Putting together the right team is one of the most critical components of starting any kind of business. It could take days, weeks, months, or even years to find others who share your passion and ambition. We had the good fortune to come across ‘Lewis Carter,’ an award-winning writer and all-around powerhouse.
Lewis’ exceptional creative writing abilities, as well as his ability to turn a mundane subject into something memorable and appealing to the mind, have made him a valuable asset to FRM.
Lewis has won awards for prose fiction, including the novella ‘Memoria Manor’ and the short story ‘Shame Leaves a Mark,’ as well as contributions to a number of other publications. Not to mention our first encounter while shooting on his film ‘Campfire Story,’ which was named Best National Film at the Swansea Film Festival.
I approached Fine Rolling after finishing the screenplay for ‘Campfire Story.’ After reading the present content, Kristian answered with an impassioned email, even suggesting songs for a soundtrack. After our initial meeting, we decided to move forward with Campfire and even decided to handle it jointly because it was clear that we were on the same creative page.
My transformation into Fine Rolling happened overnight when the film was released. We essentially continued to work on the jobs as they came in. It’s been a pleasure to offer my writing skills to a variety of Fine Rolling Media projects, as well as to branch out into other creative areas such as directing and producing films and videos.
