Below are some film and podcast project highlights from over the years.
The Disappearance Podcast was my one year mind bending serial mystery audio project. Listen now on Apple Podcasts or however you listen to your podcasts.
For over a decade I have directed the Young Filmmakers Workshop, a signature, major weekend-long event that is part film school, part film race, matching aspiring filmmakers with each other under the guidance of industry professionals in the production of original works screened with fanfare during the NH Film Festival’s closing ceremony. Countless program alumni have gone on to studying film in college and have successful film industry careers.
I have helped numerous people and organizations develop podcasts over the years, including media literacy nonprofit Media Power Youth. I have also taught a podcasting MFA elective for the NH Institute of Art. Pictured above: Comedian Juston McKinney (multiple The Tonight Show appearances and Comedy Central specials) makes a podcast on his life in New England. He interviews people from all walks of life who are “making it” in New England or have ties to the region. I was the guest for the pilot episode.
My short film I’m Nobody! Who Are You? was made in cooperation with NPR reporter Sean Hurley, prepared pianist Hauschka, and my wife Danielle Herman. It was screened outdoors in Harvard Square in association with a 1 minute film festival.
The story of two people and how the milestones of their lives revolved around a river, Coming of Age, won the 2012 NH 48 Hour Film Project Best Film Award, Best Directing Award, and Audience Favorite Award. I wrote and directed it. This is one of 10 short films I was involved in producing over 10 years in association with the 48 Hour Film Project.
Odd Noggin Land was a surreal musical web TV show following the adventures of three friends who just so happen to have gigantic food items for heads.
Gravityland was my interactive web video series. It featured a wonderful cast of local actors and original music.
I co-starred in the 3D computer animated short The Toll produced by Hatchling Studios. It debuted at the International Comic-Con and went on to screen at SXSX, Cinequest, DICFF, DragonCon, and many other venues.
Early years: In elementary school, I scripted and shot John’s Adventure in Time in which my grandfather played Davy Crocket. In high school, I collaborated with a talented friend on the film Ed Before He Became an Artichoke which followed the perspective of a man about to jump from the ledge of a skyscraper — awarded a National Gold Award in the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition, screened in Boston, New York, and Washington D.C.
