"The Burden of Choice" on IMDB, Mini Cast Reunion


The Burden of Choice, along with its official poster, is now listed on IMDB. While I was editing this page, I also took the time to update the poster on the Halina page.

Also last week I had a mini WM Production crossover event at Ripley-Grier Studios! I enlisted the voices of Hannah Jane McMurray (Halina), Patricia O'Neil (Halina) and Elisa Pupko (The Burden of Choice) to help me record some radio work for my job. It was an exciting reunion and it's ALWAYS a pleasure to direct these talents. 

If this isn't a "meaty" enough crossover for you, pay close attention to the first scene in The Burden of Choice when you see it. There are references to both Halina AND Purgatory Comics...

"The Burden of Choice" Preview Scene


I'm excited to reveal this teaser/preview for The Burden of Choice! For best video quality, you should make sure to click the little "HD" icon and pick 1080p.

As of this writing, the film is 98% finished. DP Marc did an excellent color correction job last week, and this week our friend Ken at Sound for Indies is wrapping up the final audio mix. Also I need to finish the end credits.

The final cut is on track to being exactly 13 minutes long . . . so you can imagine why I wouldn't want to make a full trailer for this at 2-minutes or more. But I hope you guys enjoy this scene and I hope it gets you as pumped for the film as I am. Also, I absolutely love the score from returning composer Steve Goldstein; you'll get a little tease of that in this clip as well. Enjoy!

"The Burden of Choice" Poster Revealed!

Check out the official poster for the upcoming short film The Burden of Choice, which should be completed in January/February 2016. Click to view full size!

The short is roughly 12 minutes long, so it's not the kind of project I'd cut a 2-minute trailer for. However I will be whipping up a little 15-second tease over the next couple of days and posting it to my Twitter account, so be on the lookout for that!

20 Minutes Gone Episode 9: Pranks


The ninth episode of 20 Minutes Gone is now online! Cousin Steve returns to reminisce about some of the pranks we've pulled together that still crack us up - even if they are not clever at all...

20 Minutes Gone Episode 8: Big Trouble


This episode has been available for a little bit but I completely forgot to post it on the blog. Whoops. 

Funny too, because this is one of my favorite episodes yet. The guest host is my brother Paul, and we each tell a story about a time we got in some serious trouble. Mine involves being arrested in college over an incident with a maxi pad...you should give this show a listen.
