11-year old Finding Home Director Looking to Advance His Movie-Making
Lincoln Norfolk, of Lincoln Studios, recently premiered his first movie "Finding Home" at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA). This was a 7-month project with friends and family participating as actors and starring his dog Luke. All proceeds of the movie were donated to the Joshua Fund and the LPCA.
Lincoln is 11 years old and is self-taught. He can fly a drone and edits in Final Cut Pro. He shoots his videos and movies with a Canon 7i camera that he saved money for and bought himself. He has used his parents computer to date but is looking to advance his capability and make bigger and better movies with faster processing, rendering and storage capacity. He will migrate to a Windows based custom computer system and use Adobe Premiere and After Effects. He also is seeking to better the stabilization and video quality with an upgraded lens for his camera and microphone.
"My mission is to continue to create feature films, show them in theaters and donate proceeds to organizations that I believe in. My business model is driven by my YouTube views, theatre attendance and success with movie making. I am just beginning therefore I hope to develop more of a business plan in time. I hope with success I will get asked to produce or direct something and perhaps even get paid for my services beyond drone footage. My vision is to advance myself in film making and expand Lincoln Studios to a larger audience."
Lincoln is already planning for Finding Home 2 and a documentary with Andrew Weibrecht. Help Lincoln continue to be creative, make his next movies, shoot for the stars, and maybe even Hollywood!
