On the big screen

August 8, 2011

This year, I entered “Oh, What a Laugh” into the Land of Lincoln Credit Union 21 Film Project. I didn’t win anything this year, but I did make it to the top 20, so I still got to see my film played on a big screen.

The award ceremony was at the Avon Theater during the Decatur Celebration, the 3-day festival that keeps me very busy shooting for the Herald & Review. Lucky for me, I was able to attend for the first time and film it for the paper.

It was a pretty fantastic event. There was a red carpet walk, a huge crowd, and lots of fun characters. It got off to a late start, and I had to film more events for work, so I wasn’t able to stay for the whole show. I stayed for about six films, and had to leave before mine played. I made it back on Sunday to see mine, and a bunch of other films. There are a lot of really talented people here in Decatur and the surrounding areas, and it was great to finally make it to the event.

Oh, I almost forgot: 80s singer, Tiffany, opened up the ceremony with a song. Pretty wild. Here’s the video that I did for the H&R, complete with my goofy walk down the red carpet with Doug Bishop.

Oh, What a Laugh

It’s finally finished!

In December I filmed this short Christmas comedy. It was too late to have it ready by Christmas, but releasing it the week before Easter actually makes sense once you watch it.

I’ve got a few more projects in pre-production mode, so hopefully this is the first of many short comedies to be gracing my site.

Now here comes the fair warning for family, friends, and clients: this is a fictitious piece of work, and it contains naughty language and situations. Especially if you stay past the credits…

I’ll leave it at that and trust that if you hit play, you are cool with some good ol’ sophomoric humor. Enjoy!

UPDATE: I don’t know how I missed this, but I completely left out a “Thank You” to Madison’s parents, Steve and Angel Gentry! They took time out to have Madison rehearse the music, and then bring her out to a few different shoots. I don’t know how I overlooked that, but I’ll say it here: Thank you!
