Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham says, “When the 1st AC of the first shooting weekend Giorgio Savona couldn’t make our upcoming final shooting weekend for Abandoned, I had to find someone to do the job.
I believe we found another special talent who can help us. Leftonred (that’s actually his name) or “Lefty” is a multi-talented guy who totally understands the art of photography and should be a big help for Director of Photography Adrian Popescu. Not only has he been shooting stills and video for most of his life, he is also a Steadicam Operator, which will definitely be an asset in helping achieve my vision for this film. Lefty has a real positive attitude which is something I always look for in crew members and plus he really wants to work on Abandoned.”
Leftonred, is a still photographer and Steadicam operator. Vacuum cleaner dis-assembler at age 5, solo operation of a ski resort’s concession stand around 15 or 16, apprenticeship in a woodworking/cabinetmaking shop, machine builder, machinist, tool and die maker, sheet metal mechanic, QC inspector, QC manager, project manager for robotics manufacturer all while working his way to get a Mechanical Engineering degree at SUNY Stony Brook, aerobics instructor, personal fitness instructor, racquetball and squash teacher, record store owner, partner in wholesale distribution to record stores, IT consultant for 25+ years, Table Tennis coach, social media strategist, craft beer website listings creator, photographer, videographer. It goes without saying he’s been around a couple of blocks a couple of times and says he always has fun doing what he does:)
