Matt Evans’s character Gary Vosot wrote a manual for TV newscasters, and we set up a book signing in Bronxville, NY, to put Gary in the round and flesh out his character.
Willy Appelman spent a great deal of 2013 in San Francisco becoming a better man, but when he returned to New York, I made sure you ground him down to size. He co-wrote this with David Bernstein, and we co-directed it in his kitchen.
Working with Kevin Maher again, we took our rig to New York Comic Con and made our biggest hit yet, a viral video smash that was re-syndicated by Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick. Kevin wrote and directed it, and I shot and edited it.
Kevin Maher and Elliott Kalan (Daily Show) wrote a fantastic script that we staged on board a period-appropriate ship, detailing a lost conversation from “King Kong.” This was featured at the Gangrene Film Festival in Utah, as well as Iron Mule in New York.
To date, this Jon Bander co-production is the biggest hit I’ve ever had — we hit while the topic was hot, and we got onto Reddit thanks to a fluke and some decent tagging. It’s amazing how quickly it came together, and how big it blew up.
After I studied digital filmmaking at the New York Film Academy, I wrote, directed, and cut “Say Hello For Me,” clearly inspired by Larry David and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” ACE regulars Jennifer Sanders and Noel Dinneen play a couple grappling with the tragedy of the trivial, and Eric Stromsvold appears in a small but crucial role as the dramatic prime mover.
