A Colossal Wrap-up
It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I updated this blog. Why is that? Am I spreading myself too thin? Perhaps I need to pull some of my many projects into one place. (Perhaps I’ve already been doing that on Facebook?) Perhaps I need to rethink my blogs, podcast, and website and make them all one sticky blob of a website.
But not tonight.
No, tonight I’ll be giving a run-down of things that are going on in my world. Ready?
THE 360 | 365 FILM FESTIVAL
During my day job at Animatus Studio, I’ve been working my tail off with a new uber-website. The Rochester High Falls Int’l Film Festival is now called 360 | 365, and the website is its public face. It’s a daring new identity, and I’m really invested in making this year’s film festival better than ever.
Remember The Other Gods? It’s playing in Buenos Aires. Yeah, that’s cool.
Love classic horror movies? My horror-movie-music-video-mash-up for Aviary’s Skeletal Remains is playing at The Little this Halloween.
Do I have a new career as an actor? Well, let’s put it this way — I only go out for silent movies. Mike Russo’s Virgin Fang features me and was edited by… me.
No clips for those last two on the internet yet, but you can see each at The Little Theatre’s 25 Hour Horror Feast October 31st.
And then there’s Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated. Honestly, it’s too complicated to explain here, but there’s clips over on the Subterranea blog.
The John Vincent movie project is chugging along. We shot several scenes this summer, including a zombie congregation of epic proportions. I put on my assistant director hat and got out there to wrangle zombies — a great experience. We’re working on editing a promotional trailer to present to investors.
ROCHESTER MOVIE MAKERS
Another summer, another series of summer shorts. I worked as A.D. on Wing Man, written by Mike Russo and directed by Derrick Petrush. It’s currently being edited, but the footage I’ve seen is pretty darn impressive.
RMM also hosted a night of shorts at the Club at Water Street a couple weeks ago. We had about 100 people, raised some cash for the 501c3, and we’re looking forward to doing it again in the future.
