Things we tease!

Hiiiii guys!!! Hope you’re still with us in these crazy times! Ready for some fun news for a change?

First official film festival selections have been made, yayyy! I will be making festival announcements – yes, ‘s’ as in plural (!!!), for ‘Things We Dig‘ here soon, once I get the screening info and pertinent details. It’s finally time! I’m starting Halloween season off early, I don’t care if it’s still over 100 degrees outside. Damn this summer to hell!

While we wait for the film festival details, I thought I’d share some of the fun ‘Clips from the Crypt’ teasers we have made for you, edited by Peter Stoll of San Diego Digital Imagery.

Way back in March, before the plaque, we had a little private screening for the cast and crew, and we made them talk about ‘Things We Dig’ a little. Yes, there was a little booze. ;)

Without further ado, check out the first round:

Marc Biagi as Miles
Cat Forrest as Helgie
Patrick Russel Burton as Scott
Jenn Larson as Lucretia
Yours truly as Kuni von Stechen and director

New headshots, new reels and a nomination!

Hello everybody! I hope you’re all doing well and that this year has been treating you better than the last one so far!

So, what’s new?

In January, I had new headshots taken and updated my demo reels again. I noticed that a bunch of new imdb credits have popped up too – please check them out and give my IMDb page a ‘like’ when you have a second!

In February, the dark comedy I wrote, co-directed and acted in, “The Appointment’ was screened during San Diego Filmweek 2017 at MOPA in beautiful Balboa Park. It was a lot of fun to see it on the big screen one more time, hear the laughter in all the right places and take part in the filmmaker Q/A afterwards.

Don’t worry if you missed it – You can still watch my short film for free right here: The Appointment on Vimeo

Then I found out I was nominated for Best Writing in the Narrative Short Film category for the 2017 San Diego Film Awards in April!

bestwritingI feel honored to be included in such a talented group!

Then at the start of March, I had the opportunity to take part in a ‘Spread the Word to End The Word’ PSA. Watch the short video clip below:

German Currents Film Festival 6.0

Last weekend was my 6th year volunteering for the German Currents Film Festival in San Diego. As usual, lots of fun and people, great films, good food and drink were had!

I took the crowd/mingling and celebrity Q/A photos which you can see on the festival FB page here.
