Concluded a second year as Visiting Professor in the Film department of Ringling College of Art+Design. Needless to say, this was not a typical year in academia. Mid-semester, everybody picked up and went home on the (wise) prompting of the College, to escape the rapid spread of the coronavirus. Undergraduates completed their courses on Zoom.Continue reading “Academic Pandemic”
Missing Halloween or Día de Muertos already? (Of course you are.) Well, you can get back into the Halloween spirit by listening to the Halloween episode of the Bite the Pen podcast, where my 2-WAY co-producer Claudio Ruben and I opine about 2-WAY’s Indiegogo campaign and also have some fun discussing Tim Burton’s classic Beetlejuice.
These are the final days of 2-WAY’s Indiegogo campaign, and if you haven’t taken a look to see if you can support the endeavour, I humbly ask you to give us consideration. We have Longmire star Bailey Chase attached as the lead; 5-time Emmy winner Dyanna Taylor attached as director; and if all goes well, we think we can be competitive in some top-tier film festivals. But we’re 100% independently financed, and your support makes a significant difference in moving to production.
My feature film 2-WAY‘s in the midst of its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, and if you haven’t had a chance to check it out already, there’s never been a better time. 2-WAY is 100% independently financed, and while the Indiegogo is just one of our revenue streams, it’s a crucial one. We need your support to make this film happen.
Wanna know more about the script I’ve written and am now producing? Head to our Indiegogo campaign. We’ve got lots of fun and unique perks attached to contribution levels. All contributions — no matter the amount — are tremendously appreciated. Contributions will open the door to a day on the set, the chance to be a background extra, breakfast with the producers, your name in the credits, a romantic weekend in Santa Fe or Mesilla, and much more.
The campaign’s end is very soon. Support thoughtful, quality independent filmmaking.

I’ll be on KSFR‘s weekly program “Cinema Scope” this Friday at 4:30pm MDT, with my 2-WAY co-producer Claudio Ruben and host Stu Goswick. You can pick up the broadcast signal at 101.1FM — or live-stream the broadcast here. (They’re also on TuneIn.) Learn more about 2-WAY and our Indiegogo campaign, which is now in progress. (And know that your signing on to the campaign is tremendously appreciated.)
On Monday, June 24, my co-producer Claudio Ruben and I announced the pre-launch of 2-WAY‘s Indiegogo campaign on KTRC‘s The Richard Eeds Show. You can listen to the segment here, with a surprise call-in from Santa Fean and congressional candidate Valerie Plame. And you can directly visit our Indiegogo here — which I hope you will.
People often ask me: “Why don’t they make movies they way they used to?” Well, the answer is complicated and multi-faceted — but if you’re looking for a film about the human heart, one that eschews guns, violence, spaceships and superheroes … then 2-WAY is your film. Now we really need your support.
Having toured Las Cruces radio stations last week, I’m hitting the Santa Fe airwaves this week with my co-producer Claudio Ruben to discuss my feature film 2-WAY, and to fully unveil the pre-launch of our Indiegogo campaign (one of several revenue streams that will underwrite the 100% independent financing of this film).
