It’s Halloween! Also known as the day before my birthday.
Back in August I directed a short film. It’s from the same writer as the feature I’m trying to get off the ground, and it was a bit of a reverse-engineered “what do I have at my disposal?” approach. I had a burger joint, I had an actor I’d worked with several times in the past and a father-daughter combination from an acting class I occasionally sit in on. And so, I shot this:
If you watch it, I hope you like it. For no budget and a couple hours in the desert I’m very happy with how things turned out.
And if you’ve glanced at the sidebar, you’ll notice that Black and Blue has been released on Amazon in the UK and will be available in the US tomorrow! Tomorrow I will post the trailer here along with links. The film took three long years of filming and editing combined, and so I hope anyone who watches it enjoys it.
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.
