Now Streaming: The Confession

confI am thrilled to announce that The Confession is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Many thanks to Director/Producer Jaclyn Gramigna for overseeing the production of the film, and to the rest of our team for their great work. Above all, we’re grateful to our supporters on Seed&Spark, who helped make this 95% crowdfunded film a reality.

(The other 5% was paid for by yours truly, to cover a few overages. If you enjoy The Confession, feel free to send over a few dollars to help offset that added cost).

Please also feel free to share a link, as soon as you’re done watching, on Twitter or Facebook. Happy viewing!

Summary: Jacob and Ellen wander through Brooklyn, the morning after spending the night together for the first time. Jacob’s acting strange. Ellen wonders why. A confession is coming. And it’s not what you expect.

Multiverse Screening: Encore Indiefilm Showcase

I’m excited to announce that Multiverse will be screening at the Encore Indiefilm Showcase on this Thursday, 7/24 in Portland, OR, at 7PM. We’ll be playing with Amy Seimetz’s Sun Don’t Shine.

A reclusive young woman braves a night out in NYC and is confronted by an increasingly isolating series of strange events.

This is our first public screening (with a few more hopefully to follow). We’re looking forward to sharing the film with the Portland community and thank Jason W. de Parrie-Turner and Jeanne de Parrie-Turner at Encore for inviting us to participate.

For anyone who is new to this site, Multiverse is the latest (completed) film produced by myself and Rebecca De Ornelas. We’re currently crowdunding our first feature, The Videoblogs, on Seed&Spark.

The Videoblogs is thematically similar to Multiverse, and is about a struggling struggling young woman whose life takes a surprise turn when a troubled teenager finds her private video journal.

It's on.

It’s on.

 

Announcing: The Videoblogs

It's on. First feature. Let's do it.

It’s on. First feature. Let’s do it.

The life of a struggling young woman takes a surprise turn when a troubled teenager finds her private video journal.

CURRENTLY CROWDFUNDING ON SEED & SPARK.

Yes, it’s on.

Rebecca and I are proud to announce that we have been in preproduction on our first feature film, The Videoblogs, since June.

We’re currently crowfunding for the minimum amount of funds we need to pay for things like food, insurance, hard drives, etc. Everything else is being done in accordance with a bootstrapped experimental production model that I will write about in more detail soon.

Finally, we could sure use your help spreading the word. Friend me and Rebecca on Facebook, if we aren’t friends already. Follow us on Twitter (me here, her here).

If you can help financially, that would be wonderful, too. Every little bit makes a big difference. And there are plenty of cool perks to donating, like advanced copies of the film — or a personal videoblog from our cat or dog.

Wendy is waiting, humans.

But, honestly, if you like our pitch — it would provide a huge boost if you could share the project with your nearest and dearest. Since you seem to like us (at least a little bit) our hope is that maybe a few of them will like us, too.

Call for Writers (Quick, Easy, Fun)

UPDATE: This call for submissions is now closed. Thanks to everyone who sent in a script! 

Hey, folks.

So Rebecca De Ornelas and I are looking for some help with a fun project that we think could also be a cool way to spark some quick and easy collaboration.

I can’t release the specific details publicly, but here are the basics:

  • We’re looking for several original one 10349148_10101298458056442_6565653928597047063_npage monologues (screenplay format) that tell a difficult story in an honest, perhaps even semi-comedic way.
  • We would like to see a strong cross-section of diverse voices submitting (and please feel free to spread the word on that front).
  • We would like to see a strong cross-section of diverse characters (in terms of age, gender, background) in submissions
  • There is no compensation, however…
  • Selected scripts will be produced and delivered to a few different audiences (including mine on this site).
  • Selected writers must be willing to sign a release that grants us the right to distribute the finished product only within the parameters of our project (you’ll get details).
  • Selected writers will be given a final copy of the video and will retain all copy rights to the produced and written material.

Please do not send any scripts at this time. If you are interested in submitting, or would like more detailed information, let me (Michael) know via Private Message on Twitter or Facebook, or via this site. Twitter and Facebook will get to me faster. Please include your email address at this stage. That is how I will get in contact with you.

The deadline for submission is June 30th.
