Long overdue for an update, and things are getting busy!
We are nearing the final shoot days of Vic Effects with Kissing Kastles Productions and have released our first teaser, which you can find on my main page and in this post! Excitement is building for this project and I really feel it's going to be something special.
First table read of my next film, Dracula: The Count's Kin with Pascarelli Productions, went off swimmingly and I'll be heading back to my home state of Indiana for two days of filming in the next couple months.
Lost In Love, a short rom-com written by Leilani Downer and directed by Jennifer Gillenwater was a finalist in the Chicago International Blow-Up Art House Film Festival, and earned a screening at the fantastic Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. I had to miss the festival itself but was delighted the cast and crew got experience our film up on the big screen with the other finalists.
Tin Roof is continuing through the post-production process. There is no specific timeline for release yet but make sure to subscribe to my newsletter so you don't miss the latest news!
In late March, I'll be sitting down for an interview with Travis Bruce, host of Horror Realm, a Youtube channel focused on all things horror. Check out his awesome interview with Kissing Kastle's Chris Shern!
I am in full swing directing for camera for the first time! I've had the pleasure of directing for the stage a handful of times, and as an assistant director for select segments of the ongoing web series D&D PHB PSA's: The Next Generation with Creative Juices 7th, but never taken the driver's seat for anything on camera. Co-Founder of Creative Juices 7th, Wes Whitaker has trusted me to direct a 6 episode spin-off series following Kimothy, a Sorceress Healer who has something to say about the way healer's are treated....and her recently resurrected (ex) girlfriend might have something to say about it too. We've filmed 2 episodes already, and I'm excited to see what this team can put together. It helps to have super talented actors with incredible patience for a newbie director!
Many more irons are in the fire, so keep an eye on this space and my socials for the latest!
