It's been almost two years since I first started working with director Daniel F. Cardone on Desert Migration. This was my first feature length documentary and a very intense experience. Since I couldn't work on it full time, another editor took over and got much of the structure in place. Then I came in at the end and finished the film. I am very proud of the work that I did, and very excited to see the film get selected for festivals.
Desert Migration premiered at the Frameline Film Festival to a packed Castro theater. It was such a thrill watching it with an audience and seeing how they experience the film. It was also interesting to hear the kind of questions people had after the film.
Since then, the film has played at Outfest Los Angeles and Cinema Q Denver. The next upcoming screening is in Austin.
