Been a busy week, sorry I haven’t been able to keep up with everyone. We now have a number of projects working at the same time and I haven’t been able to really break away and say much but…. Now I can!
First off “Palermo” has a rough cut completed! Editing is always a process but it’s ongoing. Second and third, shot two episodes this week of General Hospital and the Young and the Restless. Fantastic time on both sets, can’t say enough about the courtesy of the cast and crew. Would love to be back for more but we’ll see.
Still working on our features for the foreign shoots, everyday is bringing new and exciting opportunities, so we’ll just keep banging away at them!
Excited to be moving into the casting phase for our next project this week. Casting is always a fun time because you think you know what you’re looking for going into it, and then every now and then, you get totally surprised.
On top of that, I’m starting a studio re-write for some of my crew in Europe. Hope I can find that Hungarian to English dictionary!
The big question after finishing an independent film is always, what’s next. In the case of “Busy Day” it looks like it’s going to be the film festival circuit.
“Busy Day” will make its festival premiere at the Main International Film Festival, playing the following dates and locations:
Friday, July 15 at 9:30 p.m. at the Waterville Opera House
Saturday, July 16 at 12:30 p.m. at Railroad Square Cinema

Recently on a production development trip to Boston, I had the great privilege and honor to meet one of my all-time boxing heroes Micky Ward. Micky took time out of his extremely busy schedule to talk over a few projects and share some stories down at his gym in Lowell. For those of you not in the fight game, Micky was portrayed by Mark Wahlberg in the movie “The Fighter”.
And of course, as I would recommend to EVERYONE, we stopped by Wahlburgers down at Fenway for a great burger!
Just wanted to thank everyone for stopping by the new site and checking out the new digs. I’m venturing into some new fields this year and returning to some old ones. Lots of exciting things are on the horizon for me and my crew, so we hope you stick around and enjoy the ride.
I’ll be doing my best to keep this site updated with the latest news and content, and while I can’t get to all the messages I receive, I’ll do my best.
For now, take some time and look around. The ride is about to begin!
