Top Director Reddit IAmA's http://www.topiama.com/cat/director The latest Director IAmA's collected from Reddit Director / CrewIamA (Afghanistan Veteran and Filmmaker who documented his experience deploying and the process of returning home. I finally finished my film after 8 years, and published it to YouTube.) AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/5995/iama-afghanistan-veteran-and-filmmaker-who My name is Tyler Owen Morris. I am a former Marine, and a professional video producer. In 2009 I was deployed to Helmand, Afghanistan. I began filming the week I was informed I would be deploying, and now after almost 8 years I have finally completed my first film! "Removed from Reality"

I am told it's quite good, but I'm far too close to it. Several Marines that were on the tour have called it "nostalgic"- which I have taken as a sign that I got something very right about the feeling(s).

I am uncertain to my legal ability to 'sell' the film for distribution, and I really just want people to see my work- so I just put it on YouTube. I hope you watch it, and I hope you get something out of it- I know I got a lot out of making it! Ask me anything!

TLDR; I made a film about the War that I can't sell- so I put it on YouTube.

Director / CrewIamA guy that made a movie called SPLIT, an indie romcom about bowling - not the big budget horror movie of the exact same name AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/5964/iama-guy-that-made-a-movie-called-split-an-indie We pulled together a little money and shot a boy-meets-girl bowling movie in 2012, released it in 2016, only to find out M.Night was releasing a multiple personalities horror movie just a few months later. It has been and continues to be a pretty hilarious ride, AMA!

Director / CrewI'm Jesse Burks a practicing surgeon and horror filmmaker. Two of my short films, ONE PLEASE and CURED, have over 3 million views on CryptTV... AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/5970/im-jesse-burks-a-practicing-surgeon-and-horror Signing off now - thanks for the questions ! I'll drop in tomorrow to see if I've missed any.

I'm Jesse Burks and I have a practice that focuses on surgical reconstruction of the foot and ankle. In 2011 my oldest son, Harley, showed an interest in acting. To support that interest, I bought a simple camera and we started making ridiculous home movies. Since then I've been fortunate to meet several amazingly talented people that have helped me create wonderfully odd, and frequently disturbing, little horror films - films that have played in multiple festivals around the world and on CryptTv. Horror icon Michael Berryman is in both of my films on CryptTv.
