Well Done!

Well done to Carissa for doing such a great job that she got hand picked based on her outstanding work for some scenes in dreamworks movie "shes out of my league"

The Shelter

The directors of The Shelter were awesome to work with. Julianne Moore was also a gem. I was one of three to "find the body" (one photographer, one detective and me the cop). So look for me, alan lee in Icon Films "The Shelter".
