EDWIN M. FIGUEROA CINEMATOGRAPHER FOR “STASH”
I am positively elated to announce that Edwin M. Figueroa will be my Director of Photography for “Stash.” First of all, Edwin has a wealth of experience behind the camera serving as a cinematographer for over 20 years. Better than that is his skill for creating rich texture with deep contrasting lighting and composing cinematic framing. He’s an artist, not to mention director and totally gets the economic limitations we are facing but won’t let that stop him from producing great work. This is a huge victory for my vision of “Stash” being realized. I’m super psyched to collaborate with Edwin.”
Look at Edwin’s reel as picture proof:
Zachary Atlas chosen to create “Stash” documentary
I’m happy to announce the I’ve found a talented, young filmmaker named Zachary Atlas to document the making of “Stash.” My friend Frank Fuina referred him to me. After speaking to Zach, it became obvious he was the guy to shoot and edit together a making of piece that will be a special feature on the release of our movie. I’ll let Zach tell you more.
My name is Zachary Atlas, I’m just your average ordinary guy who grew up on Long Island with a passion for filmmaking. I’ve had a passion for filmmaking ever since I was 7 where I discovered the eligibility to capture real life events in real time with the help of a camera. In high school, I had the lucky opportunity to enroll in a college level film course, where I received hands on technical and physical training with highly advanced equipment. Most importantly, we were taught all the skills and assets needed to survive out in the field. As a young filmmaker in college, I plan to take my strengths as a director/cinematographer/editor and take them with me everywhere I go in hope for a career out in the professional world of filmmaking.
