The last few months can be summarized as trial and error, discovery and reinvention, looking in and pushing on: a lot has happened.
Consider this an introduction. I’m going to devote a three-part series of blog posts to these developing artistic avenues: director, editor, and writer. Stepping back to take in the big picture, here’s some of what’s happened in the 5 months since my last blog post:
[spoiler title=”Post Production on The Verge” icon=”arrow” style=”fancy” open=”yes”] Having finished directing The Verge in October, the last few months have been a marathon of post-production: working with a composer, editor, co-producer, publicity outlets, social media, and festivals.

[spoiler title=”A Successful Kickstarter Campaign” icon=”arrow” style=”fancy” open=”yes”] As an editor and web-designer, I’ve worked extensively on the publicity and (successful!) Kickstarter campaign for EgoManiac: A Poetic Incantation. An original play by Paul Moore, it debuts at the Hollywood Fringe Festival next Friday, June 6th and you can purchase tickets online via The Fringe website. [/spoiler]
[spoiler title=”Screenwriting Contest Winner” icon=”arrow” style=”fancy” open=”yes”]On December 16th (the day after my last entry), my screenplay one-sheet concept was selected as a Write-Start Contest Winner! I was 1 of 8 screenwriters awarded a full scholarship for an 8-week screenwriting workshop at the New York Film Academy’s Burbank campus.[/spoiler]
[spoiler title=”Color Correction and Editing” icon=”arrow” style=”fancy” open=”yes”]After completing Season 1 of The Verge, I’ve started seeking out new projects to edit and color through my production company, Little Kraken Films. I’ve created a 1-minute reel to show some of what I can do.[/spoiler]
