A lot going on...

A lot going on right now...

1. KILLING DOWN - my latest feature film is being distributed throughout Europe, the Middle East and Latin America. Still not sure when it will be showing up on DVD in these places, but it has to be very soon. Also, our domestic release should be this spring. We're very close to doing a DVD deal.

2. PINK - the web series is really doing well. We've now had 3.5 million views on YouTube alone. All told (on Myspace, iTunes, Revver, Metacafe, BlipTV and YouTube) we've had over 4 million views. This all since September - but really since Halloween. We've had several meetings regarding the future of the show, and should have some news by Christmas as to the direction (whether we'll be producing Season Two on our own again, or whether another company will come on board as a partner). Either way we hope/plan to shoot in February.

3. NEW "UNTITLED" FEATURE FILM - the new feature project is moving along well too. Not quite ready to release details of the film, but our script is done, we have an excellent casting director, and our financing is almost in place. In addition, we're already talking to several well-known actors about the project. If all goes well we could be rolling cameras by March - but that's probably too ambitious (see #2 above).

4. NEW WEB SERIES - we're actually looking at possibly TWO new web series. Details coming soon. The first one (which a lot of the footage already exist) will likely be released online in January 2008. The other one we're in talks about for later next year.

Whew! Like I said, a lot going on and a lot to keep up with. Luckily I'm pretty good at multi-tasking. :)

  • Any news on the release of the first season of Pink on DVD or HD download? At 720p 5mbps, it shouldn't be more than 600 MBs, so it can actually get sold in plain CDs (burned as a normal .mp4 h.264 file). I personally encode my HD videos in h.264 .mp4, and then I watch them on my HDTV, via my PS3 or the XBoX360 in HD mode. I prefer it over burning DVDs.

  • We're currently in talks with several larger outlets to distribute the show and then continue the series with them. So, for now we're in a slight holding pattern until we figure out what direction we're headed.

    But, we definitely plan to release a DVD (or HD-DVD) in the future. Very likely wait until we get 10 more episodes in the can. That way the DVD will have an hour's worth of show content, plus the extras. Make's it a more marketable product.

    As far as HD downloads, I am very interested in releasing the episods that way and actually in H.264 as you suggest. Again, just waiting to see what happens on these potential deals. I do foresee it happening though sooner rather than later.

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and TheWB.com. And speaking of TheWB.com, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network JTS.tv - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
