Expert cinematographer. David now only shoots for his own projects, directing assignments or those projects requiring his own special visual effects work. (Photo "Saturday Morning", which David also directed, Universal Pictures/ Vivaldi)
David is one of the best there is when it comes to quickly "directing on paper". David does not use "storyboard apps" which have a stiff and lifeless feel which translate poorly onto the stage or location. "Loose but tight" as the old saying in illustration goes, and David's precise but expressive drawing styles get everyone on the same page to realize any production fast and effectively.

Be sure to read David's movie reviews and editorials regarding motion pictures on Films In Review, the oldest and most prestigious name in motion picture journals, founded by a group of famous Hollywood actors and other creatives in 1909 to combat censorship. This is not a "re-boot" of FIR, this continues the original unbroken FIR running for over 112 years.
