Director Biography - Sebastian Crump

Wrote, directed and edited a short film this year for my Junior year of High School. Really happy with how it turned out and just putting "The Transaction" out there for people to experience.

Director Statement

Rules I gave myself for making my first high school student film that wouldn't seem like a high school film:

1) Don't shoot any of it at a high school

2) Don't cast any high school aged actors in the film

3) Don't work with any classmates so you don't have to compromise

4) Sound is just important as the picture

My senior year is starting soon and I'm looking forward to filming my next project that promises to be different.
