New Film Short: "Rules" Premiere!

I'm very excited to announce that "Rules," a short film from my wonderfully talented friend Brendan Steere will be premiering on June 11th at Indieworks in Manhattan, NYC! If you aren't busy (and if you are, you should really just cancel your plans because this will be undoubtedly more fun) please come out to support a great short that explores socially accepted norms in a culture deeply attuned to what is taboo (If that doesn't spark your interest, then I have no hopes for you!). 


The doors open at 6:30 pm, and the location is 163 Allen St, NY. And did I mention that it's free? So why not come out and enjoy a night of great films and drink specials while supporting your local artist friends and their most recent endeavors. I hope to see you there!

"Animosity" Lands Distribution Deal!

I am proud to announce that my brilliant friend Brendan Steere's film (which I was also the set photographer for) has set up distribution! You can see the official write-up here!

This project was so much fun to be a part of, and I'm so proud of all the attention and success it has garnered. Not only did it win Best Horror Feature at the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, but its starring actress and my wonderful friend Tracy Willet also won Best Actress! I couldn't have hoped for more with such talented and creative people, and I am so happy for their accomplishments. We also filmed a majority of the exterior scenes at my home (finally, living in the middle of the forest comes in handy!), so it will always hold a special place in my heart.

I loved working with every single member of the cast and crew; I hope I get to do it again soon!
