There was a time when I didn't think it would ever happen. Today, I finally got back into directing a short film.
I know I talked about this yesterday, but I was fully prepared to write a fail blog today with the excuse that nothing went right and we didn't actually shoot anything.
Not to say that everything did go well, but we still got something shot.
The real issue today was the lack of an actress. I know this was totally my fault due to my poor planning… Continue

As most of you know, I've directed a few short films in my time. For example, "Taboo
" (which has just recently inspired a short film currently being shot in L.A. More on that some other time) was what I consider my best directorial work thus far.
But that, believe it or not, was way back in 2007. Certainly not the last film I have worked on, but I have been working as camera, writer, editor, etc. on all these other projects. And it's not for… Continue

At last, an entry into The Tenth Daughter of Memory! No punishment for me!!
From Hell to Breakfast A tale from the 5 Regular Guys Universe
I swear all I wanted was a couple of eggs... maybe a piece of bacon... or two. I know I shouldn't eat it, and she'd kill me if she ever found out, but when death is around the… Continue

Finally, another entry for The Tenth Daughter of Memory. This time I went with a Jersey Jones story from the perspective of sidekick extraordinaire Dilworth K. Smith.
Another Fine Mess

"The map doesn't say anything, it isn't real!"
"I get that,… Continue

Yeah, no blog yesterday.
Sorry about that.
I was fully planning on writing up a Scott Pilgrim review, but things got away from me. My friend Jason is here visiting, so I'm gonna keep this short.
I promise a full blog with Scott Pilgrim review later today. It will happen.

The following is a very rough short story that I am submitting to the Tenth Daughter of Memory. Enjoy.
"There's no way. It can't be that simple!"
Rob just smirked at his roommate's consternation. He shrugged.
"Dude, I can't help it if the ladies find me irresistible."
Joe started laughing from his usual spot on the couch, the spot with… Continue

The first weekend in May was quite a busy affair for me. It's fortunate that BEDA ended the day before, because I would not have been able to blog from the 1st through the 3rd. I was Downtown at the Cape Fear Independent Film Festival
There are two major film festivals in Wilmington (I'm not including… Continue

Went to the screening tonight. As always, there were some really good submissions, and some just alright ones.
Apparently, only twelve teams entered this year, and one never turned in a short. This means that, with a Top Ten screening, only 1 short didn't make the cut. That kinda sucks. I would be very unhappy if I was a part of that team.
Something seemed to be missing from this year's festival. Several people mentioned it, but none of us could put our fingers on what it… Continue

Found out today that the short film I submitted, "Five Minutes Til...", has been accepted into the Cape Fear Independent Film Festival
This short was also available on YouTube for a while, but it was disabled (or the audio was, can't remember which) due to a dispute between YT and Warner Music Group (for more on my feelings about that, check out my earlier post… Continue

So, anyone who knows me knows that I am a filmmaker. After running my friends to the airport for their weekend away, I've spent the rest of the day with film festival preparations.
My associate and I are entering five films into the Cape Fear Independent Film Festival
this year. Today was the absolute final deadline and, as with so many other things, I waited to the last possible minute. I burned my DVD last night and was… Continue

As the title suggests, I have seriously neglected my blogging lately. In fact, other than my weekly post to the Five Awesome Bloggers
(I'm Wednesday), I haven't written much of anything.
I'M SUCH A SLACKER!
So, here is my first step to writing on a regular basis. As I write this, I make a pledge to myself, and to all of you, that I will write every day. Whether it be here, my… Continue
