Death of a Dream (2017) - Short Film

I directed a short film called  Death of a Dream (2017) which was shot entirely on a 23 foot sail boat! It was a huge learning experience and was some of the hardest days I have ever had on a set. Filming out on the ocean with six crew members, three actors, and two sailors was very challenging! Enjoy!

Death of a Dream is a short film I directed which will be premiering at film festivals in just a few months!

The film is about three young people that go off on a sailing adventure and end up caught in a love triangle abroad their small sailboat. 

This film was extremely challenging as we had 6 crew members, 3 actors, and 2 sailors on board while we were 25 miles out to sea, not to mention all the filming equipment we took with us!

MovieMaker Magazine - Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker 2016: Top 10 Small Cities and Towns

Interview I did with "MovieMaker Magazine" about living and working in Savannah, GA. Click Image to got the article! 

In addition to the excellent Savannah Film Festival and some smaller fests, this July sees the debut of the Big River Film Festival in Savannah. The city boasts several professional film organizations and, as home to the Savannah College of Art and Design, sees plenty of film students eager for work. We spoke to Seth F. Johnson, a recent SCAD grad with a BFA in Film and Television, who is working on a film that will air on TV One.

“There is a fantastic group of filmmakers already living here,” he says. “When I got on my current set, I already knew about a third of the crew. The Savannah Film Office has always been very accommodating, and even took the time to help me find locations while I was an undergraduate. On this film, they have been able to assist me with arranging picture cars, shutting down streets, and even notifying the Coast Guard about our need to fire a flare gun.”

Johnson also loves Savannah’s rich visual possibilities, including the nation’s largest historical district, an urban evergreen forest and boundless coastal and rural settings. “In February of 2015, I directed a short film called ‘One Traveler Too Many,’ which I shot in the historic district. Since the film was set in the 1890s, I was able to utilize the brick roads and the old Victorian homes. Then, in summer, I shot a short drama about three young adults on a sailing adventure called ‘Death of a Dream.’ I only had to travel 15 minutes down the road, and I was able to film in the marsh and in and around the islands.”
