“Nyctophobia” Wins Outstanding Editing

June 11, 2024

I’m proud to announce that “Nyctophobia”, the surreal feature-length art film that I worked as Editor on from 2021 through 2023, just won the award for Outstanding Editing from the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.

Special thanks goes out to the director, Seayoon Jeong, as well as everyone else who helped make this truly unique project happen.

For more info on the film and upcoming screenings, visit the official website.

The Queen

In 1967, director Frank Simon filmed the 1967 Miss All-America Camp Beauty Contest—at the time, one of the premiere “female impersonator” competitions in the world. The resulting documentary—which captured much of the behind-the-scenes preparation and drama, as well as the show itself—gave most of the world its first glimpse at the then-underground world of Drag, and also captured what would become a pivotal moment in the development New York City’s Ballroom scene.

Uncle Leon and the Alibis

May 13, 2024

The Reunion Show!

If you’ve known me long enough, you might remember that I used to front a quirky little band called Uncle Leon and the Alibis.

It’s been 9 years since we played together as a full band. But on Friday, May 17, we’ll be blowing the dust off our instruments and getting together for special one-time reunion show at Parkside Lounge in Manhattan.

We’ll be joined by Raised by Tigers, They Them, and Stevie Johanson. The fun starts at 6:30pm (we play around 9). Admission is $10.

See you there!

Join us on Tuesday, May 28th in the back room at Minnie’s Bar in Brooklyn for a celebration of film so ridiculous that its title has become synonymous with “subpar sequel”. I’m talking, of course, about 1984’s “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo”.

Plus, we’ll be opening the party with a LIVE burlesque performance by Rain Supreme!

We Did It!

March 9, 2024

The crowdfunding campaign for my Hank’s Saloon movie has been an astounding success! Thanks to the many, many generous people who participated in this, the feature documentary is now slated to be completed sometime in 2024!

In the meantime, you can find out more about the movie—and get a few sneak peeks at the final product—by following the Hank’s Saloon Movie project on Facebook and Instagram.

To everyone who gave money, donated prizes, lent emotional support, or just helped me spread the word about this fundraiser: THANK YOU! None of this could have happened without your help.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a movie to go edit…

Hank’s Saloon: The Movie

February 8, 2024

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.

TO ALL MY FRIENDS!

January 8, 2024

Join us Tuesday, January 30th in the back room at Minnie’s Bar, for a collective chant of “Fuck Dry January!” as we enjoy the undersung, whiskey-soaked gem that is 1987’s “Barfly”.

Deep Astronomy and the Romantic Sciences

December 5, 2023

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.
