Creator | Director | Producer

A picture is worth a thousand words; each episode of "Shoot" is a snapshot looking beyond the picture and behind the camera.

 

In an attempt to drum up a headshot-photography business in Boston, Todd (Travis Amiel) commits to offering a small number of free shoots in a makeshift studio out of his apartment, which he offers to a succession of strangers including an anxious conductor, a curt college admission counselor, and an empty-nester father. As Todd’s camera focuses on this revolving door of colorful characters, we also begin to get a clearer view of the circumstances that sent him to Boston, and what his photography is helping him to overcome. Prod. Company: Whatabean Productions
