About Me

United States
Member Since: May 2, 2007
Occupation: Video Editor, production assist.
My Bio
I love to talk and express myself. I tend to make a show of it... And I want you to know that I love you all for giving a shit so much as to continue reading on... I take interest and have had my hand in just about every arena of media and mass communication you can wrap your head around. For this reason, I enjoy helping other people learn new things related to mass media, as well as relishing in collaborating with other folks who can help me along in learning and getting my foot in the door within the industry. I also dig writing, and if a job in that area came along it would be rad as well. Additonally, Ive been getting in touch with my performance side as of late...Let me put it this way: Im no real stand up act or spoken word artist, but I dont often turn down an open mic or an opportunity to speak and make you laugh, and I dont really consider myself an entertainer, although I try my best to keep things entertaining! I work at a TV station, helping out and editing cool videos. I also volunteer at some smaller stations in off hours and do freelance and independant stuff too! I just met filmmaker Kevin Smith, whom is a big inspiration - which gets me stoked for my future projects! I'm a goofy ARTIST in general, and creative writer. I heart weight training and occasionally cardio. Kids, follow your dreams! Unless your dreams include smoking crack and stealing car stereos...Then, dont do it. "Part Soul Enigma, part charismatic creator, Mike OTooles artistic energy and sharp wit demands the attention of the underground. Arguably the hottest free agent on the creative counter-cuture scene, he draws, sculpts, writes poetry, is an aspiring DJ and musician, and thrives off making videos that mimic only the highest, happiest trip that youve ever been on."
What are some things you're doing to help make this film?
I'll be promoting The 1 Second Film in any print articles, blogs, videos, TV shows or podcasts I work on from here on out.
Why are you supporting The 1 Second Film project?
Having worked in public access television, I have a great interest in media studies and how we can use media to bring people to together, to explore and celebrate our unique talents, etc.

Mikeotoole's Perfect Moment

If you had to choose a 'perfect moment' from your life to make into a one-second film, what would it be?

I don't think its happened yet - and I'm all the happier for that.

Hey dude,
Do you know of other producers on the1secondfilm from the Boston area? I'm trying to go through each producer on the list, but it's taking a while. I want to get a group of us to go out and promote the film sometime, with flyers and stuff. Just curious if you knew of other Boston peeps on here already.

Off hand I don't know other folks from the area who are on the site. However, I do know some cats from Emerson and around here who would be interested in helping out, kids who've done PA work and the like.

hey guys, i just want to say that i'm stoked to see our producers organizing something like this.

i wish we had a better search function for you all to make it easier to connect- it's on a long list of things to do, but we don't have the resources right now. mostly just fixin the bus and trying to get aready for our road trip.

that said, i did a search for producers in boston: http://the1secondfilm.com/search/node/%22city%3A+boston%22+type%3Ausernode

try adding any producers in the boston area to your crew and leaving them a comment. could also try starting a Boston Crew in our forum- conversations are slow there, but at least it's a bit more public than profile comments, so you never know.

reaching out to friends to help is a great idea- that's what i'm doing out here. another thing to try is craigslist- just post an add in your local area describing the project and an open call for volunteers. Facebook and MySpace are worth a shot as well.

also check out Andrew Harrington: http://the1secondfilm.com/producer/7276

He is in Massachusettes and indicated he would like to get more involved.

hope this helps. you guys rock.
