Commercials, shorts, feature films - I've been writing since 2000.
(I've actually been writing since I was 6. If anyone is interested, I have a gripping story regarding a bunny and a carrot, that is available for option.)
I've produced* over a dozen indie short films, and an independent feature film, Jules Dongu Saves the World.
(* Producing includes dozens of acting roles, including voice-overs for an alien, a unicorn, and a bottle of vodka, and working in every department from crafty to G&E. Ah, the wonders of indie film!)
I have scouted locations, built and designed sets, and created props and costumes.
(I've also begged, borrowed, and bartered my way onto TWO working steam trains, a Vegas casino, and even Liberace's Mansion!)
