I’m over the moon right now, about a project that’s now well underway. I’m about to direct a web series, tentatively titled Game On and my collaborators are wonderful. There are my writing collaborators Keisha Zollar and Zoe Samuel, who are each enormously talented, but together they come at the story with such wonderfully different ideas, which are then honed. Working with them creatively is a relaxed and productive experience. Laura Swisher is our resourceful and talented producer, who is managing to make sense of paperwork I couldn’t understand with a translator. Honestly, this is the most fun I’ve had on a project in a long time, not that my past work wasn’t fun. Burning Up! is at the submitting-to-festivals-phase, and I’m proud of that film, but there’s something about being in the thick of it that just gets my heart pounding. Excelsior!
The production photo collection from the film Burning Up! Congratulations to everyone for not just doing a professional job, but looking good doing it.
Burning Up! is finally finished and live. It’s a musical product of the Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop at BMI. Thanks to the cast and crew who worked very hard on this, I’m proud to call it my latest film.
How cool is this? Paper statues. Left to sit, they look like stone, but lift them and well… you get the idea. Wonderful spin on a classic medium.
I wanted to update you all on what’s happening behind the curtain at Man Powered Films. At the moment, I’m working on a few projects, and two will be coming good in the next few weeks. The first, is Burning Up!, the musical by Pam Grayson and Rick Bassett. The edit is done and now, because this is a film and not a live show, Rick is using the magic of postproduction to sex up the sound design, which was pretty amazing to begin with, so this thing is going to rock. Second, I’m working with Jordi Magomero on finishing a video art project about magic we started with the participation of the talented Teutonic Tobias Dostal, yet another magician, artist, and friend of mine. I look forward to showing you all the amazing work that’s been put into these projects, but for now, sadly, I have to keep you waiting. Until next time!
