I wish I could’ve accompanied our fearless director, Josh Mendoza, out to this year’s Phoenix Film Festival for the screening of God’s Country, on which I served as cinematographer. Sounds like the screening went great – would’ve been fun to see it on the big screen! Also, check out this nice write-up of Josh in a local newspaper.
Just found out that my USC student short, “The Ritual” has been selected to screen at the Dam Short Film Festival in Boulder City, Nevada this February!
We’ll be the first film shown on Thursday, February 7th, in their screening group, “Curious Situations” – which could describe pretty much every film I’ve ever made…
Looks like my lovely wife, Ms. Laura Marie Keller and I have a trip to Vegas in our future!
I just got the great news that my feature script “Outlaw Country” is a quarterfinalist in the Slamdance Screenplay Competition! They got several thousand entries, and narrowed it down to twenty-five scripts in each of four categories: Features, Horror Features, Shorts, and Teleplays. In about a week, I’ll find out if I made it into the semifinals round, so stay tuned…
Our horror short from the San Diego 48 Hour Film Festival has won the “Best Use of GoPro Camera” award! For anyone who hasn’t yet seen the film, I won’t spoil how we used it, but suffice to say that it is the closing shot of the movie. Check it out on my videos page.
I directed this project, which I co-wrote with some friends for the San Diego 48 Hour Film Project. It stars Mr. Justin Lieberknecht, with more great makeup effects by Andy Trimlett. We ended up winning the “Best Use of GoPro Camera” award at the festival. (I won’t spoil it – but we used it for the last shot of the movie.)
Check out the trailer for the 48 Hour Film Project I directed a couple of weeks ago!
We picked genres out of a hat, and our team drew horror. We had to incorporate three elements; a phone, a news reporter named Gary Greenberg, and the line, “Where are we going?”
So our team created a film about a demonic cell phone app – a Killer App, if you will…
I’ve been busy lately – so busy, as you might notice, that I haven’t updated this site for some time… But never fear; it’s update time!
I have finished two short films that I’m very proud of – The Mirror of Samuel Drax, and Tongue of the Red Snapper, and I’m starting the process of submitting both to film festivals. In addition, I’ve just completed principal photography on another short called, “The Ritual,” and it looks like it’s coming together well. Check back right here for updates!
