So, here we are at the end of the year, and sometimes it's good to look back and feel proud of what we've done. That is what I'm doing here. Just a reminder to myself that I'm still going.
Started off the year with shooting the dark thriller, "Down by the Water". It was a tough shoot, in a brutal Central New York Winter. (Seriously, I drove through a snow storm with -35 windchill)
But it was all worth it, seeing the finished product premier at The Redhouse Arts Center in Syracuse.
Through all of this I was working steadily on the weekly comic book web series "Meanwhile..." with Watchworks Studios. I hosted the show, wrote and produced with them. And yes, I did say weekly. It was an awful lot of work, but totally worth it. We wrapped Season 1 in May right before the premiere of the new Avengers movie. You can watch the complete season 1, right below.
Next I was in the CNYPlayhouse production of "Glengarry Glen Ross". It was a huge critical success, even having NY Theater Guide list it as their #1 pick for live theater the second weekend that it ran.
Also, I was nominated and won a Syracuse Area Live Theater award for Best Supporting Actor.
Next, it was on to the first of three movies that I shot over the summer. Planewalker. In which I played Messenger, a mental patient with a secret. I got to be seriously batshit crazy and that is always fun. Plus, it was a great comedic role, that I am looking forward to seeing on the big screen next summer.
Next it was off to Jersey to shoot a scene for the Cyberpunk Action movie "Ghost Source Zero". It was also a chance for me to work with director Mark Cheng and reunite with Joe Barbagallo, who I worked with on the prequel "Deployment Strategy"
It was an awesome time and really cool to see this project grow. I remember reading a draft of it many years ago, so it was amazing to be on the set.
And to close out the year, the dark indie drama, "27 Matches". Another tough but rewarding shoot, with some amazing footage coming out of this one.
Keep an eye out on the festival circuit next year, this one is looking good.
In fact there is a teaser trailer already, so you can judge for your self.
Check it out.
And of course there's Killgrave. It just passed 17K views. You can watch it here.
Well, that's it for this year. Look forward to working with more of you in the year to come. And thanks so much to everyone I worked with this year.
