Around this time in 2012, we were shooting my first feature film, The Backseat. I’m excited to say that the film is now available to stream for FREE on Amazon Prime! Please watch and share with your friends.
Making this little movie introduced me to more incredible people than I thought I’d ever have the pleasure of knowing. Much love to the cast, crew, Kickstarter backers, and anyone who supported us at a film festival.
My feature film debut The Backseat has finally been released! Below are links to places where you can view the film in its entirety. It’ll be coming to even more platforms in the near future.
I am so incredibly excited to finally be able to share the film with everyone. Please tell all of your friends!
Recently, I returned to the Battleship Pretension podcast. You can listen to it in iTunes or at the link below. Thanks to Tyler and David for such a fun conversation.
I recently had the pleasure of participating in a crowd sourced scene by scene remake of Ghostbusters. For my scene, I had Emmy-winner and two-time Tony-nominee, André De Shields, play 8 different roles. It’s one of the strangest things I’ve ever made, and I had a blast putting it together with my amazing crew. Give it a watch and share with your friends!
I am incredibly pleased and thrilled to announce that Osiris Entertainment has acquired the North American rights to The Backseat. You can expect a DVD and digital release this September.
Don’t miss out on what may very well be the last screening of our festival run!
Some new interviews from The Backseat‘s festival run are now online. The first is from the Laughlin International Film Festival in October. The second is from The International Indie Gathering. Check them out!
In a year where a lot of cool things have happened, this was definitely one of the highlights.
Being on a podcast I’ve been listening to regularly for nearly seven years is an incredible honor. I was only a freshmen in college when I started listening. I hadn’t yet had the confidence to try to make weird personal films, and the few podcasts I listened to served as little more than just entertainment.
Podcasts like Battleship Pretension showed me that it’s okay to be into things that go against the grain, mainstream and otherwise. There’s no reason to not stand behind your opinions, and there’s certainly no reason to be afraid to express your own point of view.
So thank you to Tyler and David for having me on the show. But mostly, thank you for keeping the podcast running for nearly 400 episodes.
You can hear the episode at the link below or download it via iTunes.
The Backseat recently took home the prize for Best Comedy at the Laughlin International Film Festival. Thanks to Erik and everyone at the festival for showing us such a great time!
Thank you to Brian and the jurors at the 2014 SoCal Independent Film Festival for this honor! I was also nominated for Best Director and Chris Bellant was nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of Roy. So cool!!!
