HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

9th May

I had hoped that today we would be able to release the first ever trailer of MOTHER’S DAY, but alas, sometimes the world doesn’t move as fast as we want it…  My hope is we will have announcements within the next couple of weeks!!! For now, I hope you enjoy a couple of new stills!!!

WHAT THEY DON’T TEACH YOU IN FILM SCHOOL – part 1 / 4

At least once a day I receive a message from a fan asking if I have any advice on how to make it in the film business…

Part of me wants to respond like Rob Zombie did in one of his interviews.  During said interview they asked Rob Zombie if he had advice for independent filmmakers.  Rob basically said, “QUIT NOW, if you are asking me for advice, you probably can’t hack it…”   Rob Zombies advice for filmmakers

I kid… I kid… but not really…


Why I still do it… (updated)

3rd April

This week my Twitter and Facebook were filled with posts about REPO! The Genetic Opera.  Something, by now, I am sure the majority of my followers are sick of hearing about.

I have tons of fans following me on both sites.  However, the majority of the people following me are not REPO! fans, but fans of the SAW franchise, or fans of the fact that they are ‘following’ a director.  The other percentage of people are industry friends, various horror sites, reporters, etc…



FINAL STAGES OF MOTHERS DAY

22nd March

So excited, today we begin the final stage of MOTHER’S DAY! The DI and Sound Mix.

This week, myself, the DP Joe White, and editor Hunter Via will sit in complete darkness and color correct the movie.

It’s already making such a HUGE difference to the overall mood of the film.

Basically, in DI which stands for Digital Intermediate – which gives us the ability to create looks that were just not possible when shooting the movie.  We have more control over color, contrast, saturation, etc…


REPO MEN opens this weekend

16th March

So – I have had about 10,000 facebook requests asking me if I plan on seeing REPO MEN this weekend.

The answer is simple… YES

This last year has been full of up’s and down’s- tons of drama surrounding trailer similarities, poster similarities, etc…

At times I let ‘drama’ get the best of me…
