Earlier this month, I attended the 2016 George Lindsey UNA Film Festival representing Foolish Henry Films and our short City Federal. It was a great weekend getting to meet and talk with filmmakers from all over the place and see their art on screen. The hospitality of the UNA staff was wonderful, and the city of Florence was beautiful. Lots of great restaurants and bars in the area.
There are two film-related things going on this weekend that I want to tell you about:
Two short films that I was able to help out with are screening at the event which is taking place this Saturday at 6pm at Pure Artistry Literary Cafe. It’s a formal event, so I might even wear a tux. We’ll see. Anyway, the two films I was part of are Just a Dash (I helped with sound and still photography) and Best Friends Forever (where I was co-director of photography – along with writer/director DeWayne Cunningham of Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions – and played a character named “Daniel Andre Wilson.”)
2. Spiritus auditions
On Sunday, writer/director L.C. Holt, production manager Rick Gardner, and I will be holding auditions for the upcoming horror feature Spiritus. We’re starting at 3pm at the Cloverdale Playhouse. For details and information, see this post on the Spiritus Facebook page.
My new shortfilm #BFFcjsv will be premiering March 19th at #CinemaSoiree2016 #OneNightOnly hosted by @dlovett14. 1 Time for My Shooter @joshcarples for all your hard work on this project.

I haven’t blogged much lately, and my social media presence has been somewhat scarce, so I figured I’d take a few moments to write about what’s been going on lately.
Recently, I served as director of photography for a short film called Land of the Freed, written and directed by Trishunda Mooney. Just prior to that, I got to do some acting and serve as co-director of photography with writer/director C. DeWayne Cunningham of Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions on his short Best Friends Forever.
I attended opening night of the Cloverdale Playhouse production of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, a very funny play (still going – get tickets ASAP!) that I also got to do some promo photography for.
I also took some time to do a little catching up on movies I’ve been wanting to see, including the new Star Wars, The Revenant, Knock Knock, The Green Inferno, and Triple 9, which is where the quote in this blog title came from.
And yesterday it was announced that Buck’s Row, in association with Foolish Henry Films, is holding a casting call for a new film called Spiritus, written and directed by L.C. Holt (V/H/S2, You’re Next, Pop Skull.) I’m very excited to be serving as 1st assistant director on that project.
Of course, I’ll update more as things progress. Thanks for reading!
