It’s been over a three-year process but
Leave is finally completed and I can’t tell you how happy and proud I am of it. I especially can’t wait until you can see it.
But first it has to go to the film festivals and we have already begun the submittal process. I will send out updates of the (many (hopefully)) festivals that pick it up.
We will have a trailer for it soon and once it’s ready I will release it, as well as a very cool documentary of the film’s making, here for you to check out.
In the interim, I invite you to check out some of the work Leave’s amazing producer
Jeff Hammer has recently been involved with.
Jeff wrote, produced, and directed the feature film
Live Or Die In La Honda, which is being distributed by Freestyle Digital Media and can be streamed on Amazon and other services.
He also produced a web series called
Personal Space which has also been picked up by Amazon and can be streamed on Amazon Prime.
Like I said, Jeff’s an amazing dude so check out his work if you have the chance.
Things are getting crazy (and by crazy I mean frikkin’ awesome)!
Happily happened upon this diminutive but hugely powerful short film by Marc-André Girard while surfing Vimeo this morning and can’t help but share it with you.
This is just one example of the many intriguing and intellectually stimulating videos you can enjoy from
the Nerdwriter’s youtube channel.
This amazing short film is trending on youtube. I don’t always check to see what’s trending on youtube because usually there are only inane things I have no interest in; however, I may have to start checking more often if there is the chance that there is more quality art to discover such as this quality production.
Interestingly/oddly, the film is based upon a
video game created by Lucas Pope.
Perhaps there is hope for humanity after all…
It’s hard to believe it’s been over a year since we wrapped up production out in West Hollywood on my short film LEAVE, which was adapted from my short story of the same name.
That, my friends, was
a good time, indeed.
Time sure does go fast…
And, frustratingly enough, it, concurrently, goes so frakkin’ (any BSG/Caprica fans out there?) slow when one’s breath is bated in anticipation, such as mine is for the film’s completion.
Movie making is not as easy as it looks from the theater seats, that’s for sure.

Let’s do this.
ALT BEST PICTURE: I’ve only seen one “Best Picture” nomination — “Arrival” and I thought it was mostly Zzz… — so out of all the 2016 movies I have seen, not just those nominated, which still are only a handful… or, would it be an “eyeful?”…my Alt-Oscar for Best Picture of 2016 — and which is one of the best flicks I’ve seen in a loooong time — goes to:
USS BRINDLEY, underway! Shift Colors!
Ain’t that America…
Oklahoma: Big Sky, Big Bugs
O bento! Brindley fuel. Courtesy of my lovely and loving wife.
America is rather large

America the beautiful… and the grand
