I Hate Tuesdays (well, most of it anyway)

It was one of those days that sort of punched me in the snotbox and only occasionally let me up for air.

I’m talking about today. Tuesday. June 23rd. 2009.

Yes. Tuesday.

It’s the hottest day of the year today. I woke up this morning and knew it was going to be sticky and gross. Minnesota. Land of 10,000 lakes …

48 Hour Film Project – Part 3 (Sunday & Screening)

Well, mercifully, this post shouldn’t be as long as the last couple. Sorry ’bout that. Suffice it to say, there’s a lot that goes into these goofy little films we make. What I posted yesterday? That was about a fraction of the hijinx that happened on the set of good ol’ FutureSand.


When we last left our heroes…

I …

48 Hour Film Project – Part 2 (Saturday)

It’s Saturday morning…who’s gonna play with me??? 6 in the morning baby, I gotta long day ahead of me.

The Music Box Theater. Our home for 12+ hours…

I swear that was the song (by the Eels) playing in my head when I woke up ready to tackle our movie. The script for FutureSand was done and all I had …

48 Hour Film Project – 2009 – PART 1 (Friday)

Greetings! (echo, echo…)

Well, it’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since High School Drifter was shot and shown at the Riverview Theater, but it’s true! I’ve been busy this last month getting ready for this year’s showdown and last night with about 4 minutes to spare, we got our newest film completed and turned in to compete …

High School Drifter – Original Cut

Hey Tappers,

I guess I’ve waited long enough to post this, eh? This here, is the original, festival cut of our 48 Hour Film Project entry “High School Drifter.”

I’m embarassed to say the video quality suffers quite a bit from the few conversions I had to do to get it here, but the real version is beautiful, DVD quality …

High School Drifter…On YouTube?

Hiya kids.

Just a real quick update. I’ve had a lot of folks ask if I’ll be able to put High School Drifter (my new film) on YouTube.

The answer, unfortunately, is no.

And why, you might ask?

Well, it’s sort of complicated. Since we used a couple of SAG actresses in our film, we aren’t allowed ot post it …

Seriously, Minneapolis. You’re Too Kind…

Hiya Tappers,

Well, it took every ounce of my strength not to rush home last night after the screening of “High School Drifter” and tell you how well I thought it went. We watched 11 short films last night. Some were really pretty good. Some were downright awful.

My little film (HSD) for short, played 3rd from the end. Not …

Dun, Done, Dun, Done!!!

So, it’s Tuesday night here in ol’ Woodbury, Minnesota and I’m about as excited as a fella can get. I’m completely rested up from our mad-dash weekend of filmmaking and I’m so pumped about how things turned out, I just can’t stand it.

My new film (written and directed by yours truly) is called High School Drifter and it turned …

Jack of All Somethings, Master of Whatevs

Hey there. You still hanging around this joint? Yeah? Well, let me slap your hand. Thanks for being there for me. Seriously, if you come to my house…Pancake Puffs. All you can eat.

And yes…I’m the worst. I’ve yet to show you the magic of P-Squared, but I assure you, once I make it through this coming weekend, all shall …

Stuff’s Happening

All kinds of stuff is happening around here these days. Here’s the Cliff Notes Version:

– Goodhalo is about 3 days from being done enough for me to read it, tweak it and send it to my 5 or so beta-reader peeps. (Clear a week out, people. You know who you are. It’s coming…)

– I’m going to write/direct a …
