Short Film " Aids Test" ---- Fundraising Time

Hello Everybody,

This is how it goes, this is how fundraising starts these days for independent films. The more people we get this out to, the more likely we'll get funding. This is an all or nothing fund raising, so if we're $5 short, we don't get the full funds. So, by all means please forward this on to anyone you know that might be interested in helping out this great project.

Please check out this link and get informed about our upcoming film called "Aids Test". Thanks for all the support, and try to qualify for a good reward. Reward details are within the link below.

Movie Update on "Inception"

There's nothing more relaxing than going to the movies all by yourself. Especially seeing a movie that requires as much concentration as the Leonardo DiCaprio blockbuster Inception. I was very lucky to still catch this on the big screen over the weekend in Early October.

I'm not one to get too excited about special effects, but they were very important for this movie, being that half the movie reflects someone's dream. We all know anything can happen in our dreams and that's what they were going for. The cinematography was excellent, and the acting was right on point. I don't want to spoil the movie for those who haven't had the chance to see it, but the ending is left open. Meaning its up to the audience to decide what they want to believe. I most definitely recommend this movie.

12 Floors Up

I was happy to have the opportunity to come in as producer on "12 Floors Up", a dark comedy that follows movie producer Spencer Hawkins as he tries to survive a pretentious Manhattan cocktail party. As he attempts to navigate his way through the evening unscathed, Spencer stumbles upon eccentric guests, annoying stories, and a murder.

Official ActorFest 2010 After Party

Well, this was a special night for me for many reasons, one being, it was the first night that I was able to convince Liz N. that our 3 month old son Kingston would be fine with a babysitter. We got all dressed up and stepped out to the Official ActorFest after party at club Slate. I thought this would be a good event to do a little networking with all the aspiring actors, directors, and producers while spending a lovely night with my wife. It seems that many people thought Liz had to be an actress. Maybe in the future I will have to see if she could pull off being more than an extra. The night was a major success I was able to exchange business cards and meet many interesting people. I have included a couple pictures for viewing.
