The 100 Hour Film Race and the Top Twenty

Back in December, I participated with a group of friends in a film competition called the 100 Hour Film race. We called ourselves the Pixelsmyth Workshop, a production company/ freelance network that is currently in the works. The gist of the race is, you have to make a film in 100 hours. You are given … Continue reading

2012 In Review

Well, I may be a few days late to the game but here I am! Reviewing my 2012 and setting up my goals for 2013. It’s been a hard couple of years. Family drama, personal drama, moving several times have all made it difficult to find my focus and really get close to my projects. … Continue reading

Musicals, Rewrites, Hipsters, Oh My!

As some of you may know, I have been heavily involved in bringing a movie musical to life. It has kind of made thinking about other projects difficult (though I continue to plug along). When I say heavily involved I mean…I’m singing, acting, and rehearsing. Often. And when I’m not doing those things, I’m thinking … Continue reading

Joss Whedon Avenged

It’s about time. I have been watching Joss Whedon shows for years – if you know anything about me, you know that he is my idol.  I love everything he creates. The man and Buffy Summers basically raised me. Firefly was a revelation, and I was a Dollhouse fan even when others couldn’t quite get … Continue reading

Velvet Goldmine, or the End of Glam Rock

I’m surprised I’ve never seen this film before last night. Given the A List cast and the themes, I’m shocked I never stumbled upon it before this. But Velvet Goldmine is now Watch Instantly on Netflix, so that is exactly what I did. I had no idea what to expect, really. But a ridiculously young … Continue reading

In Which the Blog Gets Face Lift

As some of you may have noticed, I have given the blog a new look. Do not be alarmed – this is the same old blog, just with a few different features. Part of the reason for this is that I plan to use this blog as kind of a home page for myself – … Continue reading

In Which I Review “The Last Airbender”

For anyone who has ever seen the Nickolodeon show, Avatar: The Last Airbender, the coming of the movie by M. Night was thoroughly exciting. The show, even for kids were already in high school when it came out (ahem, me) was exciting, interesting, and mainly just a really good show. Yes it cheesy at times … Continue reading

In Which I Learn About Directing

It’s strange to think that only a few weeks ago I was writing about Thanksgiving and now Christmas is around the corner. I’m not going to talk about Christmas.  Christmas is being talked about by far too many people right now anyway. But I feel, because of the holiday and the new year, this strange … Continue reading

Exciting news! A short film I assistant directed last November has been accepted in the Denver International Film Festival! This is the 2nd film in a row from this director that has gone to the festival (the first I acted in). You can check him out at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2511052/. His name is Benjamin Garst and his … Continue reading

In case you didn’t know..

Hello. I’m new here. I usually don’t do this sort of thing (in fact, in middle school I refused to write a journal entry as part of an assignment, on the grounds that it was unfair to force one to share one’s feelings.), but I’m making an exception for a few reasons: a.) Everyone else … Continue reading
