Hooray for Hollywood

Great news, friends!

My short film Leave will premiere at the LA FEMME FILM FESTIVAL in October!

The entire cast and crew, which includes yours truly, is very proud and honored to be able to show our film for the first time to the world at such a prestigious event.

We are also proud and honored to finally be able to share with you a short teaser of the film right now.

This teaser is shared from the Vimeo account of Leave’s talented producer Jeff Hammer; so, after you finish viewing and sharing it with all your friends and family, please make sure you check out the rest of Jeff’s amazing work.
 


 
BTW, if you’d like to read the short story from which I adapted the screenplay, you can receive a free copy of it and other stories when signing up for my newsletter.

Hope to see you all at the festival!

Cheers!

Leave Is In The Can!

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)!

Enjoy!

Papers, Please

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…

Depressing Pasty White Boys Playlist for Melancholic Moods and Writing Inspiration

So, the past couple weeks I’ve been in a last-minute frenzy (the best way I find to write) to finish the screenplay for a feature film version of Leave.

Yeah, we’re now – no jokin’ – just days away of getting Leave, the short film version*, in the can and we will soon be submitting the production (and let me tell ya, it’s been one hell of a production (to say the least)) to all the various and sundry film festivals throughout the lands near and far.

And, as we’re all hoping (I know, I know all you hardcore military grunts – HOPE IS NOT A COURSE OF ACTION!), and some of us are even borderline expecting, that there will be some interest after seeing the short film from the moneyed movie moguls who will be out there cruising all the various and sundry festivals looking for their next feature film project…
