What’s the latest on “AK”?

Last year, you heard me talk about a short film AK.  If you’re curious what’s happened with it since, this blog post is for you. Wanna skip to the end? The long and short of it is this: we’re working on a means to screen the finished piece locally sometime soon. I’ll share more details about that when things are more finalized. What’s AK?

Studying fight scenes

If you’re a regular here, you know that I’ve been studying fight scenes this year. The research is the result of working on a new short film, which I wrote and plan to direct in early 2016.

It was an incredible experience. If you missed the show live, you can listen to the conversation here. The folks at The State of Things do an incredible job. I want to be friends with all of them. We were there

Two of my films, Trophy and Landfill Dogs: Behind The Scenes, will screen publicly for the first time at the festival. Last year I attended Alice Fest for the first time. I’m thrilled to return this year with two of my own
