This Isn't Funny

Some stills from the set of the "This Isn't Funny". A movie about how meeting the right person at the wrong time can be the best thing that ever happened to you. It's directed by Paul Ashton and stars him and his writing partner, Katie Page....

WHY WOULD YOU HELP ME!??!

IT'S ALWAYS SCARY ASKING FOR HELP.  Here I am.  Raw and vulnerable.  Telling the truth about something I believe in.  Take a few minutes if you can and see what I've got cookin'.  Fresh off a plane from Minnesota helping a friend of mine produce...

Making a Movie

Not everyone gets to do it. So I'm gonna drop a big ole "I'm grateful!!" bomb on the opportunity that stands here in front of my face, each and every day, for two and a half more weeks. Working with some incredible actors and a hell...

"Something About Her" – I think I've got my finger on it.

There's got to be a cooler way to segway into this title of another production from director, Carl Colpaert.  I stopped by the soon-to-be set of the latest indie gem Carl has in the mix. Carl's been around for a while, making indie greats, "Hurly Burly" and "Swimming with...

The Home Stretch, take a hit…

Lena Dunham is the shit.

I have no idea how it took me this long to see this film but you should check it out. Especially if you are an independent filmmaker. And if you like Girls, the show on HBO. Super talented writer/director/actor Lena Dunham makes me go "How can...

I'm a fan of Martin Mcdonagh

I'm a fan. I realized I am a bigger fan than I thought when I read an interview this morning about Martin Mcdonagh. I saw Seven Psychopaths the other day and tweeted about how much I loved it. I didn't know he wrote and...

Gangsters and S&M

Originally we were shooting some film about a pot store down on its luck but somehow it's all gotten a bit out of hand. Here are some photos of some recent creepy shit. Seriously though, it has been ten days, and I sit here watching our...
