This week, the web series, AD OUT, I directed for Love Love Productions premiered on YouTube. It was an awesome and amazing experience – and nice to do something that wasn’t horror. Although I love horror, I am glad I had the opportunity to show my audience that I can tell a story outside of my normal genre!
Enjoy the first episode (1 of 4) on YouTube…and then subsequently the next three! And again, thank you for your continued support. And thank you to Troy Akin for the amazing opportunity.
Thank you to Ryan T Cusick for the amazing interview for iHorror, taken during my recent trip to Texas Frightmare Weekend 2019 in Dallas, Texas. I attended Texas Frightmare Weekend last year in 2018 for the first time with my cousin Daryl (Mr. Meathook on Youtube) and the most amazing weekend.
This year was no exception. I just meet the most amazing people at this convention – and this year it was an honor to sit down with Ryan at iHorror and talk about my projects.
Thank you to Ryan T. Cusick for the amazing review of my film LOVE ME NOT. Even though you watched it three months later – that is the true beauty about the medium of film – is never too late to enjoy a good story.
On behalf of the cast and crew, we thank you for enjoying our film and writing about it!
So not only was I able to direct the third season of Horror Talk with Kristin West…but I was able to be a guest on the show as well! Thank you to Horror News Network, a sponsor of the show, for posting my episode as well.
The third season was recorded at the FANtastic Horror Film Festival in San Diego, CA, which by the way is a lovely festival – and which I had won second place at for my short film script The Beauty of Death.
I am grateful to have been a part of this seasons line up and am thankful to Kristin West and my manager, Matt Chassin, for the opportunity.
So week 1 of shooting the web series was a success. Now we just wrapped week 2 and the footage is looking so amazing. This week was more focused on the dramatic elements of the show – but don’t worry, there was still some good tennis stuff – plus a fun party scene out by the pool! This week we had some new actors on set – so our team is definitely growing!
The first week of AD Out went amazingly well. So grateful to have been a part of this fun project. AD Out is a tennis drama written and created by Troy Akin and directed by me.
I was nervous about this project. I mostly write and direct horror and this was a good opportunity to show that I was capable of directing a completely different genre….plus even though Troy will be launching this on his YouTube Channel, his goal is to pitch it as a TV series, so naturally this has to be the best product!
But everyone brought their A game and everything looks amazing. I really do think we will have something truly amazing and fun! Plus this is the first project I have directed so far that has a sponsor: Head Tennis Gear!
We film again this weekend. Stay tuned for more information on this project!
I want to think Michael Haberfelner for taking the time to interview for his blog (re)Search My Trash for the film I directed LOVE ME NOT for Horror House. The questions were great! It was nice to be able to explain my process with you.
I am so excited to announce that my podcast, Mimosas With Michael is now available on iHeartRadio, which is one of the largest distributors for podcasts. I am so grateful for all the support everyone – including our guests – have show this little podcast.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Make sure to go and listen to the latest episode OR catch up one you may not have heard yet!
