Sweet Good Fortune – Feature Film

July 1, 2005 — Leave a comment


The feature length film “Sweet Angevine” holds a very special place in my heart. It was the very first production job I ever landed. This film is what catapulted my life into Film and set me on the path of doing production sound. It was entirely shot on the Eastern Shore of Virginia in the summer of 2005, principal photography lasted nearly 2 months, and it paid nothing. I loved every bit of it!

To hear the full accounting of how I landed this monumental first gig, see the story posted here:

A linux web hosting administrator, a professional production sound man, and a renegade cop without nothing left to lose.... Ok, that last part is made up. In all seriousness, my passion in life is to help people; whether that be with help running their sites or with their productions. The name 'Boom Shadow' was given to me by a great group of filmmakers called Star Wipe Films. back in 2005 and has been with me since. I hope my site is helpful to you, and if there's something you need, drop me a line!
