The Cleveland Screening was a great success!

Many thanks to all those who joined us Wednesday night for the Cleveland screening of The Quiet Arrangement. Word on the Cleveland streets is that the film is the talk of the town (as is the trailer for John Delserone's legendary short film Corner Pocket).

Today the film will be screening at the CONFLUENCE sci-fi convention in Pittsburgh, PA. Check the link for more info. Showtime is 6pm.

Now our job is to make a big push to really get the film distributed so the rest of the world can see it.

If anyone has any reviews of the film, let us know!

It's been a long time...

It appears as if I have been neglecting this site. The truth is...I have. But today I will not neglect it and I will give a proper update.

Part of the neglecting is due to work on our first "real" feature film, The Quiet Arrangement. I say "real" only because I have made two features before on videotape that are complete and utter garbage. So we'll just say that those don't count...because they don't.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand: we started shooting piecemeal in January and are looking to complete the film entirely by the end of April. I am almost finished with principle photography and I have already begun the editing process. Things are shaping up wonderfully and, although I'm nervous as hell, I think we'll have a great picture at the end of this.

Tomorrow we shoot some more in Youngstown, Ohio (the city where I came into this world) and draw even closer to completing this arduous task. Our budget consists of a credit card and my crew is my family and friends. My actors continue to kick ass for free and impress me to no end. This team is #1...

Enough of my yapping. Check out the trailer...

The 48 Hour Film Project

Well, after a weekend of great fun, lotsa work, and a dose of sheer terror, the team assembled by Ryan Fuhrig and Ryan Covert (Astrosmash) managed to complete our entry for Pittsburgh's 48 Hour Film Project.

Of all the genres to randomly pull from the hat, the only one that I didn't want was HORROR.

So take a guess as to what we drew...

Anyway, I think I've come out the other side a better filmmaker for it. At least, I hope that I have. I've never liked horror films (there are exceptions: THE SHINING, PRINCE OF DARKNESS, THE THING, PSYCHO) and I only attempted one once (a long time ago as a kid, and it featured bloody donuts that didn't look very bloody...thus, the end of my horror filmmaking exploits) and had resigned myself to the fact that I would have no interest in trying to make one ever again.

Until this past weekend, that is...

So, I had an idea to base our film on an actual event that occurred not far from where I live. I had seen some of the other horror entries for past 48 Hour Projects, and they were all goofy and really not worth a damn. And I didn't want to do that...not at all. So I figured I would go with something so real and terrifying that it would have to work...because it really happened...

Wow...I couldn't have been more right...

I'd like to think that I've made a truly disturbing piece of work. Now, art, by its very nature, is subjective, and there will always be people who disagree. I'm sure that there are horror film buffs who will think that our effort is timid and hardly worth its salt. But I do know that, even after shooting it, cutting it, and going over it twenty times looking for technical flaws, there are scenes in the film that really bother me. It's actually hard for me to watch, and that fascinates me.

Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely proud of the film and I think that it's incredibly effective. Everyone gave 150% and helped to get it done within the requirements and parameters of the contest. My actors gave amazing performances that help to sell the film, the effects are the best I've ever had, and the film looks really good. But the subject matter and what we attempt to depict are very difficult for me to understand and wrap my head around. And, to me anyway, the film is so good that it renders these horrifying events with such an authenticity that it creeps me the hell out.

So there's my two bits on my new film STILL. It'll be up for the world to see very premieres at the 48 Film Project Screening Tuesday, June 17th, in Carnegie, PA at 7 pm. If there's anyone around the Pittsburgh area, come out to the Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall and check out our film, as well as all of the other entrants for the 48 Hour Film Project. It will, at the very least, be interesting...
