play about the entire case surrounding the death of Sarah Jones during shooting on the first day of production of Midnight Rider in 2014.

Since 2005, I have worked with filmmakers Randy & Jody Miller on five films. These films screened before a national theatrical audience, two of them premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and between them all, I worked with three Oscar winning actors, and several other Emmy and Golden Globe winners. Like me, many members of the cast an crew worked on multiple films with Randy and Jody.

Midnight Rider was going to be my sixth film with them. On Thursday, February 20, 2014, I received a call sheet that stated that the first day of shooting would begin late afternoon that day on a train trestle in Doctortown, GA. It was a 90 minute drive to the location, and I didn’t want to wait until the next day to receive the dailies. So, I drove to the set to pick up the video cards after the shoot was over.

I arrived outside the security gate of the Rayonier paper mill as Sarah Jones and several other crew members, including Randy, were running for their lives to flee an oncoming train. Most people know that Sarah died on that trestle, and the cameras never rolled beyond that day.

This tragedy set forth a series of events that for many, fought to strengthen film production safety in Sarah’s memory, and for others rallied an industry to prosecute Randy Miller and Jody Savin, and execute their own form of justice before a trial had ever occurred.

Because of my decade-long relationship with Randy and Jody, I couldn’t believe that they could be so reckless. There are so many personal character traits I know about them that I felt in my heart that they would never knowingly risk everything “just to get a shot”. And after participating in the making of “Trial of Midnight Rider: Railroaded in the Deep South”, my belief is not only confirmed, but I feel that Randy was willfully scapegoated by everyone else who had something to lose if they told the truth.

To all of my friends in the film industry, I beg you to watch this version of the other side of the story. The entire documentary is based upon the sworn depositions from people who are either responsible for Sarah’s death or gave vital material evidence that would have cleared Randy of all responsibility if only the district attorney and police in Georgia did not have a different agenda.

CBGB the Movie - Television's first gig

Working on CBGB was so much fun for many reasons, but a few big ones were Alan Rickman, the music and being able to design over 40 motion graphic transitions in an homage to John Holmstrom from Punk Magazine.

CBGB was the third film I had the honor to edit which Alan Rickman starred in. I am highlighting this scene because of the editing, graphic design and music elements.…
