Pretty cool news – my first feature film, THANE OF EAST COUNTY screened at this year’s Poppy Jasper Film Festival, and we went home with the award for Best Drama! Thanks, Poppy Jasper for recognizing the hard work and artistry of everybody involved in this film.
It’s been an eventful year. After making our Kickstarter goal in July, we began principal photography on the film just a little over a week later, and it’s been non-stop action since then. Our wonderful cast and crew all brought their A-game and, during the 18 days we were in production, elevated our little movie even beyond what we had hoped for. It’s looking so freakin’ great, and I can’t wait to share it with you all.
After wrapping principal photography, I took a day off to sleep. Then I started editing.
It’s a strange experience; production takes a village, but post-production takes a hermit. I had thirty or more great collaborators as we were shooting, but since then, it’s pretty much been me and the computer. But I’m happy to announce that we’re within sight of a finished movie!
I’ve been sharing it with a few trusted friends and advisors, getting feedback, tweaking the final cut. I’m really excited about how it has turned out. Now we’ve just got a few more things left (sound mix, final image grade) before we’ll be ready to show it to you!
Thanks again for all your support. We’ll be in touch soon with more updates!

I’m excited to announce that this summer, I’ll be directing a feature film I’ve written, called Thane of East County. It’s a dark, bloody little thriller – a story of murder and betrayal set behind the scenes of a small production of Macbeth.
