Making Movies and Leading by Example

In this humble filmmaker's opinion, if you want to teach someone, do it by example.

So here we go.

My brand new short film is getting ready to explode on the film festival circuit. It's been about a year since I made a film that got out there, so I knew it was time to make another one. And this time, in a rare twist, I'm starring in the film as well. Was an award winning stage and film actor for over 15 years before turning over to the Directing role. It's fun exercising those old acting chops after about a 10 year rest.

WOODY THE REDNECK will be having its World Premiere next month in Cape Cod at the Woods Hole Film Festival. 3 weeks later, its Southeast premiere in Birmingham at the Sidewalk Film Festival. Then 2 weeks later, its West Coast premiere in Las Vegas at the Cine Vegas Film Festival. Just finished making this little 5 minute mockumentary about 2 months ago and began sending it out to festivals around the world. My films to date have screened at over 300 film festivals worldwide. So I've already built and established a global film audience. And they wait constantly for my next film. So no more film submission fees. And complete freedom to make my own films my own way.

WOODY is going to shock the world. At least, to those who see it. And more shocking than anything, the character and film is based on actual events.

Lead by example. That's the way I look at things. This 25 year veteran film/stage artist has a lot to teach. And still a lot to create.
