Film and tacos… kinda

Just a few quick updates here…

One of my tweets ended up on the Montgomery Advertiser in a story about a candlelight vigil for a Taco Bell that burned down recently.


This weekend also signals the return of the Montgomery Film Festival. Check out more about the festival and the films that will show on their website.

They are also bringing back their famous intermission with fake advertisements. (Here’s a link to the one my friend Royce Williams and I submitted last year. Warning: language NSFW.)

Also, festival director Anton Jackson was busy working on the new “Capital Carnage” spot this weekend:

And in other film festival news, my new documentary Commit to the Song: The Joe Thomas Jr. Guitar Pull will screen at this year’s George Lindsey UNA Film Festival in Florence, AL.

More news coming soon. Thanks for reading!


Now – [late] Feb. 2017 updates and announcements


I did one of these earlier this month and already need to update it…

I’ll start with the updates. Along with normal life and work stuff, this is what I’m working on:

  • Still working on edits for the short film Lullaby by writer/director Ce Anderson
  • Still working on edits for some cast/crew interviews from the feature film Spiritus by writer/director LC Holt
  • Editing a music video for Brineaboy that we shot this past weekend in Nashville (if I had time, I could write an entire post about how great that shoot was… but it’ll have to wait for now.. search for #brineaboyvid on Insagram for photos.)
  • I’ll be editing Feb. 2017 Guitar Pull photos soon
  • Working on a longer-term film project that I’ll announce publicly once I get further into it

Now for some announcements:

  • I mentioned last week that Four Thousand Wings, Best Friends Forever, and The Pretty Brunette were all screening at the upcoming George Lindsey Film Festival in Florence, AL.
  • Four Thousand Wings will also be on Amazon soon. I’ll post about it once it’s officially available to view.
  • Next solo acoustic performance will be Friday, March 3 at Head on the Door in Montgomery, AL. I’m opening for Breaking Aim and the Rhythm for their album release show.
  • Also, I will be releasing a live 5-song EP and video performance soon. This project was made possible by filmmakers C. DeWayne Cunningham and Sylvester Folks, along with Jen Powell, Malerie Bussell, and the rest of the kind folks of Seville Beauty & Barber Shop.
  • The poster for Spiritus was release this week:


Thanks for reading. More coming soon!

Quick film updates

Just a couple of quick updates:

1. The first review of Spiritus is up at the Horror Movie Freaks website.

 “A slow burning tale of a spectres revenge and learning your actions have consequences…even beyond the grave!” 4/5 stars.

Read the entire review here.

2. The George Lindsey UNA Film Festival is going on March 2-4 in Florence, AL. If you happen to be in that area on March 2, Four Thousand Wings is screening, along with two films written and directed by my friend C. DeWayne Cunningham of Carolyn Jean’s Son VISIONS – Best Friends Forever and The Pretty Brunette.

See the 2017 schedule here.

More coming soon…

Stuff to do: Holiday edition, part 1

Here are some things going on this week that you might just want to check out:

Thursday, the Honey Tree Band is at Head on the Door in Montgomery. Their music is described as “blues, funk, roots rock.” Details here.


The Nick in Birmingham has this lineup: The Great American Breakdown, Bearhead, Hail the Titans. You know you want to be there. Details here.

For those in Montgomery, you should stop by Head on the Door and see my friends Swank Sinatra. They’re from Atlanta. They’re good. They’re entertaining. They’re nice. Details here.


The Smokehouse way up in Florence, Ala. is hosting Refuse the Fall, Rowe and Hail the Titans. Oh… and it’s all ages, so if you’ve got friends or family in or near Florence, please spread the word. Details here.

That photo is a bit bigger than the amount of text…

…so talking about the next event will have to be delayed by a few words…

…these words here, to be precise…


So if you’re in Montgomery on Saturday, I encourage you to check out “The TACKIEST Holiday Party EVER!” It’s hosted by Montgomery’s River Region Rollergirls at Santa Barbara on Vaughn Rd. Details here.

Also, Hail the Titans released our music video yesterday for “I Am Become Death.” Big thanks to everyone involved (full cast and crew list here.) Again, thank you to everyone who helped make this video happen. Your help and support is very much appreciated.

Most of the filming was done in one day. (The opening scene was re-shot at a later date.) We had close to four hours of raw footage that was condensed down to the 5:13 run time. I think I lost track of how many hours of editing it took (15? 20?), but thanks to Hillary Andrews for allowing me to commandeer her computer for that length of time.

If you haven’t seen the finished product yet, here it is:
