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?

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.
