Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working on a movie called Junkie you can see the trailer here The Official Director’s Cut. This was the first of several projects that I have completed or will be involved with in 2016. I wanted to give everyone that follows my blog a quick breakdown of what I have done. I’m really looking forward to doing more!
- The Gate – I started off as an Executive Producer for The Gate. I had a supporting role as well but other commitments stopped me so my good friend and coach Kevin Garcia stepped in and killed it! This is an action packed short that is in the process of becoming a feature film if all goes well. You can read about it here on deadline and watch the video here The Gate – Madison Films.
- Junkie – This is a feature film that stars Christian Kane, Anna Easteden, James Duval, Eve Mauro, and several other excellent actors. This was filmed in Sacramento (which I really enjoyed) and in this one I played Sonny. Sonny has some anger management issues and has a strong passion for breaking things (any thing or person will do). You will be able to watch this one soon in theaters or online (I’ll let you know). We are already working on Junkie 2 with an even bigger cast and crew!
- Styx Series – This one was a bucket list type of engagement. I flew over to beautiful Valencia, Spain to take part in an innovative international TV series. In this series the cast comes back in each episode as a different person or character and it’s a bit like a modern Twilight Zone. The episodes we filmed in May starred Santiago Segura, Jesus Lloveras, Ruslan Alov, Ana De los Riscos, Johnny Melville, Gary Anthony Stennette, and Mari Cielo Pajares. I can’t tell you too much about this production but I can tell you it will blow you away. I’m looking forward to going back to Spain to film more episodes in the future and to see all the great friends I met filming on location.
- Jax in Love – This is the brain child of an incredible actress, Rakefet Abergel. She put together a very talented cast including John Gammon, Ben Kacsandi, Larua Wiggins, and many more. We filmed (my scenes) at the Four Aces Movie Set in Palmdale, CA. That is an iconic set where quite a few music videos and films have used. It’s an incredible place if you get the opportunity to visit. This film is going to really surprise you with several twists and turns making it a thrill ride.
Coming soon (booked for 2016): The Choice is Yours, Endeavor, Knocking on Heaven’s Door, Pranksters, A Dare to Remember, The Perfect Night, Junkie II, and more episodes of Styx.
I am really enjoying the variety of projects that I have been working on and going to auditions (or sending in video auditions). What’s amazing is it gives you an opportunity to challenge yourself in new ways with literally every project. The opportunity to meet new people and collaborate with such incredible talent is also one I am very grateful for. If you are involved with any of these projects, I thank you! I also owe a huge debt of gratitude to all my friends and family especially my wife Jolene for all the support. I couldn’t do any of this without all of you!
