Robbie and Raine chat about staying motivated throughout a lengthly production, using music to help with the writing process, getting funding together for a feature film the Kevin Smith/Robert Rodriguez way.

How both films differed in budget but yet were the same in terms of emotion and making sure the story is key.

We chat how to make a cross-genre film, dealing with investors, casting appropriate actors, working with them on set, allowing them to bring things to the table and should we call this a vampire film?

How he shot in RAW and came up with a unique look for a film in the grade. We discuss the trick to maintaining and building tension by restricting the audience to a single character viewpoint and withholding info to build suspense and should you call your film a vampire movie when their are vampires in it?

An award-winning producer, director and editor, David holds an M.F.A. in Cinema Television from the University of Southern California, studied filmmaking at New York University, acting at Northwestern University, and has a Bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies from the University of Virginia.

David has created programs for Sony Pictures, The Muppets, Syfy Channel, Walt Disney Pictures, 3Net, Fox, Comedy Central, Disney Channel, Tokyopop, Mattel, Universal, Warner Brothers, Baby Einstein, Showtime and more.

David is a producer and a director of the new 3D television series “Dark Secrets,” on cable channel 3Net. He is executive producer, director and editor of the award-winning new media comedy series “Dorkumentary,” starring Adria Dawn, and was editor of the Webby Award-winning Muppets series “Statler and Waldorf From The Balcony,” for Disney. His breakthrough film as producer/director/editor, the gothic fairy-tale “Dinner,” premiered at Slamdance, played on the SyFy Channel, and was released on DVD.

David produced and edited the award-winning feature documentary “What Babies Want,” narrated by Noah Wyle, and its follow-up “Reducing Infant Mortality.” He produced and edited “The Making of Warriors of Heaven and Earth,” and “The Making of Double Vision,” for Sony Pictures.
