Draft Opener for 'CLOSE, PERSONAL FRIEND'

Here's the 1st 5 minutes of 'Close, Personal Friend', our new feature-length film (currently in post-production).

"Close, Personal Friend is the story of a post-grad named FRANK living his life weekend to weekend at his friends' loosely-themed parties. When a strange visitor starts making preposterous declarations and becomes the center of attention, Frank is forced to question his priorities, his allegiances, and his opinion of time-travelling Astro-pirates."

I'd like to say that I normally I wouldn't post a non-color-corrected, unmastered clip...but, after reviewing this blog, I'm afraid that I cannot make such a hyperbolic statement in good conscience...

The truth is I'm just so happy with the performances that I had to share. I'll post more as I edit more.

'Close, Personal Friend' Slideshow #1

Here we go...

Here's a short video slideshow of the production (so far) of the feature film 'Close, Personal Friend'. Months of planning, 8-10 days of shooting. We're due to wrap in mid-August, and everyone has done an amazing job. More on the production later.




NOTE: It's in WINDOWS MEDIA FORMAT. (If you haven't heard of WINDOWS, it's a little mom & pop out of California. Those kids do all right...don't let anyone tell you different).

BYSTANDER - 15-minute preview

OK...no more foolin' around....

Here's the first 15 minutes (or so) of the 2009 Burning Snowman feature 'BYSTANDER'.

BYSTANDER
2009

Barney and Harv, two co-workers who've never spoken, embark on a strange midnight journey through a sleepy New England town on the trail of a man one of them may or may not have killed. Along the way they encounter an assortment of strange, late-night wayfarers that shed new light on the state of reality...and if they're all really alive.
