Took a quick hour drive this weekend to play in some snow - in what was technically still Los Angeles! 

One of the many reasons I love this state.

The lovely Kira Hesser and I had a few spare hours last Thursday and no sound equipment, so we came up with this idea and shot it on the spot! Ch-ch-check it out!

Our RoboCop Remake - Full Movie

Alright! We’ve released our manic multi-filmmaker RoboCop remake it it’s entirety online and for free. So here it is. Based on the original 1987 RoboCop, filmmakers remade their individual scenes however they wanted. 108-minutes. 60 little scenes. A great group of filmmakers put some amazing work into this thing, so hope you load it on your Apple TV or XBox or computer, kick back with some kettle corn, and enjoy it. 

Dave Seger’s a genius for putting this together and im so happy I got to be apart of it!

So good! 


Morals & Ethics

How did i miss this? This is great. 

Here’s my finale episode of 6 degrees!

It’s kinda hard to believe I started writing this show almost a year ago.  It was my first attempt at a 101 show and I would have never guessed it would go this far.  And I really can’t thank everyone enough for all their acting, shooting, writing advice all along the way.  This was a huge learning experience for me and I couldn’t have done it with out all you cool cats.

So thanks everyone! 101 is the best, you guys. Just the best. 


So OUR ROBOCOP REMAKE exists now. It’s a real thing that’s all in one place and sitting on the computer at The Downtown Independent.

Running time 1 hr 46 minutes, but there’s like 5-minutes plus of ending credits, so it’s more like 1 hr 40 minutes.  I’m feeling pretty optimistic about it - it’s total madness and you probably won’t fully appreciate it if you haven’t watched the original RoboCop recently - but it’s a fun dumb thing and I absolutely love it. 

Pretty ladies, pretty makeup, pretty photos.

6º Episode 5 - *Halloween Special*

Oh man, I had been secretly wanting to make a Halloween episode forever, and I’m so happy it all came together!  Thank you to all the super cool people that helped me on this one. Especially Nikki for her amazing sfx makeup and Shane for helping me shoot and light, and making it look way better than I ever could have, and to everyone who helped act, or got in a trash can, or let me put weird makeup on you and pull you across a floor.  You’re all the best!!  

The October screening was my favorite, so make sure to check out all the spooky and really great Channel101 shows!
