Watch Two Night Stand Two

Just finished today! It’s been six years, and Jennie and Steve are waking up in bed together again. Why does this keep happening? And in case you need a refresher, here’s what happened six years ago. Sorry about the fuzzy video. YouTube is a lot better now. Wow! I didn’t even plan those shots to […]

Two Night Stand Two

I haven’t really made a live action movie since the summer of 2004, when I directed my not-very-short film Two Night Stand. In the meantime I’ve done some animation, and Truth @ 15 Frames Per Second which wasn’t exactly “shot” so much as it was “recorded.” My main focus during that time has been editing […]

First was the “Cinematographer vs. Producer” video in which a comically clueless producer has the ABSOLUTELY INSANE plan to shoot a feature film on a […]

Do it Yourself

I have a never-ending need to understand the tools I work with, and the new tools that might help me make movies in better and less expensive ways. It’s why I continue to build my own computers and insist on understanding how to run the Mac OS on those computers. It would be a lot […]
