Noah Scott was sitting in a walk-in freezer when he spoke with me the other day.
Granted, the freezer wasn’t turned on — apparently decommissioned walk-in freezers make great sound recording studios — but still, he said it smelled a little weird.
Said freezer is part of a startup accelerator and co-working space called the Expert Dojo, where Noah — director, producer, and founder of the film production company LA REELS — brings his film expertise to bear.
But film expertise is actually pretty new in Noah’s life.
It all started with a 500 km walk across Japan about five years ago, and a spontaneous decision to film that walk with his iPhone.
He tells this story, and what happened afterwards, in our conversation. It kept me on the edge of my seat! Have a listen.
Noah‘s directorial debut feature film, “Scramble,” a Pulp Fiction-esque indie action, releases Fall 2017 through Gravitas Ventures. Additionally, he produces inspirational spoken word videos for Project Spaghetti Wall and continues to serve brands and clients in creating professional video content.
Noah prepared this worksheet with everything you need to shoot video at home, from gear to shooting tips, to how to talk on camera.
So cool! Thank you, Noah!
From Melissa: MedicAlert
I’ve been wearing a MedicAlert bracelet since I had my tonsils and adenoids out when I was in kindergarten. I had a reaction to one of the drugs that they gave me, and have had to wear a bracelet ever since (it’s how I learned to tell my right from left when I was a little kid!)
This is the style I wear now.
