Things I Miss When I Take a Break from Social Media...

When you spend more than an hour glued to social media, you need to take a break. That was me for most of last year, so I turned off all notifications and went into hibernation mode where the social network was concerned.

Doing that is very freeing. Unfortunately, it makes you miss things like this:
"Amigas with Benefits" won the award for Best Short Film in the prestigious Imagen Foundation's 2nd Annual Imagen Awards for Short/Student Films and Web Series!

Amigas Imagen Award

Congrats to the entire cast and crew, but more importantly, many many MANY THANKS to all the people who voted for us!

"Amigas with Benefits" continues to make the rounds in the film festival circuit, so keep an eye out for it at a film festival near you (you can follow on Facebook for more up-to-date information)!

Coming to a Screen Near You: Amigas with Benefits, Entropy, and Bruising for Besos!

Nearly a year has passed since the last update! Yikes!

A couple of projects that I've worked on over the past year or so are making their way to a screen near you.

First up is "Amigas with Benefits," a short film I shot for writer/director Adelina Anthony.

"Amigas with Benefits" is a dramedy about two elderly women who have their wedding ruined by a family member. It premieres this July (next month) at Outfest 2017.

Next is Entropy, a sci-fi feature written and directed by Gabriel Anderson. I had the privilege of being the gaffer (a.k.a. chief lighting technician) on this daring film.

From the website:
A brilliant, but hermetic and hard-living woman discovers an anomalous cosmic force that projects the end of the universe to be a mere two weeks away. The terminal diagnosis for all existence compels her to confront her own fear and isolation, and leads her to pursue another woman who may offer the promise of salvation.
Entropy made its premiere at this year's IFS Film Festival, winning the award for "Best Science-Fiction Film." Visit the movie's website for information about future screenings.

And last, but definitely not least, Bruising for Besos is a feature film (also written and directed by Adelina Anthony) I gaffed a few years ago.

It has already had a successful run in festivals all over the world over the last year. It is still being showcased in community screenings across the country (definitely try to catch one near you!) and will be released online later this year.

Stay Cool

It's great being outside on a nice, sunny day, but remember to stay cool and hydrated during hotter weather.

Here's a little something I worked on earlier this year with A*light Picture and Wanderlust Hollywood. Enjoy!

Levity in Brevity

Friend and former film school classmate Terry Wesley and I have been collaborating on some web content during our downtime. The first few installments of Terry's comedy series, "20 Questions" (a parody of the Liam Neeson vehicle Taken), have just gone live on his YouTube channel. The videos are quick and fun to watch whenever you have a little lull in your day. If you've got a minute, check them out!
