The best self reflective purchases I made at #SanDiegoComicCon2014.
When my personal energy feels a bit low and I am cranking out pages of documents for scripts, I head to the fridge and take a look at images from 3 Films that inspired my love for cinema as a child, teen, young adult, and today. A short list from the pantheon of filmmakers I hope to inhabit as a cinematic contributor with my sci-fi/fantasy/supernatural horror, action thriller #Otherworld. Ah, dreaming the good dream. ; )
NEW DIRECTOR SHOWREEL 2013-14
Gus McArthur - Music Video Promo
GHOST LOG LINE: Four musicians on their way to a late night band meeting are subjected to strange phantasmic forces that propel them on a late night supernatural journey. It’s the strangest night they have ever encountered, one they will never forget.

Preparing for the upcoming release of my New Music Video “GHOST”
Been MIA for a while on Tumblr. What a year!
A great deal has happened and yet not happened, still awaiting for things to kick in. One thing for sure is that I am working smarter than harder. Still, the work is demanding much of my focus, all amidst personal change and a future change of residency in the works, possibly over seas. Crossing my fingers! One day at a time. For now, here are some sneak peak images from my upcoming music video GHOST for the up and coming classically inspired metal band Gus McArthur. GHOST will debut in early October. Just in time for all things that go bump in the night.

My Current Directors Reel for Music Videos
For all my friends who love eerie sci-fi . The top photo reminds me of the 3 fingers from the alien in the original “War of The Worlds”. I always ask myself this question, “If Orson Welles was going to make a Horror film today what would he do?”
Something to ponder. :)
GIVE YOUR SOUL SISTERS A HAND
For 2013, I wish for a ballsy enough woman to frankly call out, confront and lay down the real face cards about the double edge swords and unconscious fears continually projected onto single female directors and women professionals out there in film land without getting the boring mathematical percentile stats, blah, blah blah or worn out hypocritical gender backlash. It’s 2013 for gods sake! Obama’s inaugural speech doesn’t mean shit if no one believes in it in the first place. Give your soul sisters a hand, trust me we’ll all be better for it. The topic has become more taboo than talking about same sex marriage. Very lame indeed.
Moving the office space around. Getting the new energy flowing in room. One day hopefully sooner than later I can finish that Bowie portrait. If it is a prosperous year I can get a bigger space and get my easel and oil paints out and keep them set up all the time. Come on 2013!
IT CAME TO MIND TODAY: 2013
IT CAME TO MIND TODAY: 2013, it’s a good year to break patterns and spread tangible reciprocal support, create new opportunities and expand creative collaborations with groups and people outside of the insular comfort zone. I think 2012 was a year in personal survival, internal growth and steady self achievement. However, I hope this year many individuals within creative communities will make the effort to spread the dynamic possibility of going beyond mere self advancement and attainment. I’m rooting for the folks that almost lost it all in 2012 or never got their chance or break or had to go it alone or scrape by to make it to the next day and through a tough year. 2013, seems like the perfect paradigm-shift kind of year for giving back and opening up the creative and spiritual circles a bit wider.
