Spent a steamy day partnering with Haaksman Media to film an on-location segment for Science Channel's "Mysteries of the Abandoned" series in Pine Bluff, Arkansas alongside former owner Kathy Majewska. The Saenger Theater was a marvel of it's time when it opened in 1924 but was eventually replaced by the suburban shopping mall cinema. It'll be a tough sell to get it restored but at least we were able to save it's story!

Worked with Loaded Sky productions on an interview with Patricia Puckett, granddaughter of the boarding house owners https://www.facebook.com/OswaldRoomingHouseDallasTx that Lee Harvey Oswald rented a room from in 1963. She had a lot of personal recollections...this was a fascinating historical recording.

Spent another day in "Jerry's House of Football Woe" last weekend but this time for a Nerf gun battle. This is the 7th year running and they sold 4000 tickets...that's 4000 kids shooting it out this evening. We followed the organizer, Jared, around reality style and I was amazed at what a heart he has for bringing smiles to kids faces with this event. Barely makes a dime but is incredibly committed. Everyone in the ticket line wanted to take pics with him. Who knew this happened at AT&T Stadium?!

Interviews of experts for a Science Channel show. As a one-man-band it's a lot of work to set up but then you get to hit record and let the producers carry the load on Zoom:-) Best part is I like these kind of docu-mysteries so the day was anything but boring.

"F NEWS" short film, satire, nominated for best comedy, best short and best actor

This was a little comedy gem I shot for writer/director/actor Wendy Pennington-Smith early last year. Got everything in the can in one day! It's a fun watch and at only 7 minutes. Glad to see it's done well on the festival circuit and appeared recently on PBS! Special shout out to my 1st AC, Adam Field.

A short film, satire, about a teenage boy fed up with fake news and conspiracies so he invents a device that can, "change the world."

In reviewing admin stuff beginning the year I realized I never post anything. Kinda rude to the 400 of y'all that have liked the page so I promise to do better moving forward! 2021 was a great year with a couple more short films shot, several new (and repeating) clients, and lots and lots of freelance work. The Texas history documentary, http://OnThisSite.TV, that we've been working on for several years stalled with the coming of COVID and we haven't been able to get it back on track with that particular network. Bummer as they actually had sponsors lined up for us. But it appears they've changed the focus of their programming so we'll keep trying elsewhere. Looking forward to another banner year and we hope it's that way for y'all, too!

Greenscreen or chromakey is a great tool to enhance the visuals of your video. But beware the pitfalls of allowing reflected light to ruin your image!

Published: February 25, 2021. Recently a client contacted us needing help improving his home studio set up for Zoom calls. We met on Zoom with him in front of his green screen in a seated, one third-body shot.

Do You Hear What I Hear?: Quality Audio For Your Streaming Videos

If you're Zooming or podcasting you might be surprised to hear the quality of your audio is more important than that of your video...but it IS. I wrote this article to assist in getting the most out of your audio set up.

When we think of video presentations we tend to prioritize the visual elements. I mean, โ€œvideoโ€ is right in the name.

We're all using video conferencing more and more. Here are some tips to use light to enhance your natural beauty:-)

With virus concerns limiting face-to-face meetings more businesses and professionals have turned to video chat services such as Zoom or to video calls via cell phone. While this is a great alternative to being there it comes with some unconscious expectations from the viewer.

I'm very proud to announce our Texas history show, "On This Site," pilot episode on legendary trail driver Oliver Loving was one of four finalists in the "short documentary" category at this past weekend's Lake Travis Film Festival! We didn't win the trophy but with a showing like that for our first effort I think this show has a real future:-) Thanks to fellow producers Jennifer Varela Jodziewicz, and Lance Eakright, the man who gave me the idea Bob Fraley, and special thanks to Devin Connelly of Ethos Media for introducing me to festival organizer Kat Albert at a Dallas Producer's Association event! Things do happen for a reason. http://OnThisSite.TV

Celebrating Quanah Parker Day in Texas - A Call to Honor

Texas celebrated the first "Quanah Parker Day" honoring the last chief of the Comanche Nation on September 14th. We had the fortune of being hosted at a celebration at Caprock Canyon State Park by the State of Texas Anniversary and Remembrance Day Foundation. STAR Day is dedicated to honoring "firsts" in Texas whether events or individuals and are also putting together a fund to support the State Bison Herd at Caprock. We put together this nice little promo about their efforts!

Tom More's Narrative Film Reel 2016

Here's the latest reel of the film and television work we've made in the past few years. While I may create the image I want to acknowledge the Herculean efforts and deep trust the producers and directors of these films put in me to craft their vision. I make nothing if they don't believe in me. So my special thanks goes out to Eric Hanson, Calvin Walker, Natasha Paris-Morgan, Nene Nwoko, Jeramie Wilkinson, Shannon Houk, James LeJeune, Bob Fraley, Tim Sparks, Edgar Arreola, Issa Currie, and Angel Martinez. You allow me to become a better film maker!

Enjoy one of our latest productions featuring a tribute video to a high school turned middle school that has been operating for decades in Little Elm ISD. The building is being closed as a school and repurposed as an admin building in the near future. Our production interviewed staff and former students as they recounted their most memorable moments. Special thanks to RL Film Productions Dallas / Fort Worth for their assistance on this project! We're happy to have produced a creative-type video that has meant a lot to the now 19K viewers. Our portion of this video starts at 1:15. https://www.facebook.com/littleelmisd/videos/2868982599853448/
