New Trailer!

So, we were at the CT film industry mixer last night. They had an open bar which was pretty exciting, and (long story short) I ended up assaulting former U.S. president Bill Clinton. The secret service were really on their A-game too. Had me off him in like a second.

Also, the new teaser trailer for The Ward was showing. People seemed to like it, so here it is now, online, for your viewing pleasure.

Older short films

Hey everyone. I'm starting to post up some older short films (which I promised would be here yesterday, yes I know).

This one is called Elm City Wuxia. It swept the awards at the Reel New Haven film festival when it premiered and involved many, many sleepless nights to make the submission deadline. It's a more moody, experimental work than what I would typically do, but you'll note I still managed to work in a sword fight.

Vampires Don't Sparkle: the movie

 So what exactly is this movie about?

Without giving too much away, it's the story of a girl named Ava meeting an unusual and mysterious boy named Sid. Suffice to say, there's a lot more to Sid than meets the eye. If you're thinking Twilight but with vampires that are actually scary, you're not too far off the mark.

I've always been a big vampire fan, and, like a lot of people, found the idea of sparkling vampires to be outrageous. I'm pretty sure a piece of my soul died the first time I heard about it. This movie is a response to that outrage, and should please anyone who grew up watching movies like The Lost Boys and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The more people pledge on kickstarter, the more blood and action we can promise. So head over there and check it out now :)
