Can’t describe how I feel watching the trailer for Boy Erased (@boyerased). I had the honor of working on the film as EPK cinematographer/BTS documentarian (EPK: capturing daily behind the scenes footage & interviews w/ cast & crew). Both as a filmmaker & a gay man in the south who experienced a very difficult journey coming of age, I still can’t believe this was the first motion picture I had the honor of working on. This project was personal in the deepest way for me. Read the book, watch the trailer, and support this film - it will change lives.
Wrapped early this morning on the most incredible experience of my life. Over the last 8 weeks I was honored to work as the behind the scenes documentarian on ‘Boy Erased,’ a forthcoming film about gay conversion therapy. In my role I interviewed cast and crew and captured daily BTS content. Given my own struggle coming out, this project had deep personal meaning for me, and I’m awestruck that this is the first major motion picture I’ve worked on. This film, like the memoir on which it's based, will save lives and change minds, and I’m honored to have had a hand in it. So grateful for all the friends I’ve made during this incredible time.
Had such a great time last Saturday capturing Bid Day for Kappa Kappa Gamma at Georgia Southern University!
