I mentioned “Death Meets Toby,” one of the better short film experiences with a beautiful script. Here are some stills from director Adrián Lausell Cabán.
I’m so happy to share that “Murderer” is an official selection at both the Everybody Digital Film Festival and the Williamsburg Independent Film Festival. Congratulations to director Harry Boadu and producers Tom Ishizuka and Anne-Marcelle Ngabirano!
It’s not often that a script speaks to you on a very deep level. Death Meets Toby was that script. In Toby’s final moments, as he closes the garage door with the engine running, he travels deeply into his mind and hallucinates and revisits the fears and losses of his life. Beautifully written and sensitively […]
This was a real blast playing a father who gets caught with you-know-what on his laptop. He tries to pawn it off on his son, who is way ahead of him… Deftly directed by Elise Raven and expertly shot by Paul Ward, this piece has an edge in the midst of its humor. What fun […]
Very sensitively directed by Harvey Kingsley-Elton, this short tells the story of a young woman returning to her estranged family to save her brother from her overbearing mother. I got to play Paul, a dad who has given up on life but is pulled into the stormy relationships that bind the family together. Beautifully shot […]
Director Jingling Zhang sent me this picture from her short, “Weekday.” I play Andy, a single parent to a teenage daughter. Lovely experience with this creative team at NYU.
What a rare opportunity to shoot a film all in French, courtesy of talented director João Pedro Drumond. In an alternate reality, Jean Pierre (me) is a world famous photographer, arch nemesis to the protagonist Antoine (beautifully played by pro Pascal Yen-Pfister — It was my fortune to watch him work.). I was truly struck […]
Meaningful few days shooting a short from Columbia grad student Jingling Zhang. It’s a beautiful story about a single father (me) and his teenage daughter (intuitively played by Mika Wurf). I so enjoyed working with this production team. So smart and creative. Looking forward to our next time together!
Yes, I speak mostly fluent French, and my accent is not bad. But I’m an American, and from time to time, I must admit, an errant vowel sound comes out of my mouth when I’m speaking this beautiful — and very precise — language. In a recent short, Mise en Scène Des Morts, shot almost […]
One of the important lessons I’ve learned from Wynn Handman is that preparation is key. Even a quick moment to establish in your mind when/where/what/how. Not a class went by that Wynn didn’t emphasize the importance of the “when” of the scene, of the moment. Everyone has a different way of preparing (for me, music […]
