Sizzzzzle!

I’m so stoked to announce that my horror short screenplay “Parcopresis” has been selected for two more genre film festivals!

The script has been selected by Hollywood Horrorfest and it is in competition. Winners will be announced at their event in Los Angeles August 7th! So.. it’s soon, but the wait is agonizing, haha! Crossing fingers and tentacles!

Then, on Saturday I found out that “Parcopresis” is an Official Semifinalist in the GenreBlast 2021 Script Competition! Finalists will be announced next week and winners will be announced Sunday, September 5th at their awards ceremony in Winchester, Virginia! Let’s all visualize making it to the next round!

Edit/update August 11th: “Parcopresis” has moved to the Finalist stage at GenreBlast 2021! Keep crossing all digits!

All in all, that makes it six selections out of seven festival/competition submissions so far! I’m pinching myself! I never expected it to get so much love, but I’ll take it – and really appreciate it!

Cheers… and stay tuned for much more! Hint: new acting gigs and exciting announcements about my short films ‘The Test‘ and ‘Things We Dig“! 🖤

Gloom be gone!

Hey everybody! How are you feeling, now that Covid19 restrictions are easing up?

Popping in for a few quickie updates before heading out to some beautiful weather! No June gloom in San Diego today!


Things We Dig” had its successful screening at the Austin After Dark Film Festival in Texas! I wasn’t able to travel there in person as I had intended, but festival director Mikel Fair told me: “People honked horns, whistled and clapped for your film!” Yaaayyy! He was even so kind and emailed me this snapshot from the drive-in screening that night!

I’m in the middle of post-production for my next shorty short film, a crime/thriller called “The Test“; making good progress working with editor Peter Stoll (our third collaboration). Also, we have a rad poster designed by all around creative genius Elsa Mickelsen! I will reveal it soon in a new, separate post! Stay tuned!


Last but not least – I am super happy to share the news that my horror script “Parcopresis” won Best Horror Short Screenplay at the Die Laughing Film Festival in Hollywood!!! This is my first time winning anything “first place” as a writer! I’m so friggin’ excited and over the moon about this! Feeling a bit validated, you know what I mean? Cheers!

That’s it for today – thanks for reading and indulging me – have a great weekend!!!

Group power!

As we’re getting closer to the Die Laughing Film Festival May 28-29th, I was invited to a roundtable zoom session with other screenwriters, to briefly talk about our scripts. If you want to know a bit more about what inspired me to write my horror short “Parcopresis“, check out the video here:


Also, great news! I recently talked about “Things we Dig” getting accepted into the End of Days Film Festival and that it was nominated for some awards, but I didn’t know which ones. Turns out it was for ‘Best Comedy‘ and ‘Best Ensemble Cast‘. Guess what!

We won Best Ensemble Cast, yaayyy!

Congrats to my #teamdiggers! I’m so proud of you!

Ok, back to work! *cracks whip*
