December 22nd, 2010

It has been a crazy few months. Lets recap:

-Finished my Comedy Central pilot-
Mash Up (I posted the intro). I’ve been working on this for a long time and it’s based on the Blerds shorts I was making way back when in Chicago so it’s really cool to see this come full circle. Our pilot is going to air as an hour special sometime soon. (More good news on this coming soon…)

-Sundance 2011 bumpers-
Sundance asked me to direct the bumpers that play before the films at the festival this year. Lots of pressure to make sure people don’t get sick of watching these after the 20th time. I’ll post these soon. They’re super effects heavy, and I think they’re pretty great.

-HBO Funny or Die-
I directed 8 segments for season 2 of the HBO funny or die show. It premieres in January. I’m excited to watch them.

-Successful Alcoholics-
This is nearing up its festival run and it has played in over 30 festivals and won multiple awards. It’s crazy to think it has been almost 3 years since I shot it.

Did a web series for Ford that was a lot of fun and got to cast a bunch of amazing people in it. Not sure if it will be released because Sony might cut it into a pilot and shop it around instead.

Hrrrrm…. What else? Just chilling with my 16 year old dog.
