Drugs, Booze & Woes "The Biggest Mistake"

This is a path of familiar dysfunction; you find more enlightenment while you walk through the valleys in the shadows, a familiar spirit, whose job is to consume your thoughts with negative thinking…
Sucked in and forced to engage while looking for a doorway out.

Director Biography - David Molino

David Molino started his career in Burbank California as an offline/online editor cutting music videos at the heyday and birth of MTV. It was the days of Grass Valley, CMX & Convergence for those who remember. He went on to become one of the first to operate the AVID Media Composer, AVID Film Composer, Media 100, Ediflex and a host of others. A new industry was born and he was on the cusp of a new generation of post production. There were no classes, everything that was learned happened in the field, the hands on grind of the day to day pressures of Hollywood deadlines, with a new technology.

After years of faithful service, Molino went into the film sector as a film editor, editing on AVID’s Film Composer and matching back to negative using keycode and edge numbers. From there graduating to Post Production Supervisor, overseeing the workflow of nonlinear post production, to the final delivery of a 35mm printmaster.

Engineering played a major role in his career advancement, there were few could assemble and disassemble a workstation, troubleshoot and problem solve system failures of very complex media servers, deploy and integrate Pro Tools software and hardware, lock to 24 or 23.98 frame playback, administer system configurations related to very complex video playback engines, while under the pressure of daily deadlines. He was the one to call with real answers and solutions.

South Florida became his new home, with it limited opportunities for a person of his vast experience in film and television. Working as an engineer at EUE Screen Gems and Editor/Engineer at international ViaCom in Miami, allows him to remain plugged in to the industry as a industry professional. He has finally started his journey as a Writer, Producer, Director.

Molino set his sights on storytelling, his true passion is the art of doing, and doing is what he has done for the last five years. With four films under his belt and two more in production, a few awards, one can say for sure that he is determined to make his mark.
