Walking the Plank with Captain Fin

This week I had the pleasure of shooting some on set production stills for a short film titled "Captain Fin", a beautiful little 35mm fable, written and directed by my friend Kevin O'Neill. We had a 2 day shoot between the windy shores of New Smyrna Beach, to the 35mm Soundstages of FullSail University. We had a blast on set, and also got to work with the most talented Spencer Locke (From movies such as Resident Evil: Extinction & Monster House). I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how this one turns out!

Twas the night before Christmas...

Whilst in a late night frenzy before Christmas morning, and the sleep fairy ironically on break for the evening, I wanted to update on a few items that have been happening lately.

I recently took a return trip to Los Angeles, to conquer some meetings and see some friends, and continue what I set out to do in the cut-short October trip. Overall went very well, and definitely opened some new doors and some new friendships. I have decided to line up 3 feature length screenplays to be finalized in the first quarter of 2010, and also go into production of a new Zombie web serial... details coming soon. I can guarantee you, it's going to be a helluva year!

For now, I had better attempt this whole sleep deal, before my 13 year old half sister wakes up at 4am, demanding to see what Santa was brought...

Driving Miss Cryptidz

After filling myself with as much food as I could handle, Melanie and I drove back to Orlando to prepare for a long evening with the local Horror Punk band Cryptidz. Led by Metal legacy Kam Lee, and our score composer extraordinaire (and Green Hell Bassist) Rob Reider, we had made plans to shoot some new band photos, and a music video for their song "2:22 - It's Time To Die", based off of our short film. The shoot went well, prepare to see some crazy composite shots of the guys "dealing" with some of their favorite cryptid creatures. The music video was shot all around Downtown Orlando at night, using the new Canon 5D. The video also stars Tara Lightfoot (the lead in 2:22), as she spends another horrific evening trying to dodge the gnarly seemingly-undead band members. Luckily no one was injured (too badly) and everyone successfully escapred any police interference. Editing has commenced, so check back for new photos and the music video! Hear the song HERE on the Cryptidz MySpace page.

Turkey Day Recap

For Thanksgiving this year, we ended up spending a couple days with my Inlaws, in their lovely lakeside home in Inverness, FL (the same lakeside home we shot The Night Owl in so many years ago). A relaxing time eating large amounts of food and learning to play Mexican Train Dominoes and Golf (card game). I spent the rest of the weekend lining our house with about 1,200 Christmas lights (of which we had to take some back twice, due to incorrect color labels on the boxes) and shooting new material for the punk band Cryptidz...
