It’s been  awhile since I made a new short film, and it made me realize how much I bloody miss it! Poison Pussy Cat is a fake film noir movie trailer that was made for the DrexelDance Film Festival (a yearly movie themed party we throw). The movie took home Best Fucking Picture and it was my first writer/director collaboration with Shannon Hourigan. We could not be happier with the results. Tell your day to go fuck itself for three and a half minutes and get lost inside the hard boiled world of Poison Pussy Cat!

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.

Last Minute Love

Now you can own one of my very own paper nightmares! Every day the strangest scenes pass through my head. I decided that instead of letting them float off into obscurity, I would capture them forever in paper form, sign and date them, slap them in a frame and sell them to little ol’ you. Not only am I creating my own worlds, but I will also customize one for you! Got a scene in your head? A photograph you want replicated? Let’s talk. I can do that.
Check out the …
