A Lazy Man’s One Minute Comedy

I was feeling lazy, so I didn’t shoot any video for this short comedy. Sure, there’s some dialogue, but … well, see for yourself. And yes, there are moving pictures!

By the way, was the Jonny Depp reference too obvious?

Logline: An unusual holiday runs into a not so unusual challenge.

I Just Won my first Film Award

Reel Escape People's Choice AwardI had a blast writing and acting in this short comedy! It’s a bit naughty (blame the writer) but won’t corrupt youngsters if they do catch a glimpse.

It was a joint winner of the People’s Choice award at the recent 2016 Reel Escape Short Film Festival in Ulladulla NSW.

It was produced by the Milton Ulladulla Videography Club, which has welcomed me into its ranks recently. If you’d like to join us, please visit:

We were lucky enough to have some wonderful actresses from the Milton Follies helping us out. My thanks to you all!

Logline: When a work weary couple unwind at the wrong house for their holiday break, their tranquillity is interrupted by a most unexpected group.

A Lead Role in a Short Film

I’ve recently played a middle aged gent whose wife is trying to spice up their love life. It was shot in Byron Bay, and I really enjoyed it! Don’t worry, it’s G rated.

Judgement Date didn’t get funded in Kickstarter

What a shame. I was really looking forward to making the trailer, and then using that to attract interest to make the full feature film.

I suspect that my tribe just wasn’t big enough for the job. Even though I read widely on best practices for crowd funding, there’s obviously more to know and/or do.

Never mind, there’s more than one way to make a feature film …

My Kickstarter Campaign just went Live

After lots of work, it’s finally gone live. Please click on the image below for details:

There’s a comprehensive plan of action there, so it’s a bit like an online business plan.

Please share it with your social network, and if you can, Donate a Dollar to Make a Movie.

Sure, it’s a cliche, but every dollar really DOES count. e.g. projects with more backers get more exposure, leading to more backers, leading to … 🙂

Casting Couch in Post Production

My short script Casting Couch has recently been filmed, and is now in post. It’s not going to set the world on fire, but it’s an amusing little riff on a common cliché within Hollywood.

I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished product!

A Tale of three Trailers

After getting some interesting feedback for the trailer I wrote for Judgement Date, I’ve now written three, each in a different style:

Witness Trailer

Mystery Trailer

Clarity Trailer

They’re all 3 pages long, and will take under 5 minutes each to read.

Which one/s appeal to you, and why? Do let me know!

The Script of the Trailer … of the Film … of the Screenplay

I’ve just written a 3 page trailer script for my feature film screenplay Talent Show Takedown. People are busy these days, and don’t want to read 2 hour screenplays by writers they’ve never (yet) heard of. So how to interest them?

People like video. It’s easy, you just sit back and watch.

By filming this trailer, I’m hoping to drum up interest. If some bite, I might be able to get them to attach to the project. That all improves the chances of getting this produced.

If not, it’s been a good exercise by itself, and I’m sure I’ll both learn from it and enjoy it!

The trailer script is here if you’d like to spend 5 minutes reading it:

Clarity Trailer

Please do let me know what you think. Any and all feedback is most welcome, including 7 figure bidding wars …

Hey, I can dream!
