DEEDS, NOT WORDS

November 15, 2021

My latest Attack of the 50-Foot Movie event—where a room full of drunk movie fans gathered to collectively groan at MegaForce in the back of Minnie’s Bar —was a smash success!

Extra special thanks to Tiny D, whose nudie tribute to “Mad Max” brought the house down.

November 10, 2021

Here’s your first peek at my upcoming documentary, “Hank’s Saloon”.

In 2018, I was invited to film this legendary Brooklyn dive bar in the final months before it closed down forever. The resulting film—currently in post-production—is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2022.

“The Unconscious and the Reflective Nemesis”

September 18, 2021

In May of 2021, I worked as Editor and Sound Designer on the surreal short film “The Unconscious and the Reflective Nemesis”, directed by Adrian Stanley Thomas. The film won the Best Sound Design award at the 2021 SVA Short Film Fest, and is currently making the rounds on the festival circuit.

Over the Edge

February 26, 2021

Back in 2017, my old friend—and the ultimate movie fan—Mike White invited me to be a guest on his award-winning film podcast, The Projection Booth, to discuss one of my favorite movies of all time: 1979’s Over the Edge.

I have just learned that UK-based Arrow Films is putting out a special-edition Blu-Ray of Over the Edge in May. And among their many “Extras” will be excerpts from the audio commentary that Mike, Mondo Heather, and I did during our episode about the movie back in 2017.

I’m not even sure my voice made the final cut, but I don’t care. Just having my name attached to this is a personal honor, and almost beyond my comprehension.

You can still hear our original, epic-length “Over the Edge” podcast episode here.

Special Edition Over the Edge Blu-Rays are available for pre-order here.

October 14, 2020

Starring Allison Pittel and Michael Phoenix.

“Distant” to Screen at Coney Island Film Fest

August 9, 2020

“DISTANT”, the 2-minute horror short that I created with my wife Ashlie while in quarantine, has been accepted to the 20th annual Coney Island Film Festival.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s festival will be held online. This is a sad blow for those of us who, in past years, loved gathering at the bumper cars to hear the awards being announced. But I’m grateful that it’s still happening, in some form. And I can assure you that—after this summer—the festival and its parent organization, Coney Island USA, need your financial support now more than ever.

 

The good news: The new format—courtesy of Xerb TV—allows you to watch any program in the festival, at any time, on any day between September 22 and October 2.

“Distant” will screen online as part of Program 8 – Horror Shorts. Tickets for Program 8 are $7, and available here.

Tickets to the entire festival are only $20, if you order them before Sept. 8th. Get festival tickets here.

 

This will be my second time participating in the festival. The first was with my documentary Fancy Feast: The Fat Burlesque Performer (a.k.a. “Character”), back in 2017.

“Distant” stars Ashlie Atkinson, Chris Kelly, and Jennifer Laine Williams. It was originally created for Roger Corman’s Quarantine Film Festival back in April.

Suzi Q

August 3, 2020

I was recently invited to be a guest on a very special crossover episode of the See/Hear Music Film Podcast, where I joined host Maurice Bursztynski—as well as the one and only Mike White of The Projection Booth—to discuss Suzi Q, the documentary about legendary rock’n’roll pioneer Suzi Quatro.

This episode also features exclusive interviews with the film’s director Liam Firmager, producer Tait Brady, and of course Ms. Quatro herself.

“Breaking the Silence” Trailer

July 25, 2020


I just cut this trailer for a very interesting short film: “Breaking the Silence”, directed by Seayoon Jeong.

It tackles the difficult subject of “comfort women” during WWII—and the movement in the 1980s to acknowledge them.
