  7. Tonight is the premiere of our short film Brownie Points. It stars the very beautiful and hilarious Sheila Daley and the wonderfully handsome and hysterical, Ben Mathes. It was directed by the fabulous Jenn Page of Luminave Films and shot & edited by yours truly, with the very talented Jason Dubin providing the special FX. The whole team of people behind this film made this one of our favorite projects to work on to date. This was one of the first films we shot on our Canon T2i and we used a Canon 24-70mm for most of the scenes with an appearance by the nifty fifty 1.8 for a few low light shots, as we shot mostly with available lighting. I’m also very excited to meet one of the screenwriters, Matthew W. Bertsch,  who flew in all the way from Bedford, New Hampshire! 

    Brownie Points" is a romantic comedy with a lot of heart. 

    "On their anniversary all Jake wants is to give his wife Sandy the most romantic day ever. However, when he can suddenly see her happiness meter, pleasing her might be harder than it seems."

    I can’t wait to see more great things come from this team! Not to mention, not wanting to wait to work on the next project with them!

    So tonight at 7:30 at the Raleigh Theatre in Hollywood, we’ll see it, for the first time unveiled on the big screen. I’m so nervous I might throw up on myself. We’re sold out so just a warning, don’t sit in front of the girl with the blue polka dot dress.

    See everyone there!!!!

  9. What to you do if you’ve just got dumped? Meet Millie.

    "Millie’s 101 Things" Shot on a T2i.

    A web series pilot I had the pleasure of editing just had it’s online release this morning. 

    About the show:

    After Millie’s 3 year relationship is ended via voicemail  and “armed with the realization that her relationship - and life in general - was more fantasy than reality, Millie sets out on a mission to replace her once naive outlook with ambition and as much self discovery as a girl can muster. 

    Thus “Millie’s 101 Things”  is born: a random list of things to complete in an effort to find amusement in an, otherwise, dim situation.  With the help of her best friend (and self proclaimed Ladies’ Man) Shane,  Millie is forced to connect to herself and the world around her, one adventure at a time. 

    This is one average girl’s, not-so-average way, of bouncing back.”

    Check it out and if you like it, please feel free to leave comments for the show’s creator over on their Facebook Fan Page.

    Oh and a big Happy Birthday to the star of the show, Desiree Abeyta!!!!

    Happy Thursday All!
