The name was born on the set of a film project in the picturesque backroads of Camden, Maine. "The adventures of gaffboy and whipping lad" somehow came of this as a way for us to have a little fun on set while working the lights behind the scenes.
Fast forward a few years and the name now reminds me of some amazing experiences: like brisk mornings on the Eastern shores setting up dolly tracks in the dark to "get that shot" of the rising sun, filming for hours on our knees to capture a rolling ball make a perfect strike in a game of candlestick bowling, or working with 8 boys all under the age of 10 in a decrepit house to recreate a story as a prequel to Peter Pan.
It's all about the story.
That's what comes to mind for me when I think of "Gaffboy" Productions—my time learning and perfecting the craft of storytelling and the excitement of seeing the idea move from idea, to a conversation, then to paper, plan, and production. Nothing has changed for me since that time. The best part for me is the look on their face, when you can tell from their reaction that the final cut truly is the final cut. That's the payoff and it's what I aim for with every production.
