September 2015

August was a good month ...

and September has similarly shaped up to be a good month. A quick run down of what happened in August  (links are to blog/Facebook posts with more details):

September also had a few exciting things so far:
  • Time Signature screened as part of Filmomaniac on September 14th! It was well received and I had a couple of fun conversations with people about time travel after the show. If you haven't caught the film yet you can watch it at
  • Maybe Sunshine, the web series I'm producing starring Lisa Hammer and her band Radiana, screened one of our episodes as part of IndieWorks' Web Series month on September 9th. We won the Audience Choice Award. That was the first time we'd shown an episode publicly. We're excited to complete season one and share the whole thing very soon.
Lots more coming in the next few months on everything.

Three Questions

with Carolyn Maher 

Three questions is a new thing I decided to do because I like the people I work with and want to share more about them and what they do and what they care about. I'm keeping it simple, though, with just three questions. First up is Carolyn Maher. She was my Assistant Director for Time Signature, she is the Producer and AD for Meme, and she's Producing and performing AD duties again on Maybe Sunshine

What do you do?

I produce things!  I take steps to bring different parts of the filmmaking process together to actually shoot things like scheduling, organizing, planning and communicating what needs to get done.  I also keep one eye on the "bigger picture" to make sure a project is ready for the next phase of its life and what we can do now to help that next phase.

Why do you do it?

Film is a powerful storytelling medium and my objective as a filmmaker and producer is to tell stories that spread empathy, promote understanding and creative expression.  Stories are one of our most important ways of creating a common ground and platform for discussion, debate and understanding.  There's also a joy I get from bringing someone else's vision to life.

What do you want to share?

SO MUCH!  My first feature as producer Trichster just got accepted to Cucalorus (which is the best festival on the planet) and is soon entering the wonderful world of distribution!  Meme just wrapped principal photography and I'm always so impressed when I think about all the amazing people who were so generous with their time and talent to make it happen.  The Cape House (feature #3) is starting to come together and it's a whole different kind of challenge than anything I've done before.  And if you want to spend 10 seconds watching some ridiculous stop motion animation, check out my Vimeo page.
