In December, I published a “Now” post, and maybe this one would be better titled “Lately,” but I’m not going to change it, so it’s another “Now” post. The other day a friend texted me and mentioned that I had been recently keeping a low profile, so I thought maybe it’s time for a blog update.
Last month was the 2016 Cinema Soiree where I got an audience choice award for “Best Actor in a Supporting Role” for my role as “Daniel Andre Wilson” in C. DeWayne Cunningham’s short film Best Friends Forever. I had no idea I was even up for anything, but it was definitely a nice surprise.
DeWayne is also the editor for Trishunda Mooney’s short Land of the Freed, which I served as Director of Photography for. (Terrible Master Films is an associate producer for this one as well.) I’m told that the first edit is done, so it’s well into post-production.
Along with that, I’ve been working on a song with a former band mate, and I recently spent some time in Nashville where (thanks to my friend Tara) I was able to catch the Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra) solo acoustic tour featuring Casey Crescenzo (The Dear Hunter) as the opener.
This past weekend, I was able to serve as 2nd Assistant Director and 2nd Assistant Camera on a short film in Atlanta called The Talk with a fantastic cast and crew. So many good times.
There will be some announcements coming soon about the film Spiritus, so be sure to ‘like’ the Facebook page for updates.
And… I’ve got a couple of acoustic shows coming up:
Thursday, April 28 – I’m playing the annual truck raffle fundraiser for Brantwood Children’s Home.
Saturday, May 7 – I’m performing at Head on the Door with The Buckrabbits and Andrew Vinson.
