We are not only a film production company based out of Bradenton but moreover we are teachers and mentors to students at Inspiration Academy. We have been associated with this Christian based private school since it first opened almost two years ago. Jimmy is both our director on set and the film program director in the classroom. The remainder of the team assists Jimmy as needed but when the class exits the classroom, which occurs quite often, the students shadow us and fill critical positions. Learning can occur with a book, but as production personnel know it takes trial by fire and hands on experience to understand that going late is a normal occurrence, scripts get altered often, shot lists get turned upside down and rain can ruin a day. With that said, students at the Inspiration Academy Film Program wrote, produced and edited a short film called Second Time Around. On set they filled positions such as 1st assistant cameraman, script supervisor and grip, to name a few.
In regards to our team, Keenan was the 1st AD, Kevin the DP, Eric the lead grip, Jon was on audio, Lauren assisted the students as a producer and Mark was a grip. Each of us had a minimum of 1 student attached to the hip and we couldn’t be more proud of what they created. The film was shot with our RED Scarlet utilizing cine lenses with a full production team and edited in our very own 4k Editing Suite.
