What Is Acting? – My Subjective Opinion

We now live in a world where the majority of acting (and music for that matter or “insert here”) has been relegated to being solely a popularity contest. A recent article came out stating that Hollywood was now casting 7% based on talent and the rest based on “how popular you are” on Instagram, Twitter, […]

Determination – The Story Of The Brooklyn Bridge

As Walt Before Mickey starts to hit theaters and as my new film, Brandini, takes shape, I see a common theme with both projects: determination. A willingness to never give up, no matter what the odds. Despite what others may tell you, despite what others may think, you can not take determination and desire for […]

Arts OR Entertainment

Friends (and, please… only those that have been DEDICATING their lives to being Actors, Singers, Musicians, Dancers, Painters, Directors, etc… for MORE THAN 15 years of their lives) I’m battling with a bit of an esoteric question(s) today. It’s something that’s been biting at me for years and years. It started the first day that […]

PASSION AND CREATIVITY RULES

If there’s one thing that this crazy entertainment business teaches you is that there are no rules. It’s not the corporate world where there is a proverbial “ladder” that you can climb. In that world, you enter with training, you pay your dues, you climb up that ladder and before you know it, you’re in […]

Walt Visits The White House

I truly don’t have many “bucket list” items in my life. Why? Because I assume that I will get to everything I want to do and accomplish in due time. Despite my 43 year old birthday looming, I don’t feel any urgency to get things “in” or done because the proverbial time is slipping away. […]

Tom Cruise Is Cool.

Okay, so, for all you lay people that are not in the business and who may never have a chance to brush elbows with a Hollywood celebrity, let alone speak to them, allow me to put one myth to rest. This past week, I had the pleasure to work with Tom Cruise (in a small […]

Walt Before Mickey Premiere A Rousing Success

Well, after 18 months of waiting, Walt Before Mickey, finally had it’s premiere festival release at The SkyWay International Film Festival on Friday June 12th. It was a rousing success. The film was extremely well received and we got so much great feedback from industry professionals and theatre goers alike. They couldn’t believe the film […]

Brandini is Finished and Walt Premiere’s in 3 Weeks!

A few milestones were reached this week. Brandini, my latest film, a collaboration with Kvibe Productions, LLC is now complete and our developmental reading went unbelievably. The actors all did a fantastic job and it gave me the opportunity to put the finishing touches upon the 2nd draft. We are now ready for the financing […]

Walt Before Mickey – Single Coverage

So, in filmmaking, it is always said that you want as much “coverage” as possible. To a lay person, what does that mean? Well, it means that you’d like as many angles of the scene you are shooting as you can. Wide Shots, Medium Shots, Close Ups, Two Shots, Single Shots, Establishing shots, Medium Close, […]

Brandini and Tom Cruise

This was a busy last week. Last Tuesday I auditioned for the latest Tom Cruise movie called MENA. It was a small part… a very small part. BUT, last Friday I was informed that I booked the part. Hey, it’s a Tom Cruise movie, right? Directed by Doug Liman, the man behind Swingers, Bourne Identity […]
