About

Geoff

Geoff is a writer, producer, and a consultant on the business side of film and new media. He is third from the middle.

He was the Bernie Brillstein scholar at NYU where he received both his MFA & MBA. Some of his projects — features, docs, shorts — have debuted at Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, and other supportive places. Some won prizes like the Grand Jury at SXSW. Some go on different kinds of screens whether in galleries or on walls or in your pocket. Some are still in the works but go on nonetheless. And some projects don’t have stories by design (rather than failure) and are instead business models aimed at making a pretty big range of storytelling possible and profitable given how quickly tastes and platforms (ugly word) dance about.

This might sound disparate. He might disagree: It is to work with people and stories. That'll come more into focus once this website fattens up.

Of course he is also a person with persony things, like a country of origin and belonging (Hong Kong), a city of residence (Berlin), a handful of memories (those diamonds they scatter in the pavement in New York), and some adventures (like riding a bicycle across the States). He has many favourite films, particularly those of Louis Malle and Bill Forsyth. As this is the start of a courtship, he made you a mixtape.

Feel free to reach out with your questions and thoughts and favourite films. Geoff has made quite a few mistakes and is always happy to talk about them. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This Site

This site doesn't track you. Your very presence is flattering, and it wouldn't be right — it isn't right — to stalk you by way of thanks.

That shouldn't pass for principle or courtesy. It should be the norm. Could you imagine a world where someone feels good for not following you home, not rummaging through your receipts, not poking around your fridge (do eat more vegetables), not pestering your friends, and then not selling off what he's found to a Californian? Don't bother. Just look.

It is possible the few YouTube embeds here might work their evil on you. If so, Google has made assurances that's only when you press play. Should you sign up for the odd email, your address (and only your address) is held strictly entre nous.
