Update for April 2013, New Toys

Hello everyone, this update has been a long time coming, and due to the pressures of work, has had a tortured entry into existence. Woo, my head is spinning… So, I have just wrapped on the feature Play it Safe, directed by Chris Pahlow, and featuring the most elongated production schedule you will have ever […]

Redesign and relaunch

Well, it has been some time since I last posted on here. For quite a while I toyed with the idea of dropping my website, seeing as I was no longer actively engaged in film production, for which this website was predominantly for. But, alas, I have a hoarding problem… So, instead, I have redesigned […]

Taegukgi – Humanism and Antihumanism
