EN - Cartoon head only.png

I was twelve before I understood showgirls, elephants, and magicians and filmmakers were not common childhood companions. 

At ten I was running coffee for Fox Pictures as a production assistant.

At fourteen I rode horseback across California and Nevada for the Pony Express.


By eighteen I produced my first independent feature documentary.


My degree is a Master’s in life experience earned producing films, interviewing rockstars, writing screenplays, fundraising for nonprofits, and helping people tell their stories.


What’s yours?

Call The Mountains Down (official 4K)

Call The Mountains Down (official 4K) Lyrics: Call The Mountains Down Time without consequence is time not worth taking and life without confidence is life that you're living throw off weary somnolence, my bones, feel them shaking from such divine provenance is all this we're given The sun in your eyes and the weight of your burdens persist when you hide and you've shuttered the curtains all faded, the days when you'd barter and bargain now reap the poor weeds that have grown in your garden And I do know you and I have known you The road you're unwinding leads back to the thread of the path that our mothers and fathers have tread the songs that you sing aren't the songs of your home now reap what poor weeds in your garden have grown And I do know you and I have loved you time without consequence is time not worth taking mistakes and regrets are your own for the making throw off your old ways, it's far time you were waking your hearth won't be warm til your fire is blazing Call The Mountains Down ---------------------------------------- Devin Sinha on acoustic guitar, banjo, and lead vocals Wren on backing vocals Betsy Tinney on Cello Aaron Fishburn on upright bass Additional instrumentation performed by Dylan Fant CAST Young Man: Devin Sinha Astronaut: Maxwell Swet Father: James Pinto II Mother: Karen Ostheller Knight in Armor: Joe Meyer Wild West Cowgirl: Maria Rybakina Gutshall CREW Music: Devin Sinha Director: Collin Joseph Neal DP / MoVI Operator / Editor: Sam Nuttmann Writer / Producer: Erin Neal Producer: Dustin LaBrasseur Assistant Director: Danielle Sparks 1st AC / Aerial Photography: Garrett Devin Meyers Visual Effects Artist: Maxwell Swet CGI Artist / Production Design / Props: Phillip Poling Roto Artist: Josiah Poling Hair / Makeup: Talitha Vanzo Makeup Assistant: Lorne Sanford Lighting Technician: Richard A.
