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.

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.
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.
People can be just as disruptive and eruptive as volcanos or earthquakes
Amazing how people can be just as disruptive and eruptive as volcanos or earthquakes. A true reflection. Life is too short to live like a festering steaming epicenter under the earth’s crust. Be more like a meditative lake, that way if you do decide to make a splash well at least you have a clearer point of reference about what the splash is about instead of showing a display of repressed emotions as a means of force trying to shake others off steady ground by spewing hot magma, debris and smoke all over the place.
Check out Hot Spot Radio Online tonight 6:30 Pacific Time & 9:30 Eastern Time I will be joining DJ Skyler, DJ Bolo and Alo Moniz live on Skype from San Diego, California for the evening show broadcast out of Philadelphia, PA.
Sophia Segal is one of the most beautiful hidden-gems out there on the internet. Her music and short-films contain a dark expressionistic feel that journeys deep into the heart of man’s darkest subconscious; the human psyche becomes a bleak and sexual landscape and everything that we are is laid bare.
One of the most intelligent women I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking to, and an artist I deeply admire.
If you have never seen my photographic excursions and the documentary shots I took while working on location in Pennsylvania, please feel free to have a looksie. I’d love to share them with all of you. Enjoy! : )
MY GOOD MAN - part 5 Halloween Short Now Online!!!
"MY GOOD MAN" is the last short in the 5 part Halloween Short Series. I believe I am the only person to date that turned one of my favorite film characters "The Invisible Man" into quite a lovable bull-shitting, douche bag of a mooch. Many thanks to Benny Earl Sanches and his great ad-libs and Andy Flaster’s facial expressions. Enjoy!!!
PS Thanks for your patience while I battled a cold over the Halloween holiday.
