I recently won an award for Best Cinematography for a documentary short film I was Producer/Director/DP/Editor. I was then called by Dean Semler (oscar winner for Cinematography on Dances with Wolves), Apacolypto and many more. I was absolutely thrilled he called me, as I met Dean in film school in MT, while he was directing. Dean was so down to earth, friendly, interested in me and this little film, as I was of his career, he was terrific to just talk too....I've met some and worked with some extreme ego's and narcissists in my career, but his genuiness really spoke volumes to me.....truly a pleasure

All the really good DP,s I have met are like that.. no ego.. will help anyone..down to earth.. they have self confidence and therefore dont need to be an arse.. and are very free with their knowledge.. no secrets ..

Thank you gentlemen very much. I hope we all can be super successful on our individual paths. A dream was to be invited in to the A.S.C., but that's what dreams are made of
