Please join me and 6 brilliant local filmmakers for Hallowed Ground, this Monday, October 21st, at he Hollywood Theater, for the premiere of my new film, IMAGE.
today begins the campaign for raising funds for my new project CPR, a short film that I will be directing. My friend Kimberly Warner had a great idea and asked me to help her bring it to life.

Very excited to try out this new crowdfunding concept. 30 days to raise 5K.
Check it out! It’s going to be a beautiful and moving, we hope!
Shooting a short film in October…my good friend, the insanely talented Kimberly Warner has written a very interesting treatment…no dialog…and has asked me to direct/produce. We are waiting to hear if we can use Kickstarter to raise some funds…we have a small budget to start with, hoping to augment…
Here is our tumblr…CPR...with some stills from a test shoot, and some footage I shot as we shot…I edited into a short little tease. It will be a beautiful thing!
Here’s some stills I shot during test shoot….
links/posts from around the web that will be of interest to filmmakers!
Soon to launch a crowd-funding appeal for my film projects. And I am wondering what the pros and cons of kickstarter vs. indiegogo are? honestly I can’t tell from the websites. This is of course, may mean I am not nearly so clever as I think…or maybe that there is fundamentally not much difference in these (and other) crowd-funding sites. You sign up…you ask people for money…you give them perks.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
I am sure everyone has already taken note of Dargis’ article in today’s NY Times…she covers the territory that twitter has been aflame with these last 6 months or so…the fact that filmmakers are taking control of their own destinies…entire new business models, marketing models, filmmaking models. One year ago there was despair in the film community. Everything is/was broken. There has been a complete turn-around. Enthusiasm and energy abound now, as filmmakers (and their fans) become much more proactive…about making, distributing, and enjoying…films. Movies? Transmedia? Whatever it is that artists will be/are creating.
Had the hardest time trying to get the soundcloud widget to work properly on Facebook. It worked at first…then a bunch of errors, then I was able to post a link to Facebook that takes one to the sound file itself…but still no in-page play at Facebook. Dang.
But, here’s the link…one more time!…to the theme song for 13 Years in A Broken Down Rocket Ship, the new web series I am writing. I wrote, performed, and recorded the song…with Jason Bays of the Spires on bass.

I’ve written and recorded the theme song for a new web series I am writing and producing called “13 Years in a Broken Down Rocket Ship”. Today I am doing the final mixdown, ably assisted by my good friend Scott Weddle, of Amelia fame. Special “guest star” on bass, Jason Bays of the awesome Spires. I will post it later today…sort of a Guided by Voices meets MBV. Maybe.
