“Unconditional” is now up on Popcorn Fiction!

Published by under Good News/Bad News

My short story, “Unconditional,” is now up on Derek Haas’ very cool short story website, Previous contributors include Brian Helgeland and Scott Frank, but Derek appears now to be scraping the bottom of the barrel. His loss is my gain! It’s my first attempt at short fiction in many years. I originally wrote the [...]

The sci-fi short film that I wrote and directed (and went gray producing the effects shots for) is premiering at the LA Shortsfest on Monday, July 27th. It’s part of Program #24 at 10PM. If you can sneak out on a school night, I’d love to see you there. Tickets are available online.

She’s A Trip, But She’s No Vacation

The producers of Greta have put up a really slick flash site for the movie. Check it out. It incorporates a lot of the music and production design that’s used in the film. I’m particularly enamored of the doodle animations. There are also sites for the film on MySpace and Facebook. I’ll post more news [...]

Where’s The Corkscrew?

I’ve been mum for a while because this bit of good news had not been officially announced yet and I didn’t want to jinx anything, but… My first movie just went into production. It’s called Greta, and it’s being produced by Whitewater Films and directed by Nancy Bardawil. It stars Hilary Duff, Ellen Burstyn, Michael [...]

One Small Step

Last weekend was the second and last of the two-weekend shoot for my short film, Walking Wounded, and I’m still recovering. It’s a 16-page script, which means we averaged four pages per day. That’s like shooting a 110-page feature in about 27 days, which is pretty respectable. The Panasonic HVX200 treated us pretty well. It’s [...]

You Run And You Run To Catch Up With The Sun…

Okay, so there haven’t been much in the way of updates. Sorry, I’ve been pretty busy working on two different feature projects and trying to fit the short prep into whatever spare moments I can find. And, all of the sudden — we’re shooting in 3 days! Wow. How did that happen? The good news [...]

Things Are Shaping Up

The short is coming together. Shooting dates are set. Locations are secured. The script is polished. A slick FX shop has come on board to help out with the effects. And just this week, I secured the talents of a really gifted illustrator for the design of the aliens and their various machines. His name [...]

It Begins…

I’m about to pull the trigger on a fairly ambitious project — a new short film, produced under the auspices of the Socal Film Group. It’s been a while since my last short, DUST DEVIL, and this one will be considerably more demanding and, if things go well, a much more impressive piece of filmmaking. [...]
