Fresh off a huge 16 day shoot, I chat with filmmaker Tony Franklin
. He started as an art director, working for Target’s in-house creative department. Now he has quickly and successfully transitioned into a full-time commercial filmmaker. Tony shares his journey with us. We discuss the crucial decisions around when and why to sign and why not to sign with a commercial production company, as well as how to measure if you and the company are a good fit. We also discuss craft, and how he gets natural performances out of non-actors. We’re like minded, as we both always want to get a new spot for the reel.
Enjoy this Tony Franklin spot, his director’s cut for Academy Sports:
