It’s Been a While

Hello there little website!  It’s been a busy year, and I’ve carried on that bad habit of not updating this website nobody checks.

I’ve been working on a documentary for hire for last six months but I’m not sure what the release plan is for that project.  

Meanwhile Korey’s documentary Mile Marker that I helped produce along with pulling DP duties in Denver is out on digital outlets.

Black and Blue is gearing up for its release later this fall.  I’m told a simultaneous VOD and limited theatrical is in the works, with physical copies months later.  Pretty exciting stuff, we’ll have a soundtrack and a music video as well.

Today I did an interview for a non-fiction book about self-made individuals in the Internet age, not sure when it’ll come out but it’s always nice when people reach out to chat about anything other than 9/11.  

I also filmed an appearance for a relatively well-known network a few months back, but I’m not sure if the footage will ever be seen.  It was … weird.

I feel like there’s something I’m forgetting, but those are the big things that come to mind.

And, as noted on my front page, I’m currently searching for funds for a feature film.  If you know a guy.

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.
