HOW I MADE MY FIRST MOVIE - Part 1 of a behind-the-scenes look at making my first feature film.

Making movies is hard. Here's a chance for you to learn from my mistakes. In this video series, I will peel back the curtain on making Backlash, my first feature film.

Armed with a fist-full of credit cards, a fantastic group of friends, and zero experience, I set out to make a full-length movie that would ultimately find distribution and sell into markets around the world.

Hooked on telling stories early in my life, I began to program text-based adventure games while still in high school. Patterned after early Infocom game titles as Zork and Planetfall, my buddy Jeff and I wrote, designed, and programmed Agent Incognito, a spy adventure that put you in the middle of the action and gave you a series of choices to determine how the story would unfold. I then studied Computer Science in college before becoming a Studio Guide at Universal Studios Hollywood, and then joining the team that built Back to the Future…The Ride. Working with Steven Spielberg, Bob Gale, Rob Letterman, Peyton Reed, Dave Cobb and JJ Abrams, along with the team at ZM Productions, I produced and directed an extension for the attraction queue line.

From there, my boss Steven Marble encouraged me to follow in the footsteps of Robert Rodriguez, who had just debuted El Mariachi, a film that he shot for $7,000, as documented in his book, Rebel Without A Crew.

And so began the roller-coaster journey of making Backlash, an action-thriller inspired by actual events. Hopefully, this video series will give you some insight into the process of making a movie that will inspire you in your own filmmaking journey, and hopefully save you some heartache along the way!
