RJ was one of the Big 3, the people who took the small budget allocated for PYRITE and just said, “You know what, we’re gonna make this work, no matter what it takes.”
And he wasn’t lying. RJ probably went further for PYRITE than any other indie Director of Photography has ever gone for a small budget project. As you’ll see in
the DVD extra, THE BLAZEN PLATFORM, RJ worked with some core Crew to literally build an El train platform in his own backyard!
This film never would’ve been completed properly without his dedication, a true testament to RJ’s character.
He’s currently finishing two screenplays, while shooting an historical corporate documentary, and producing promotional videos for two Chicago area non-profit organizations.
