The Impact of your contributions will significantly help increase the production value of this work. I aim high in style and story with my projects and every penny counts. You will become an active partner in the project with any amount of contribution and this is not only a special role to play, but it's totally awesome to become part of the filmmaking process. I know with the hundreds of crews that I have worked with over the years that everyone there on all size crews was so grateful to be a part of the experience. 
Risks & Challenges are very real in the movie business and also the art business. Early on in my career, I became an excellent problem solver, mix that with an amazing story teller and savvy sense of business and the risk factor goes into a predictable and manageable arena. I’ve played this game a long time and one of my favorite parts to storytelling is the problem-solving part. Check out some of my successes on my website.
