It’s that time of year again.  After existing on various channels throughout the years in various qualities and versions, we have now uploaded Loose Change 2nd Edition in full HD on Youtube on the official channel.  I’m excited to see the film properly preserved, and thanks to Youtube’s easy closed-captioning system we should be able to provide translations for every country, just like the old days.  

With that being said, Black and Blue will be premiering at the Catalina Film Festival!  That news has been in the sidebar for a bit but I felt it deserved its own post along with a general update.  This is very exciting, my first major festival debut.

Since everyone’s getting back from Burning Man, and I realize my short was not on the website, here’s my video from 2013.  Truly an unforgettable experience and I’m glad my 28-135 lens died halfway through the burn because the sight of embers soaring above my head is permanently seared into my memory.

As I sign with a distributor today for Black and Blue, I figured I’d share my 2011 film Buzzkill, which is available online in full for the first time.  When it was originally released, YouTube had a 15 minute cap and 720p resolution.  You can now enjoy the film in its entirety in glorious full HD.

While living in Ocean Beach, San Diego, Wes Davis and I were hanging at a mutual friend’s house he joked how he wanted to make a film about quitting coffee for 21 days and call it Buzzkill.  I was fresh off Loose Change, I needed something to work on and I had a Panasonic HVX-200 so we decided to do the “break-up” on the upcoming Valentine’s Day.

There’s no mental breakdowns, he doesn’t smash anything, but he becomes considerably calmer and doles out a pile of life lessons along the way as he surfs, visits tea shops and spas, and interviews people about their caffeine habits.  It’s a nice little hour that you can put on in the foreground or background and maybe see if you can go 21 days without something.

Welcome Back!

Hey there, hi there, hello there.  Welcome back to the revamped personal site of mine.  I’ve tried to automate this site so that anything I do on any social site is posted here.  I post so much on Facebook and Twitter and barely think to post on here, but then again, things have been quiet on the public front as I work my butt off.

On that note, Black and Blue is done.  Working on a festival debut of some kind, possibly release in September.  Korey and I are working on some Loose Change related stuff this year, and between the two of us we have about 6 films in production this year.

That’s about it!  Stay tuned!  Exciting things happening.
