Big news coming!!!

Okay guys, so... this is it.  The promised 2nd post this month (it might be a very short one, because not a whole lot has happened).  This month is almost over, and I start best boying a Sony Web series this week.  Then I go straight to a movie in New Orleans for a few weeks, so I am about to get very busy.  I figured it might be a good idea to go ahead and pound out this blog now...

So, between my last blog post and this blog post, some pretty cool stuff happened...

1- I was asked to guest direct an episode of a Web-series...  I can't tell you too much about it as of now, but It's about a guy who moves to LA to make action movies, and the episode I was asked to direct is all the action movie within the webseries stuff... It was cool.  There was one face that some of you who are big 80s action fans might recognize, but thats all I can really say for now. The producers are not in a big hurry to announce its release or any more information so, it might be a while before you hear about it again, but, but, but, I will tell you more about it as soon as I can!!!
2- Just before I started typing this I got to see the rough cut of The Rocketz music video... Holy cow!!!  This video will be done soon.  We are about to start the huge amount of digital effects, but holy cow, this video, song and band are really cool. This video is seriously going to be amazing... All you werewolf fans, horror fans, The Rocketz fans, or just plain Wesley Alley fans, get ready, because this video is really going to be so so cool!!!  If you haven't been clicking the links in any of my other posts, or if this is the first post you've read, WHAT??? WHY HAVENT YOU READ MORE?? Just kidding. If you're new or haven't checked out the link, check out The Rocketz here---

They are actually on tour now, and have a new album coming out... SO... check them out, because here soon, we are going to release the music video I just directed for them and its going to blow you away!!!!

3- Other than that, I've just been working on lots of stuff.  In a week or so we are going to have a huge ReRe-Animated update, with some pretty cool information.  Get excited for it... You can check out more on ReRe-Animated, an award winning short film I directed at the links to the side or just click these links

So get excited about the big big big news coming down the line for that!!! Tune in a few weeks from now. Same blog place, same blog channel...

Director back in action!!! Im sorry that you missed me!!!

Im Sorry!! Im Sorry!! Im Sorry!! Im Sorry!! 
So I've had several friends and fans hit me up lately about my next blog post. I know that I said I would be writing one blog post a month at least and it has been well over a month since my last post. I'm sorry. Ill do better from now on and this month ill even write 2 to try and make up for lost time.
Im sorry!!!!
As some of you know the last few months have been nuts for me. I directed and produced a super super awesome music video for the band "The Rocketz". It was awesome, and as we move through editing it keeps getting better and better! Werewolves, rockabilly, punk, it's got it all, you guys are gonna love it. But I kinda hit a string of super bad luck haha. It was rough, not only did it set me back financially, and with my goals, but it also kinda put me in a funk. I just couldn't get myself out of it, and I kinda had a bad attitude, and because of all the things that had been happening to me, I had to take extra work to pay for it, so things like editing the music video, and a few other projects, got pushed back. I worked several different TV shows, a non union movie, a few commercials, pick up days for a movie that was shot in NY. Just tons of work like 30 plus days straight so that was also a reason why I didn't write, I had no time. I am very fortunate to get all that work, and thinking back about the last month and a half has inspired me and helped me get out of my funk. (I am actually even writing this on the set of CSI right now...)

I have so many great friends and connections in the industry, and when I was down I was able to through all of them get the work I needed. And I got to work on some amazing shows with some amazing people. All the tv shows with all my 728 brothers and sisters were amazing, and even the small movie that are sometimes nightmares was great. I met cool people. Became friends with some awesome fairly known actors that wanna help me out with some projects. I met a group of interns that were in LA doing internships from their school in NY and they were so young and fresh and excited about everything. They told me many times how I was inspiring to them, but just their passion and love and excitement for the film industry was super super inspiring to me. They were awesome and I honestly hope to keep working with all these kids. Met more cool people and did more cool stuff and looking back on stuff that even when times are tough, my life rocks, and I am so so happy to have the love and support from all my friends, family, and fans. You guys make everything awesome!

I also have great news. So my short film ReRe-Anated secured distribution and can be viewed on the website Indy Flix.
It requires a membership but if you sign up for one, you can get a trial membership and watch my short and tons more. Pretty cool stuff. (Small disclaimer- rated R for language, violence, and content. Not for children. If your offended by any of those things, please don't watch it and then give me a hard time about it) Also what I'm told is you can sign up for a trial membership and then after watching my short film you can cancel if you don't think it's a good deal and don't want to continue... Also more good news. Soon very soon ill be announcing another way to watch ReRe-Animated... Might have something to do with DVDs and with TV show times... Maybe :) get excited and ill give you details soon. Also will be starting a few more projects I'm super super excited about, and releasing the super scary and rocking werewolf video for the rockets!!!!! Lots of cool stuff being announced shortly
In the mean time!!!!
