May The Post Be With You

Well, this is awkward.  

Hello, website I constantly think about posting on and never get around to.  Apart from the occasional e-mail I don’t even know if people check this thing.  

Time has flown by since the last post, and now that we’re all in lockdown it only seems to have gotten worse.

But, enough of that, updates!  In December I traveled to Alaska to shoot a documentary about the University of Alaska Fairbanks study on WTC 7.  The teaser trailer was just released:

 

We’re close to wrapping up the film, coming in at around 45 minutes, and we’re also editing a five minute version for airing on PBS.

Also, last year I collaborated with a friend on a documentary about the “Angry Bagel Guy” Chris Morgan and his ill-fated celebrity boxing match with Lenny Dykstra.  That short piece is free to watch here, if you need a healthy dose of schadenfreude:

 

That’s about it for now.  I had some pretty big plans for this year that have mostly been scuttled for now, but I do have a few other things up my sleeve.

Talk to you next year!

The Unprofessional

Hello there, occasional website visitors.

The wacky documentary that I edited and co-produced, which premiered at Slamdance this year, is now on Amazon!  And if you have Prime, it’s free to watch!

If you’ve got 75 minutes to spare you can watch a Pennsylvania entrepreneur struggle with multiple businesses, an overbearing mother and an abysmal love life.

If you enjoy the film, I hope you’ll take a moment afterwards to leave a review.

When I was writing the script for the narrative version of Loose Change, Adult Swim was constantly being watched in the living room by my roommates. It wasn’t long before I also fell in love with Space Ghost, The Brak Show and Sealab 2021. Harvey Birdman is, to date, one of my favorite animated shows.

If you had told me in the early 2000s that almost two decades later I would appear on Adult Swim, I wouldn’t have believed you.

And yet, that’s what’s happened. I’m on Kraft Punk’s (sorry, KRFT Punk) new special.

Back At The Desk

I’ve been back from Slamdance for a week now, and what a whirlwind! The festival is truly By Indies For Indies, and out of 14,000 submissions it is an honor to be included in their lineup. They truly strive to find original, unique works and there’s no sales agent or producer that can convince them to program otherwise.

The star of the doc, Stevie Blatz, came out from Pennsylvania to do some street magic and get butts in the seats. Our two screenings had a lot of laughs and we were paired with a wonderful short film, Gloria’s Call.

While I was there I was notified that my short film, Trust Me, was accepted into the Oregon Short Film Festival and 15 Minutes of Fame! Not only that, it’s nominated for Best Picture at Oregon! This is truly an honor and I’m hoping to attend Oregon in person, just in case.
