Living in Sarasota

Inside scoop on the film industry in Sarasota/Florida.

I have been living in Sarasota for about 7 years now and just recently started video blogging my life.

A few of my friends are the ones who inspired me to start. I am a freelancer in the film industry as well.

So through these blogs and my video blogs ( i will post links everyday) I will showcase whats going on in the film industry and even show some behind the scenes when possible.

I have been lucky enough to work on some great projects within the last two years.

One being a feature film starring Anna Paquin, called Free Ride. It was filmed in the Sarasota/Venice area for 5 weeks. It was a great experience to be around so many proffesionals in the industry and working with Anna was amazing. She is a really down to Earth person and has alot of passion for her work.

Also one of my more recent and favorite projects was working on a short film called In the Grove, directed by Datev Gallagher. It was filmed entirely in Sarasota and was an official selection this year. It showed at the in the Sarasota shorts category. It was such a great experience working with a group of friends that put their all into making it happen.

You can view the teaser for in the videos above as well as my vlogs on BixbyFilms.
