I got to work with my friends from Element 151 on their SFI project “Five Proof”. I played Shawn, a kid in high school coming to terms with his identity and where he fits in society. The shoot was very technical and required a lot from me and the other actors, beyond just learning lines. I have high hopes the final project will be stealer in production value.
Taken from Element 151’s site: “THE SUMMER FILM INITIATIVE WAS ESTABLISHED TO PROVIDE A REAL LIFE FILMMAKING EXPERIENCE TO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN SAN JOSE, CA. OUR GOAL WITH THE PROGRAM IS TO OFFER A HANDS ON INTRODUCTION INTO THE WORLD OF INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING IN HOPES THAT A HIGHER EDUCATION IN FILMMAKING WILL BE PURSUED AFTER HIGH SCHOOL.“
