Meet Everyone Involved...
TIME PULSE is a true Indie film, shot with a small professional crew
and a modest privately funded budget. Producer Jason Shuler kept the production running on schedule, casting director, Kim Swanson found us an amazing group of actors. DP, Paul Deorio’s lighting and photography made the most of every location, Sound mixer, Brian Matte and his team captured each actor’s Performance under difficult conditions and Kari Koerper's make-up department delivered talent to the set on time.
My Post Production team not featured here on the poster deserves equal praise, Editor, Justin Hynous - Sound Designer, Matthew Downey, Post Production Producer, Michael Lavoie, and Post Script coordinator, Katey Clausen were a fantastic team as we Put the movie together.
Working with this cast and crew was truly the best directing experience of my career. I’m so proud of the performances that the actors and I discovered together, as we brought the script to life. I am equally proud that we stayed on budget and on schedule throughout the production which was not easy. There were some hard days but we made them.
Regarding the actors - I wouldn’t change anyone; each and every actor delivered the exact performance I was seeking - If our audience doesn’t like their performance,
it’s my fault. Blame the writer and the director - I’m guilty of being very happy with this movie; TIME PULSE.
