The Telling Room

The always fantastic David of Budget Fabulous Films just dropped a promotional video for The Telling Room, a non-profit writing center in Portland Maine that helps create great storytellers (and was just awarded a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award by Michelle Obama herself.) I know what you’re saying “oh yeah, I’m definitely going to watch a promo video for a non-profit.” Shut up, just watch it.

Also, shout out to local Molly Steinmetz for the awesome Valentine card that I got for Ashlinn. Check out her storenvy shop and her tumblr!

Back to Back Buddy Promo Posts!

Some friends of mine are doing a livestream Q&A at 8:30 pm this evening (eastern time, of course) to promote the release of the first episode of No Refund for Content. Check out the trailer below and watch the Ustream here.


Follow No Refund for Content as it progresses on the Facebook page, their Twitter and the website, where you can find a little button that says “Donate.” I wonder what that does? Somebody should do some investigating.

UPDATE:
Episode 1 is live and can be viewed below!

Damnationland 2012


This is the first year that I have helped out on a shoot for Damnationland, a showcase of horror films by Maine filmmakers. I only worked on one, but it was a blast, even of it was cold and wet and the location was far away and in the end I may have only bounced light for one or two shots. The premiere is happening right here in Portland on October 19th. You can learn more about it on the Facebook page, or if you’re already won over, buy tickets here. If you can’t make it on the 19th or if you’re not in Portland, don’t fret. Damnationland will be making stops in Brunswick, Lewiston, and Bridgton, plus New York, Los Angeles, and Athens, Ohio. Previous excuses have been rendered invalid.

Up My Alley


That is Elly Blue of Taking the Lane and Joe Biel of Cantankerous Titles. This photo is from an event put on by TRANSPORTland. This has to be the best idea for a bike race ever. 30+ miles, with obstacles and 100 pounds of “emergency supply” cargo. Brilliant!
