HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2021: TOTAL SCREAM (Stab 3 News Coverage Scene)

This seasons Halloween clip comes in the form of a "news package" (from total SCREAM, from the film-within-the-film STAB 3), which was used as playback on a TV in a scene with Randy and Dewey at Dairy Queen.  Featuring myself and the news reporter who appears multiple times throughout the movie, Connie Zimmerman.  I hope to one day get the actual scene cut together but for now, here is what was playing on the TV in the scene!  Check it out HERE!

BEFORE THE STORM: 16th Anniversary

Sixteen years ago I co-directed a movie with Levi Obery.  Pictured above, is a behind-the-scenes still from one of the many nights shooting the living room scenes in my childhood home.  Eventually the movie was titled Before the Storm but take notice of one of the alternate titles on the slate.  This was one of many titles that were used during production.  Today we celebrate the movie's 16th Anniversary!  It is still available on DVD with a handful of Bonus Material - including a featurette, deleted scenes, "We Fall Down" music video from Aces Love, and its original theatrical trailer.  Some of this content can currently be viewed on its official Facebook page.  We did a full remaster last year which you can still stream for free on youtube HERE!

BROTHER OF IVER: The Sequel Arrives November 2021

 

Not exactly a film project but an announcement, as a new cast member is set to join our family in November.  This time around we created a faux movie poster to change things up a bit.  The design is inspired mostly by 90's horror, among other things that may have crept into the design.  Michelle Reyes and I took the photos of our opposing faces, and Jordan Zimmerman took the photo of Iver while he was here on Vacation earlier this year.  We did a few versions of the poster.  Most of them were horror themed but one version I also liked was looking more like a sci-fi movie (which I will hopefully dig up and post at some point in the future!?!).  For now, this is it!  Stay tuned for more info!

WORKING REMOTELY: 2021

 

 
While I was working remotely from home, at one point I was in transition between 2 shows.  So I had 2 work systems in my office/den, in addition to my own system.  This made for quite the command center of a setup for a little while.  The kid definitely enjoyed it as well.  Pictured above giving me editing tips.  My office is definitely still a work in progress, as I've only lived here for a few months now but it is coming along.  So far it has been wonderful to have a more dedicated space to work in both professionally and independently.

"FOOTLOOSE" (Holiday Music Video 2020)


In our follow-up to last Holiday Season's The Greatest Show music video, we bring you FOOTLOOSE!  Similar to last year, this one features all of our (My Wife & I's) siblings and their significant others - the shoots spanned over the course of the last 2 months in California (Sherman Oaks and Van Nuys), Illinois (Metamora, Germantown Hills, Peoria Heights, and Chicago), and Oregon (Portland).  It seems like a good way to socially distance shoot a project but honestly we used the exact same process last year.

Overall we ended up with more footage this year (2 hours more!), clocking in at over 7 hours of raw material for a song that is slightly over 5 minutes.  So the editing process was a little bit more time consuming.  Post-Production was carried out in Los Angeles and took over most of my December.  We finally locked and completed it at the break of dusk on Christmas Eve.  It premiered around 4pm that day.  No traveling home for the holidays this year.  So this video will have to spread all of our holiday cheer this season, with a punch!  Check it out HERE!
