At a young age Neal shot his first films on the Fischer Price PXL2000 he had received as a christmas gift from his family. Some how he had realized that Hershey’s chocolate syrup could be perceived as blood in the black and white medium, hence his first film fell into the thriller genre. Later Neal would experiment with and pull off more sophisticated in camera SFX in his music videos. As a young adult, Neal became a still photographer, which eventually came back full circle and he applied all that he had learned from stills to motion pictures.
Neal believes in light, shadow and above all, a good story.
