Uni is Wrapped

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

We are wrapped on the longest and most ambitious shoot I have ever undertaken!
And it was a huge success!

I can’t thank the cast and crew enough for all their killer work on the film!
Now I will get all the footage into post production and make a short film you’ll all be proud of!

In the meantime, you can check out a ton of behind the scenes photos on the Uni facebook page.

Short Film Fundraiser!

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Hey Everyone & Anyone!

How would you like throw your support behind some hard working filmmakers trying to put together short film?

I am working on a new short film called Uni starring stand up comedian and actor Darcy Michael. The short is a comic satire of Ex-Gay Reprogramming camps and the idea that someone can be trained to be “normal”.

We need to raise some capital to help pay for the production, so I have launched a crowd sourcing fundraiser on IndieGoGo to do just that.

As a bonus, not only will your donation help us, you’ll also get come COOL GIFTS for being our patron! You can get everything from a Uni button to an Executive Producer credit on the finished film!

So, please, give our fundraiser a look and consider donating something to the cause! (Or if you can’t donate right now, please pass the link to any friends that might be interested and you click the “feature it” button located under the perks on the Uni IndieGoGo page to get the whole fundraiser featured on the IndieGoGo homepage.)

Finally, here is our synopsis for the film for your reading pleasure:

Darcy loves nothing more than donning his homemade unicorn costume and fighting alongside his friends in epic live-action roleplaying battles. But when his family grows impatient with his “alternative lifestyle,” they pressure him into joining a bizarre treatment camp that promises to give Darcy everything his needs to finally become a normal guy.

WILL Darcy smite the forces of conformity and remain true to his true majestic-horned self? SHALL the minions of shame and self-loathing drag our stout-hearted hero into the black void of normalcy? WHAT titillating adventures await at the Senator Larry Craig Rest Stop on the I-64? IS there enough Mountain Dew Code red for the ride home in dad’s Volvo? DOES this beige windbreaker make my ass look fat? HOW many more questions can I ask before this motif becomes irritating?

…only time will tell. (Or will it? (Yes, it will))
