'Terp is an AFI Cycle Three short film, shot over three days - one day on location for exteriors and two days on a soundstage for the tent interiors. The script also called for a latrine to be built and aged to bring to the military camp location. The art department budget was approximately $600 and included lumber, paint, the tent and other military rentals, and medical prop rentals, and I managed a five-person crew.
Silence is an AFI Cycle Two short film, shot on location over three days. We rented a penthouse apartment and built an elevator on location to transform it into a floor of an apartment building. The art department budget was approximately $1100 and included construction materials, paint and set dressing and prop rentals, and I managed a six-person crew.
Your Girl is an AFI Cycle One short film, shot on a soundstage over four days. The setting is a NYC apartment building turned brothel.
