A Trip to Sundance 2013

On the early Wednesday morning of January 23, 2013, I was roaming through the northern hills towards Utah. Along with my buddies Matt, Bo!, and WoOlis, we had driven for close to 12 hours unexpecting what is to be expected at the biggest film festival event – Sundance 2013 – in the U.S.

Entering 2011 In Hollywood…

Hello All. It’s down to the stretch of a couple of days before the beginning of the new year. I’ll be headin’ down to Hollywood, Los Angeles with my buddy Bo (and possibly others) to check out Tinseltown with its glitz and glamor of movie making. I personally have never been to Hollywood…

More Film Exercises…

Over the weekend, I had shot and edited the following using my cheap miniDV camera using my bro, Stan, and Jerry as actors. They did quite a job, despite being non-actors. Took me 45 minutes to shoot it, and about half-a-day to edit it…

Film Exercise: "Meal Of The Night"

What you will see below is a short, short flick exercise that my bro Stan came up with as a quick (comedic?) dream sequence entitled “Meal of the Night”. We shot it in 3 hours, and he edited it. I’m just a stand-in actor…

Bye Bye Jon & Jolene

Bye Bye Jon & Jolene

I’ve known Jon & Jolene for about 3 months now. Having met them as a special effects team for my first short film “Hubris”, Jon was the kind of friend that I’ve been seeking for ages – someone I can relate to when it comes to subversive, deviant, and obscure flicks…

Yesterday morning, I was driving down to SJ to visit Luann & Allen because, she was on maternity leave and, he had a day off. Half-way there, I get a VM from Allen: “Uh, ray… Luann’s at the hospital… and… she’s about to give birth. So, uhm… I don’t think we can meet at 10am as planned…

Growing Up

Growing Up

Joline is married to Nathan (whom is a descendant of Nathaniel Hawthorne, hence the name). Wow, how the years have passed… I’ve watched Joline grow up since she was 14-years-old. I still see her as 14-years-old. (She hates it when I say that; I refuse to allow her to grow up.)…

Found Some Old Pics

Found Some Old Pics

I’ve recently dug out some old disposable cameras and an undeveloped roll of film. I took ’em down to the local Target and these are the pics I found. I have no clue the dates and events of these pics, but gauging that a lot of the pictures involved Belle being pregnant with Ethan, I’d say almost half-a-decade ago…
