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 […]
This is a brief response to the review of the 2012 film Life of Pi written by Nick Schager of The Village Voice.
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 […]

So, tonight, after almost a month of play, and after completing all missions on Hardcore difficulty, I am now onto the final mission of Insanity difficulty. That, in itself, is probably not the biggest statement, however, this is coming from a guy who traded a burger for the first title in the series, and then […]
It probably doesn’t happen often in anyone’s lifetime, and, more so, perhaps, in my own cynical one, that a media text resolves in a way to reveals to you a pivotal shift in your world view.
