The Greek Secret

I was hired again by The Washington Oxi Foundation, this time to make a short film about the Greek word Philotimo. I co-directed the film with the organization founders, Andy Manatos and Mike Manatos. I also filmed the opening scene, edited and created all the motion graphics and conducted most of the interviews, including George Stephanopoulos, Arianna Huffington and His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios. Jake Swantko was the dolly camera operator on all of those interviews as well as the b-roll footage of the chapel. Special thanks to Richard B. Smith, who also ran camera on those interviews as well as much, much more.

After I interviewed George Stephanopoulos, I asked him to sign my copy of The War Room. He wrote, “Good luck with your doc career.”
