Or at least according to this intelligent and thoughtful review of Lo on Amazon. I actually love getting reviews like this, as they remind me how different we all are and also how silly some people can be. If I’m offending someone then I’m doing my job. What truly irks me about the review isn’t the “liberal agenda” or the call to Satanism (sigh), but the fact that this ignorant little coward is so insecure about the film, that they needed to go and spoil the twist ending in their …

I received a Google alert this morning informing me that a bad ass little bar in Brooklyn, New York is screening my demon love story, Lo! I did a little digging on the place and found out they have a T.A.R.D.I.S. in the bar, and do screenings of Doctor Who and other British sci-fi on a regular basis. I am honored to have my film screened at a place that appreciates the finer things in life. I wish I could be there.

I couldn’t believe it. Someone forwarded me an article about Microsoft and Activision pulling out of a company called GAME. The writer describes the event like this: “GAME is still dragging its broken legs behind itself as it crawls across a field of broken glass, suffering further indignity today with reports that both Microsoft and Activision have decided to pull back their support of the company.” The header photo used in this article is the picture you see attached to this blog. The Demon Lo, dragging is broken body towards …

Or at least NetFlix seems to think that if you enjoy Spartacus then you’ll friggin’ love Lo. Dearest Netflicks…how the hell did you come to this conclusion. A demon/love story/comedy set in a single pentagram just screams sand and sandals.

The good folks over at DEAD LANTERN held their annual horror movie awards show…podcast style! My demon love story, Lo, was nominated for two awards this year:
Best Screenplay and Best NO to LOW Budget Film.
Lo was up against some pretty amazing competition in the genre. Films like Splice, Frozen and Triangle were all duking it out in the category, but in the end, our frisky demon lit up a smoke and laughed in their faces, taking home BOTH awards! You can listen to the awards show and hear me accept …

Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce that the score from my demon, comedy-love story-horror film, LO, as been nominated for best original score for a comedy film by the International Film Music Critics Association! This honor goes straight to our amazing composer, Scott Glasgow. It was an odd project to begin with, but Scott approached it with style, enthusiasm and heart. There are moments in the film that still squeeze my insides (and I’ve seen that damn film well over 100 times). Scott walked an amazing fine line …

Cover Art for the Lo Web Comic

I’ve been truly amazed at how many people have seem my indie demon-comedy-love story flick, Lo. It appears to be making the rounds into peoples homes through a number of formats, but most consistently, Netflix Instant Play. I’ve received many emails from fans telling me how much they enjoyed the movie and I can’t tell you how much that means to me. When you create from your heart and choose to do things a little different it’s a very scary thing. People’s reactions can …

I thought today I would address a topic that amuses me: Everyone’s a critic. Ever since the internet has been public, the everyday, “I-tie-my-shoes-like-you-but-don’t-get-the-big-bucks”, Joe and Sally’s of the world have had a voice. They are able to comment, reply, blog and scream about any damn topic they feel. Finally their opinion can be heard. In my world, this voice is most prominent in movie criticism. Being an independent filmmaker, I spend a lot of time on sites like IMDB, Netflix, Rotten Tomatoes, Bloody-Disgusting, Shock-Till-You-Drop…and many others. I love to …

This blog is a very big thank you to all who came out to support my weird and wild vision! We had a full house and beat out many other bigger films to take the Audience Choice Award! It was an absolute joy screening for everyone and the vibe in the theater was kinetic. I got to meet some cool new filmmakers as well as reconnect with some old friends I hadn’t seen in ages. With Hollywood fully conquered, we’re packing Lo’s bags and heading to Austin, Texas for the …

Making an independent film is a lot like having a  baby. The act of creating it is incredibly enjoyable, then you carry it around with you for a much longer period of time. With each month it develops more fully, until finally one day you squeeze it out and show it to everyone. Tonight my baby is born and I will be premiering it in the town in which I moved to in order to do exactly what I’m doing. Make movies. So it’s very exciting to screen here for …
