Kids History: Christmas Edition

I produced, wrote, and directed this comedic Christmas short film for Trinity Grace Church Park Slope! TGC Park Slope – Kids’ History: Christmas Edition from Trinity Grace Church on Vimeo.  

Jerry & Diane

Chris Domig and Margaret Copeland Hunter star in my not-so-romantic comedy short film about a guitar lesson gone wrong, Jerry & Diane, which premiered at the Big Apple Film Festival at the Tribeca Cinemas on November 9th, 2014. Jerry is a desperate ‘guitar teacher’ hoping to ‘take it to the next level’ with his favorite…

Sonnet #42 for the New York Shakespeare Exchange

I directed (adapted, shot, and edited too) another sonnet for Shakespeare Exchange‘s The Sonnet Project – a great project here in NYC that is aiming to film all of Shakespeare’s sonnets, each performed by a different actor in a carefully chosen New York City location. This time I shot Sonnet 42 about a jilted lover. The location I…

Sonnet #143 for the New York Shakespeare Exchange

I directed (adapted, shot, and edited) Sonnet 143 for Shakespeare Exchange‘s The Sonnet Project – a great project here in NYC that is aiming to film all of Shakespeare’s sonnets, each performed by a different actor in a carefully chosen New York City location. Sonnet 143 is about a mama, her baby, and a chicken. Or is it really? Grand Central…

View from the Q

I directed this short one-act play by Sharifa Williams called “The View from the Q” for the Players Theatre‘s Short Play & Music Festival. But it had been a while since I’d directed theatre and I was a little nervous, but looking for something to do, when Sharifa Williams emailed me about potentially directing the play…

Sonny

Sonny is a short film that I wrote in 2009 and shot in 2010. It premiered in LA in 2013. Sonny is about a homeless man who squats in a dirty old RV on an empty lot. When he meets a brash young woman named Annie at the local recycling depot, his world is turned…

Less Ado About Nothing

This is an hour-long one-act abridged adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing that I adapted, produced, and directed just before I got married (hence the different last name). It ran as a part of Pacific Theatre‘s Second Stage Series — Stone’s Throw Productions — for three sold-out nights. Much Ado About Nothing has been my…

The Most Massive Woman Wins

Challenging, brutal, and hilarious. Four women of various shapes and sizes sit in the waiting room of a liposuction clinic exploring their perceptions of body image. I directed this fascinating one-act play by Madeleine George for the Directing Showcase at ORU in 2001. Photos forthcoming.

Messiah Come Again

I wrote, produced, and directed this hour-long one-act musical. It’s a great script to celebrate Easter. Designed for three men, six women, and six to a dozen children, plus narrators, it could be great for churches that already have a drama or dance program in place. It was first produced in Canada at Victory Christian Center…

Jesus

I wrote, produced, and directed this two-act musical Christmas pageant with cast of 34, ages 5 to 50, back while I was still in university. A mostly monologue-driven play about the birth of Christ, this play was co-produced by The Worship Center and Victory Christian Center, two different churches in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. This…
