sjff_02_img0584I’ve emerged from an intensive writing sanctuary just in time.  The fests are beckoning once more.  I wonder if this is what it feels like to be a parent -  little time for a personal life, but our children are keeping the long hours of work mighty  interesting.  Regardless, it looks like we’ve got 2 exciting months ahead…

Needless to say, we are honored and humbled.

Pretty Scary smSPIT will also screen at the Pretty-Scary Bloodbath Fest and even DEATH IN CHARGE continues to forge new ground – first at the Taos Film Fest in New Mexico and then across the pond at a special screening with the Lund Fantastic Film Festival in Switzerland!  tRIPPIN’ will screen (along with DEATH IN CHARGE) at the Saint Regis Club in Warsaw, Indiana as part of a special screening series.

Indiana Sign 001I’m currently in snowy, but sunny Indiana getting ready for an evening of hot toddy with old friends. Finals and grades from last semester turned in. I’ve got 10 days ahead to focus on nothing but fests, film financing and our upcoming shoot as we march toward our next big production.
