About Aaron

My 10 years of filmmaking experience ranges from producing feature films to YouTube videos. I'm currently employed full-time as Director of Video Production at a major tech start up where I produced over 300 YouTube videos with major celebrities in 2015. One was recently awarded YouTube's 2015 Video of the Year, and was nominated for a Streamy award. To date, the videos I've produced have earned over 100 million views.

I'm currently a guest lecturer for the Producers Guild of America, and have mentored many up-and-coming filmmakers of all ages and backgrounds. I'm patient, thoughtful, humble, and a great listener. I'm here to teach budding filmmakers the entire process from writing to camera operating, directing, producing and editing or just the part you need to know for your current project. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than creating and nurturing the spark for filmmaking.

As a producer, I have worked with some of the biggest and best companies in the business including Marvel Studios, Fox Television, Hallmark Channel, Outdoor Life Network, BBC, Mattel, Microsoft and Acura. I've also produced multiple films, including one that premiered at Sundance. My experience also extends to the deal-making side of Hollywood, as I started in the mailroom of Hollywood's premier talent agency and worked my way up. Since I have my MBA, I'm also able to teach the business side of Hollywood, so you can make sure your movie dreams make sense financially as well.

I've worked with some of the industry's best actors, directors, producers, agents and executives and look forward to sharing everything I've learned with you. I'm also a very adept low-budget filmmaker with extensive knowledge of cameras, equipment and post production. Let me be your guide and filmmaking mentor who empowers you to bring your filmmaking dreams to life.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Film

I've produced YouTube videos with Robert Downey Jr., Channing Tatum, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Daniel Craig, John Legend, Serena Williams, Robert Gronkowski, Harrison Ford and many other celebrities resulting in over 100 million views online.

A feature film I produced premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and played at Toronto, AFI and many more.

I started my career in the mailroom of WME, a top Hollywood talent agency.

I'm a guest lecturer for the Producers Guild of America, the preeminent film & TV producing organization.

Video Production

I'm a producer with over 10 years of experience and have held almost every job on a film set. In addition to producing I am an excellent cinematographer, photographer, sound mixer, teleprompter operator, editor and director.

I've spent a lot of time teaching these skills to others and am excited to tutor aspiring filmmakers of all ages and support them as they pursue their film and TV dreams.

I'm also a pro at producing very high quality video on a tiny budget, which is something that I believe my tutoring clients will benefit greatly from.
