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!

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:

Make a pledge today not to use the word “retard(ed)” and substitute it with more positive language. Commit now to create a loving environment for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Pledge respect now at http://www.r-word.org

That’s it for now – Be excellent to each other . . . and ROCK ON!

48hr Madness

Yup, did it again…participated in the San Diego 48hr Film Project 2016. WHY??? Because #TeamBadMF asked me and you don’t say NO to them, haha! Feeling honored to be part of the team again after the fantastic success of their entry from last year! (you can refresh your memory via my blog entry about ‘Crowd Sorcery’ from 2015)

The genre we drew was ‘sports’ so I give you three guesses which one we’re featuring in ‘The NBL’…

We’re in Group B and the screening will be Tuesday, September 6th at 9pm. Oh yes, hilarity will ensue, guaranteed! You can still get tickets here.

I plan on updating this blog after the screening with pics and hopefully winning announcements!

See ya on the red carpet!
