As you may know, this year my friends and I had the honor of making a Fly Film for the the Seattle International Film Festival. Our film was completed in April, screened twice during the festival then once at Rawstock. In case you missed those, it’ll play again at Bumbershoot Sunday the 6th of September […]

I met Josh Lowman when GMGS screened at the SF Indie Fest. Funny and somehow memorable, the film stayed with Josh and when we was looking for more comedic shorts to round out his self-produced mini-festival, “Shorts and Rock” he thought of me. If you’re in San Fran around June 19th at the Rickshaw Stop, […]
