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).
If you missed the live broadcasts of either of my appearances this week on Las Cruces area radio, fear not!
Listen to a very in-depth interview with 2-WAY co-producer Claudio Ruben and myself conducted by “Speak Up Las Cruces” host Peter Goodman. Originally broadcast June 20, 2019 on Radio Que Tal, KTAL 101.5FM.
And if that’s not enough, listen to a terrific interview with both of us conducted by “PUENTES a la comunidad” host Emily Guerra. Originally broadcast June 22, 2019 on KRWG 90.7 FM.
This week’s radio waves tour includes stops at Radio Que Tal, as we spend time with host Peter Goodman on his show “Speak Up, Las Cruces”. Airtime is 9am MDT Wednesday (6/20) on 101.5FM — but you can stream it live here. The segment was pre-recorded, and we’re told we’re coming in at around 45 minutes. It was quite a free-ranging discussion, but it’ll be the first unveiling of our next steps with the film (so kinda exciting!). I hope you can live-stream the show.
Our next stop is on KRWG-FM, Las Cruces’s NPR station (which provides NPR content across southern New Mexico and into El Paso), headquarted on New Mexico State University‘s campus. We’ll be the primary spotlight on the show “PUENTES a la comunidad” (aka Fronteras), hosted by Emily Guerra. Broadcast time is 5pm MDT Saturday, on 90.7FM — but this can also be live streamed on the station’s home page! We’ll again preview our next steps with the film — so you have two opportunities to get a sneak peek at our big announcement scheduled June 24.
The academic year is coming to a close and that means I’m wrapping up my visiting professorship at Ringling College Art+Design’s Film department. I’m honored to have participated in the mentoring of a number of senior thesis films, along with senior thesis screenplays and one documentary. Additionally, I moderated a Ringling College Studio Labs panel featuring actor/director Dylan McDermott and legendary stunt coordinator Andy Armstrong, and racked up up a lot of frequent flyer miles ping-ponging between Florida and New Mexico.
As the adjacent photo shows, there were moments of levity during the academic year, and perhaps as a consequence, the College has been kind enough to invite me back as Visiting Faculty next year. Since I know my way around Tampa International Airport pretty well by now, I’ve accepted. You can’t have too many frequent flyer miles.
Meanwhile, my feature film 2-WAY moves forward, and in case you haven’t already liked 2-WAY’s Facebook page … your ‘like’ would really be appreciated, as it helps us with potential investors and marketing opportunities. My co-producer and I have moved forward on fundraising, attachments, and distribution, and if all goes well, we’re hoping to shoot in the Fall. Another feature screenplay I’ve written is in “active development”, and I’ll be working on another feature over the summer.
Stay tuned…it should be an interesting rest-of-the-year…
Excited to be moderating a Ringling College Studio Labs discussion panel featuring actor/director Dylan (“The Practice“) McDermott and legendary stunt coordinator/A.D./producer Andy (“The Amazing Spider-man 2”) Armstrong, in my role as visiting faculty in Ringling College of Art+Design’s Film department, this Friday, March 22, 2pm, at the Studio Labs.
We’ll be discussing Dylan and Andy’s collaboration last summer that enlisted Ringling Film students in key crew positions. For better or worse, it’s an invitation-only event —– but if you grab an invitation, please come!
And in the meantime, if you’re reading this and still haven’t liked my feature film (in pre-preproduction) 2-WAY on Facebook, well … what are you waiting for? (And the film’s on Instagram as well — go follow!)
