The Cinefamily is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization of movie lovers devoted to finding and presenting interesting and unusual programs of exceptional, distinctive, weird and wonderful films. The Cinefamily's goal is to foster a spirit of community and a sense of discovery, while reinvigorating the movie-going experience. Like campfires, sporting events and church services, we believe that movies work best as social experiences. They are more meaningful, funnier and scarier when shared with others.

Taking tickets at the door, ushering, collecting emails, bar tending, documenting, editing...working at the Cinefamily is always fun and different.

I recently helped P.A. a production for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim featuring Adam Scott (Parks & Rec) and Paul Scheer (The League) with Lance Bangs directing.
