A Series of Unfortunate Events.

4 Oct

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been in San Francisco for several weeks now writing for the second season of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events based on the popular novels by Lemony Snicket.

I can’t say much more than that at this time, but I can say I’ve been on a lot of hikes, drank a lot of espressos, and eaten my fair share of Ramen in Japantown.

Watch this space. This is going to be good.

Praise for “Curmudgeons”

26 Apr

“Curmudgeons may very well be Danny DeVito’s best film.” I’m gutted that TriBeCa has closed and I have to go back to my normal life now.

Check out this glowing review.

I sat down with a flock of Devitos to discuss my film Curmudgeons at TriBeCa Film Festival. Check it out.

“Curmudgeons” to Premiere at TriBeCa Film Festival.

8 Apr

I’m beyond excited to share that my short film Curmudgeons is premiering at the TriBeCa Film Festival in one week. It’s already been accepted to a few other festivals around the world (that I’m not allowed to share just yet) but suffice it to say you’ll have plenty of opportunities to check it out.

I’m thrilled to announce the formation of my new theater company, DODO. I’ve felt the need to begin something big and new for a while now, and I’m doing just that with some of my closest collaborators Megan Hill, Amy Staats and Meg Sturiano.

Check out our beautiful website.

We’re doing our first performance this evening. We’ve begun a series of “triptychs”- three pieces written and performed around a theme. In this case the theme is “rituals.” We’ll be performing a new triptych every few months so watch this space.

Long live DODO!

Little Lord.

Very excited to be working with my dear old friends, Little Lord. If you don’t know their work, they make experimental junk theater around found texts.

I’m collaborating with them on a piece created around LEAR. That is, nonsense poet and artist Edward Lear, 1970’s TV impresario Norman Lear, and Shakespeare’s King Lear. All mushed up into one weird little “play”!

Whatever it turns out to be, it’ll be funny and weird and maybe moving as well. Details to follow!

“Curmudgeons” Wraps.

22 Oct

Excited to announce that my short film Curmudgeons, starring David Margulies, Danny Devito, Lucy Devito, Sarah Nina Hayon and Kett Turton wraps tomorrow. It’s been an incredible experience working with these amazing artists and I can’t wait to share the results with the world.

This started as a short play in Ensemble Studio Theatre’s annual Marathon. If you would have told me a few years ago it would end up here, I would have said you were insane.

We’re editing quickly in the hopes to submit to Tribeca Film Fest and others. More to come on this!
