Hank’s Saloon: The Movie

In 2018, I was invited to film the legendary Brooklyn dive bar Hank’s Saloon, in the final months before it closed down forever.

Due to other editing work, I had to put this project on the back burner for a while.

But right now, I am hosting a crowdfunding campaign (my first ever!) so that I can finish post-production and finally release the completed feature documentary.

You have until March 8, 2024 to donate!

To learn more about the project and see what kind of prizes I’m giving away, please visit my Indiegogo Page.

Deep Astronomy and the Romantic Sciences

Many years ago, I s̶t̶a̶l̶k̶e̶d̶  sought out my favorite modern underground filmmaker, Cory McAbee, and somehow convinced him to not only call me an Assistant Director, but also give me a bit part in his movie.

Now, at long last, I am proud to announce that the art/performance/science-ish film I worked on, “Deep Astronomy and the Romantic Sciences”, is now available FREE to the viewing public.

Special thanks to everyone in the cast and crew who helped make this crazy scheme a reality.

The 24 Hour Plays Hit Little Rock!

If you know anything about my wife, Ashlie Atkinson, you know that she doesn’t sit still for anything. Even when her whole industry goes on strike.

So when she discovered that her home town of Little Rock, Arkansas had never hosted a production of The 24 Hour Plays, she jumped into action.

Now, with the help of her co-producers (and fellow Arkansans) Wyatt Hamilton and DeLance Minefee, the 24 Hour Plays Little Rock will make its world debut for one night only, on July 31st, in the building where lil’ Ashlie first got her start: the Arkansas Repertory Theatre.

Founded in 1995 by Mark Armstrong, the 24 Hour Plays is an event in which writers, performers, and a myriad of support staff gather to write, rehearse, and perform multiple short plays—literally within 24 hours. Ashlie has appeared as an actor in several of their past productions, all staged in New York City.

For the Little Rock production, six writers, six directors and 24 actors are coming together to create six original plays, all to be conceived and executed within a 24-hour period.

The 24 Hour Plays will hit the stage July 31st, 7pm, at Little Rock’s Arkansas Repertory Theatre. All net proceeds from the event will be donated to the American Red Cross for regional tornado relief.
