I’m about to complete my first week of midnight shifts and it’s an adjustment. I’m doing alright so far, I haven’t slept much but then again I never do. I got really lucky landing this job with a very stable company, I’ll be back on my feet in no time financially and that is something I can not wait for…that’s why I’m still delivering pizza a few nights a week…whatever it takes.
I would like to congratulate Mike Roberts and John Heist. They won the Cape May Film Festival Short Screenplay Competition. So they are not only incredibly talented actors but writers as well. Grindhouse Pictures is very happy and fortunate to be affiliated with these two talented guys and look forward to all of our upcoming projects.
I am very excited about the latest short I have written and have begun pre-production on. It’s creepy, scary, and disturbing and all this in just under 7 minutes. I definitely have to raise my game to stay on a level with John and Mike. Anyhow, I can’t wait to get back behind the camera. Editing Sorrow Hill has really gotten my creative juices flowing once again, I’m writing a lot more and I’ve learned a lot from editing on what to do better next time as a director. The short tentatively titled Movie Night stars my daughter Emily and Sarah Albertson. We will be casting for other parts soon so keep checking back for casting calls.
I like the effect the announcement of short screenplay competition and film festival has had on my readers and radio listeners as well as friends. Matt DiBiase is currently writing his first screenplay. Big Rick and his friend Eric are working on one as well and Ryan Burnett and I are collaborating on a Zombie short that is going to be a lot of fun, we will be co-directing as well. John and Mike will be writing and directing a short as well for the festival…I can’t wait to see what those guys come up with next.
That’s about all from now. Keep checking back for updates on all the upcoming Grindhouse Pictures projects.
