Maurice Vellas, an import from College Station, Texas, has been welcomed by the local film community with his native politeness and obsessive love for cinema. His dedication is the reason we have all decided to help him out with his very personal project, Right Now a Moment. Vellas is an aspiring director who’s worked as a freelance grip, camera assistant, and cinematographer. Most recently, he’s worked as a camera operator for a new adaptation of Macbeth (2015) dir. by Angus Macfadyen, while still attending VCUarts Cinema. His goal for this film, his directorial debut, is to create a work that explores the feelings of isolation, disconnection, and longing that permeate an aging city at a moment of tension and change.
