September... Not a Bad Month at All!

OK, so I just saw, "The September Issue" the other day... the documentary film about Anna Wintour and the September edition of "Vogue" magazine their biggest every year and I loved it! I love most films about creative people and how they do what they do and this one is no exception.

Anna Wintour, who runs everything is a hoot and a half to watch. I love her attitude, work style and just overall driven ability to see and get her vision of fashion onto the pages of Vogue... she IS "Vogue." Some think she's a hard ass and yes she is, but there is something about that, that I just get off on.

Now she's not the only one putting things down and taking names... Grace Coddington is her right hand person and creative director at "Vogue" and together they're like "Batman and Robin," kicking butt and taking names.

You look for inspiration every where to keep you going in this business. I have about 4 or 5 films when I'm in that funk I just turn to and have to shut out the world, watch and get hyped and motivated again.

When I see films like this one, it gets my pumped! Sure it's not the same business... it's not the same level... but I think the core inside of a driven person is really the same no matter what the level is.

One day when I hit it big... someone will do a 60 Minutes story or film and they'll talk about what kept me going all of these years and the drive and passion it takes and I'll bet you'll be able to see a lot of Anna Wintour in me!

Awww Buddy... Back At It!

Yes... coffee at my mobile office, my laptop, Pandora Radio on and work to get done... even though it's butt ass cold and gloomy outside, things are getting right with the world again! Now if I can only get some sun and heat and we'll be alright!

Have been doing a lot of editing on the new "3 Days..." dvd which WILL come out some time this year... hopefully sooner rather than later in the year. Still waiting on at least two more interviews from folks who have promised me that they will happen soon, so I'll keep my fingers crossed and hold off really finishing it until I get something locked in from them. In the meantime there are a lot of other things I can do on the dvd, so I'll be staying busy.

I have another new script that I finished a couple of weeks ago. It's not 100% ready to work on yet, still need to do some tweaking, but I did send it to a script competition "As-Is," and right now it's been getting some great feedback! I'll share more news about it next week and let you know how things go. The big prize in the end would be a production deal for it.

And then still another script is in a "Spec-Script" competition, "Scriptapolza." So we'll see what happens. My theory is and will always be... throw enough darts at the board and you're bound to get one of them to stick one of these days.

So that's it for now, stuff to do so I'll sign off from here for now... peace!

A New Way To Watch, "1-900"

"1-900" is the first feature film I ever made. It has done well screening in festival and being sold in several markets overseas and here in the United States as well!
The film is about a female serial killer who uses "1-900" lines to stalk her prey and the two detectives bent on trying to catch her. It's a low budget thriller we shot back in 1995 and has been describe as, "A cross between, "Basic Instinct" and "9 1/2 Weeks," with a little "Pulp Fiction" thrown in as well."

You can buy the film at: and now I just learned you can stream it to your computer and watch it, simply by going to SRS

It's a film I'm very proud of because it's the first, but also because so many people worked really hard to make this one. Check it out if you get a chance and let me know what you think!

Snowmegeddon 2... the Blizzard!

So in case you haven't heard, we're getting pounding out here on the East Coast... the DC area... Silver Spring to be exact with snow and snow and more snow! It's been horrible over the last several days and not sure when it will all end.
The good news though is I have my edit system up and running and have been getting some really good work done cutting our special anniversary DVD for, "3 days... 3 hours... 3 minutes... 3 seconds..."
And I got some good news yesterday... an interview I need for the DVD should be coming very soon!

All in all that means, hopefully the DVD will get complete soon and you'll all get a chance to see what I've been so excited about for months!

And the Oscar/Independent Spirit Award Goes to???

I've mentioned this before, growing up I really wanted to win an Academy Award. There was something about watching the show on the East Coast in Brookline where I grew up and dreaming about being a filmmaker and being called up to the stage to accept the statuette and to try to say something kind of funny and touching that folks would remember forever.

Before my daughter, I always promised my Mom I would take her to the ceremony. I was young and innocent and movies were pure magic and I loved the whole idea of everything about them.

I still feel that way to a certain extent, but now lean more towards really wanting to win an Independent Spirit Award... dressing in something cool, yet casual and bringing my teenage daughter to the event so we can rub elbows with a clever mix of the old and new cool Hollywood... I know they claim to be indie, but there is still a ton of Hollywood involved. I mean when a small indie film is considered $17 Million dollars... it's still pretty Hollywood if you ask me.

But still, it would be great to be there... and like my Oscar speech, I've honed my Indie Spirit Award speech as well and if it doesn't get me in all of the clips of the night... it will definitely get me a date and a job out of winning! lol

As the Oscar nominations were unveiled today, the Indie Spirit nominations awhile back I still get that special feeling inside that I had as a little kid. That sense of excitement, like I can't wait until Santa arrives on Christmas eve. And at the same time, I am reminded that I don't make films because I want to win awards. I make films because I love the magic of it all. I make movies because I truly love to do it. I hope, maybe one day someone will see one of my films and use that as inspiration to go on and make their own film... to say to themselves, "Yes I can make films."
I wish all of the nominees all of the luck in the world, it IS an honor to be nominated... but to all of those out there making films who weren't nominated for anything and who make films because you love them and love the process... Congratulations... It's a honor to be a part of your fraternity!
