Meet Inglewood Filmmaker and Photographer: Andrew Moore

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Moore.

Andrew, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Always fond of taking pictures. Had to be like five or six, my parents bought me a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 110 film camera. The pictures would develop with a figure of Michelangelo on the print. ( I eventually ripped the transparent film that would create the ninja turtle and take pictures without it) And throughout my life I’ve always had a camera around me.

But honestly, it wasn’t until college where I decided to follow up on my love of movies to gain a real interest in Photography. It was a prerequisite for some film classes I needed. But I ended up in the Cal State Northridge Darkroom more times than I probably should have been. The darkroom was like meditation for me. Time flew by. I still use film and develop my own every blue moon in my bathroom shower.

I love to travel. But it’s funny when people say that but never take the time to explore their own city. There’s been a couple trips in downtown Los Angeles where I’ve taken pictures and gone home to research the deep history of the buildings and their murals.

Has it been a smooth road?
A personal obstacle that I’ve heard many artists go through is not getting bored with your own work. A lot of times I’ll feel like my work isn’t elevating enough. I have tons of negatives and files that I have gone back and found new interest in that I didn’t initially. So for me, I try to tell myself to just keep shooting, even if you can’t see the greater purpose or nostalgic feeling behind it at the moment.

So, what should we be on the lookout for, what’s next in store for you?
As far as photography, continue to shoot, and exhibit my art. At the moment continue on Tumblr and other social media. But I’ve been looking into other ways to show my photography. IE various public venues.

In all my plan has always been for my filmmaking to help grow my photography and vice versa. So currently been working on producing and putting out various short films

Any big changes… Consistency.

Let’s go backward a bit – can you tell us about the most trying time in your career?
Multitasking has always been an issue. Or should I say taking it slower. In particular, letting clients know before starting a project that you have other projects that need to be finished.

There have been a few times where I’ve taken on too many projects and I’ll be sitting in front of the computer with Final cut, and Photoshop open trying to juggle between the two. I’ve learned that all projects need my full attention. So letting clients and friends know I have THIS to do. And putting my all into it. Then moving on to the next.

Are there days when you feel like you’ve done everything you wanted to, careerwise – the “I’ve made it” kind of moments?
I wouldn’t say “made it”, but one while I had decided to post my pictures from each season (ex. summer, fall) and seeing the responses from those pictures and at the same time putting out music videos was a moment I look back on and say I could do this for the rest of my life. While at the time it probably was high anxiety, but seeing the finished products was always gratifying.
