I’m stoked to announce that, for the second year in a row, one of my drawings has been selected for inclusion in the group exhibition, “Take Home A Nude” coming up at Sotheby’s this month. The event is in collaboration with the New York Academy of Art and Paddle 8. My charcoal piece, “Hand of the Drummer” is open for bids from now until the event at Sotheby’s, NY on October 15th. Charcoal on 15”x20” paper.

SOLD OUT UK SCREENING AT THE GFT

We could not have been happier with the UK reception to “Funny You Never Knew.” A great audience turned up and we finished with a lively Q&A with the director, Andrew Hunt and his co-editor Colin Goudie. This screening followed the Masterclass they did earlier in the day which was also sold out. Thank you Glasgow and the GFT for putting on such a great event!

Andrew Hunt & Colin Goudie give UK Masterclass

Co-editors of “Funny You Never Knew,” Andrew Hunt and Colin Goudie (Star Wars: Rogue One), gave a sold-out masterclass at the historic Glasgow Film Theatre in Scotland this summer. They explored the director/editor relationship in the making of a film with a particular focus on their collaboration on FYNK.

"Funny You Never Knew" wins another award!

Yes - another award! My co-editor, Colin Goudie (Star Wars: Rogue One) and I won the award for "Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking: Editing (Documentary) for "Funny You Never Knew." 

The award stands as a marker to what was an amazing experience getting to work with Colin again. Those of you who know Colin, or have worked with him, will be nodding in agreement here because Colin is just one of those rare human beings who brings all of himself to a project and cares as much about you as person as he does about the film he's working on. 

I’ve included some photos from our time at the Newport Beach Film Festival. It was a fantastic Film Festival and we had an absolute ball with both our premiere and repeat screenings getting sold out and each having a waiting list!

Highlight for me, personally, however, was driving Fred Willard and Bill Hayes home after our premiere screening and hearing some amazing stories about how Fred ended up doing the cult classic “Spinal Tap” and the amazing people they’ve both worked with over the years. So cool!

"Funny You Never Knew" nearing completion

As we are coming toward the end of easily the most challenging project in my career I thought it was fitting to include some behind the scenes photos from our last day of shooting on "Funny You Never Knew" with Kevin Pollak and Fred Willard in Los Angeles. The cinematographer pictured below is the talented and lovely Nancy Schreiber, A.S.C and the location was the home of Emmy-award winning comedy writer Jerry Belson (Dick Van Dyke Show, Tracy Ullman Show) who is sadly no longer with us. 

We have some remaining bits of the licensing process to complete after which we will, at last, be able to go into the final sound mix and picture grade. Will keep you posted...
