Hello, and welcome to thecliffbailey.com!
My name is Cliff Bailey, I’m approaching 40 and pursuing my dream of becoming a filmmaker (and making a living wage from it). Some of the challenges I’m facing is the work-life balance between my day job, being a husband and father, and then pursuing my passion.
This website is the main portal to the documentation of my journey through videos over yonder on YouTube , some of my projects on Vimeo, my podcasts (Cutting it Close w/Cliff and The Tick Talk Podcast) and where you can follow along via social media if that pleases thee (@thecliffbailey on Twitter, Facebook, and InstaGram).
My main, passion project is a web series called Return To Life, a post-apocalyptic/sci-fi/fantasy adventure I’ve essentially been working on since 1993.
It was three years ago when I was honorably discharged from the Navy that I truly began pursuing this dream by enrolling in the Academy for Creative Media film school at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. It was scary leaving that nice LES/paycheck, but definitely the best decision I could have made for myself!
Now I’m gearing up my YouTube channel, getting ready to screen my student film again (tomorrow and then in a few weeks), and have my first appearance at the local comic-con here in Honolulu! It’s nuts, it’s crazy, and I’m so excited!
