GENERALIZING SPECIALIST | FILM AND MEDIA PRODUCTION

"Generalizing Specialist" is not a film and media term, but rather, a term from the Agile software development model. It has come to mean an individual who has one or more particular areas of deep expertise, but also has experience in a large number of adjacent areas. My professional life has yielded 20 years of wildly diverse experiences in film and commercial production, performance, photography, creative support services, and even publishing. Take a look - let's work together.

SPECIALTIES

HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHY / RETOUCHING

I create headshots for on-camera talent working in regional and national film and television and for professionals from all walks of life. I shoot and edit for actors repped locally in OKC, regionally throughout the southwest, and nationally in LA and NY.

ON-CAMERA VOCAL PERFORMANCE COACHING

I assist acting coach Michelle De Long with the creation of nationally competitive video auditions for film and television projects. I coach vocal performance for camera, a niche discipline which combines general musical technique with specific on-camera performance skills and adjustments. I work with represented on-camera talent of all ages and experience levels.

CASTING | PRINCIPALS AND EXTRAS

As a casting associate at Actors Casting & Talent Services, I facilitate the hiring of on-camera talent for films, commercials and video projects. I create job postings, organize casting sessions, screen and edit video auditions, participate in negotiations, create deal memos, and distribute employment documents.

ON-SET BACKGROUND COORDINATION

I receive background talent when they arrive on set, process all employment paperwork, collect supporting identity documents, and facilitate on-set movements.
