Acting with Cats

Last week I shot another student film, "Lynx Jinxed" playing opposite a real lynx. Now lynxes apparently have never been to film school. The director asks them to move camera right, the lynx will go straight after the cameraman. Ask it to sit and look at the woodcutter (me) and it rolls over for a belly rub.

"Fathers" to appear at Bangor Film Festival

I worked on a grad thesis film for a student (Bridget Lake) from Loyola U in California a couple of years ago. "Fathers" will be shown in the upcoming Bangor Film Festival on Friday August 15. We had a great cast including NE actors, Michele Romano, Bill Mootos, Bill Steele and NY actress Diane Gioseffi, as well as a wonderfully talented crew from all over. If anyone is attending the festival, I'm going to try to get up there myself. Please look me up.…
