Sometimes when you are making a movie, the process takes so long that I often feel like people outside of the project must question whether or not anything is really happening with it. That’s why it is so exciting when I get to a point where I can release something new. Here is the trailer … More Read Me trailer
Last week we wrapped production on Read Me, which is my first narrative feature film as writer and director. Average Community, a documentary, was my first feature film and was its own huge undertaking, but a completely different animal. I prefer making narrative films, mostly because I like working with actors so much. I always said that … More That’s a wrap – and I’m amazed
So as it turns out, crowdfunding is just not as easy as many might think. I learned that the hard way back in September of last year when I attempted to raise money through Kickstarter for my film Read Me. I was a bit too optimistic, and failed on some key componates to run a … More I needed a kickstart to my Kickstarter
Now that I see that someone is actually talking about remaking 1985’s Weird Science, I figure there are officially no more rules about what we can and cannot remake or add an unneeded sequel to. Just think, somewhere out in the world of cinema there is a Basic Instinct 2, five Resident Evil films and … More I’m gonna pitch some sequel ideas. Why not?
Yesterday was the last day of shooting on Banks Helfrich’s newest film “fat, dumb and happy” for which I was the assistant director. All I can think at this point is, wow what the hell just happened. We shot so damn fast (around 25 pages a day), that it would make any normal filmmakers’ head … More Shooting fat, dumb and happy
I’m going on record and saying that I really enjoyed The Dark Knight Rises. That’s not to say that the film didn’t have a few issues, every film does. But all said, it is a very good movie – proving that big budget Hollywood movies can be good. When I ask most people their thoughts … More My thoughts on The Dark Knight Rises
So on Sunday I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon at the Enzian, an independent movie theater here in Orlando. We screened 7 lives of Chance for the first time in front of an audience. I worked as Assistant Director to the ridiculously creative Writer/Director Banks Helfrich. And I also edited the film. I … More 7 lives of Chance
OK, I have now seen The Avengers. And I have to say…….it is the exact movie I figured it would be. With one small exception, there were a couple more Tony Stark one liners then I thought there would be. Now, was it entertaining? Well, yes it was. It’s always fun to see a butch … More The Avengers – part II
So I’m sitting here trying to figure out what is a good movie. The Avengers came out this past weekend, and it seems like I may be the only person in the world that isn’t running out to the theatre to stand in line for a ticket. Just to then sit in an overly crowed … More But is it good?
I’m not really sure how they pulled this off. I’m talking about the good people behind the NFL and the now seemingly national holiday, Super Bowl Sunday. Somehow they’ve convinced everyone in the country, if not the world that you need to watch the Super Bowl, whether you like football or not. Coming from someone … More Oscar vs Football
