Like Ingrid Bergman – Available online!

Hey guys.

This is just a quick update to let you know that “Like Ingrid Bergman” is now online and available to all!

It’s the first thing I’ve done in NYC out of school so it’ll always have a special place in my heart.

Black Box *** SUB *** Eye of Horus *** John Oliver

Hey guys! It’s been a while but I have some things to tell/show you!

Last night I was on ABC’s Black Box. The episode is called “Kodachrome” and was directed by the lovely Brownen Hughes.

I played the photographer and though for the most part you can hear my voice, it was a really fun experience and I got to work with really lovely people.

Here it is:

(I also added it to the media page, of course).

There were also a couple of promotional photos that can be seen in the gallery.

Here’s one of them:

I finally finished writing my book “SUB.”

It is currently being edited by my friend Terias McKlay who also edited “As We Were.” We’re aiming for a September release. If it’ll be ready before, believe me, you’ll know. In the mean time, I give you the cover. Art by the extremely talented Hila Taylor (who also did the wonderful cover of As We Were and whose stuff you should totally buy.)

I believe we are 2 episodes away from my 4 episode stint on “The Eye of Horus,” but here are some new promotional photos. All courtesy of “The Eye of Horus.

Last, but not least, I’m very proud to say that our sketch with Lisa Loeb on John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight,” got more than 500,000 views on YouTube (and counting).

It even had some reactions due to the nature of things. Here’s an article on Deadline Hollywood about it!

I think this update was pretty satisfying, don’t you?

More to follow! Have a great weekend!

John Oliver *** Additional updates

category: Uncategorized

Hey!

yes, it’s been a while and my previous excuses still stand, but still, here’s a quick update.

Last night, John Oliver’s new show, Last Week Tonight, premiered.

I love John Oliver and so the opportunity to take part of his first show, felt pretty awesome.

I took part in a skit, addressing (i.e. mocking) the Oregon healthcare website.

The crew was great, the other actors were great, director Ryan McFaul is pretty awesome, and we had Lisa Loeb singing for us.

All in all, a pretty nice day in Roosevelt Island.

Here’s a picture from the official Last Week Tonight Twitter account, followed by a full video of the skit.

The above shenanigans led to some website updates. By that I mean the resume page and the media page (new section! “video appearances”).

I also told you I’m MIA because I’m working on a new book. I didn’t lie. I believe I’m somewhere around 65% done with the actual writing (I know, it’s quite specific), and I really want to get it out there around September, hopefully after a thorough edit.

But I swear, it doesn’t mean I don’t go out there and do other work, I expect more updates in the next month or so.

Have a lovely May!

Goldstars *** The Eye Of Horus *** The Black Box

Hey gang.

Just a quick update.

I know it’s been a while so I didn’t want to leave you uninformed.

I’ve been out of the country for a while, visiting Israel, England and France all in the span of 5 weeks.

Was exhausting and energizing at the same time, somehow.

But just so you know that a few things are coming up:

I have a little guest appearance in the new webshow “Goldstars” by Lane Moore.

4 upcoming episodes on the webshow “The Eye of Horus.”

And a part on one of the episodes of the new upcoming medical drama “The Black Box”, coming to ABC, taking over Scandal’s time slot after the season wraps.

I’m also working on a new book which is another reason why I kept quiet. I promise a more elaborated update once these projects will be live.

In the mean time, keep warm!

IAJF Annual Gala *** Living With Your Sidekick *** Like Ingrid Bergman

category: Crossover Games

Hey guys.

I’m taking off for a vacation soon. One can hope that a lot of writing will be done during the 4 weeks away from NYC, but in the meantime, let me tell you about the last few weeks.

First of all, we celebrated the annual gala of the IAJF ealier in November. It’s my third year with them, on the production team, and every year it gets better and better.

This year we had a former prime minister of Israel as the keynote speaker, in addition to a paralympic medalist who also gave a speech.

Interesting, moving stuff.

Once again, the event took place at the Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Arts Center in NYC.

I loyaly took my post at the control room to make sure all of the visual material of the night is managed smoothly. I think it’s the best view in the house.

The second episode of “Living With Your Sidekick” is here! Written by yours truly, and while revolving mostly around Camille Theobald’s character, I’m most definitely present. And quite gross if you ask me. Watch below.

Like Ingrid Bergman (which will always have a special place in my heart as it is the first film I did in NYC) is featured on the website ShortsHD this month. To be more specific, it’s the number one in the top 10 of “must watch this month.” It is broadcasting all around the world, so I dare say it’s pretty cool.

My sources are telling me that it’s on ch. 573 on Direct TV (HD package) and 375 on Dish. Should be available to you from wherever you are!

The holidays are upon us. *all* of them, so happy holidays to you all!

 

 

 

 

Living with Your Sidekick *** Eye of Horus *** Website updates

Hey guys.

I know it’s been ages. A lot is going on and it means less time to update, and trying to batch a few things together for an update.

First and foremost, the yearly IAJF gala is coming up on November 7th, at the Alice Tully Hall here in NYC, which means I’m spending some quality time with different Office programs. We have amazing speakers this year, with former prime minister and and a paralympic medalist. All very exciting. But more about that, maybe later on

I’ve been collaborating with my dear friend, Camille Theobald, on a new web project. Camille and I worked together many times before, she directed some of the episodes of “Hit the MARC” and even guest starred every now and then. We brought Juan J. Arroyo on board. He directed the second half of Hit the MARC.

Basically, what we did, is a two parts pilot, for a show called “Living with Your Sidekick.”

What happens when two super heroes move in together to improve their efficiency? Maybe the opposite of efficiency.

Anyways, we’d like to see where it goes, and it has a bit of interactive element to it. We just released our first episode, introducing one of the two heroes. Next episode will be released next week. Check it out!

 

We also have some original art work by the wonderful Hila Taylor. Just a little taste:

Poster no harry potter

A lot is going on with the “The Eye of Horus” lately, I just can’t exactly tell you about it because it’s in Japanese : )

The show is set to premiere in America on the internet in November. In the mean time, it had a premiere in Tokyo, Japan, in addition to Osaka. There will be a premiere event in London, and in NYC. Once I know more, I’ll share, but it seems like people really enjoyed the Tokyo premiere, and considering the amazing camera work, and the beautiful locations we used, I can’t wait to see it!

Feel free to check the website, it has bios and all sorts of fun stuff.

On the technical side, I updated the resume page, added the episode of “Sidekick” to the reel page, and updated the production page!

Have a great week everyone!
