A ton of springtime film screenings!
This June, two projects that I wrote, produced, and acted in will be screening at some fun festivals!
I'm thrilled to announce that LIGHTHOUSE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL will be screening both my 12-minute pilot Benefits with Friends and the short film The PA Stays in the Picture. LIFF will be happening June 7-10, 2018 in Long Beach Island, NJ. It's an amazing festival made even better by the beach, the friendly people, and the insane amounts of quality ice cream to be found there.

And if you can't make it to the beach, you can catch The PA Stays in the Picture at THE ART OF BROOKLYN FILM FESTIVAL. It's a 5-minute film that follows a determined PA on a film set, tasked with getting the nicotine-starved director some coffee or die trying. I made this film in conjunction with fellow members of Filmshop, and I'm happy to say that AoBFF is screening a bunch of Filmshop members' work. I guess we make okay stuff?

"Slumming it" at Dixon place
If you watch "The Alienist" you might be familiar with Paresis Hall, an infamous gathering place for 19th century gay prostitutes, named after the final stage of syphilis. On July 3, I'll be helping to celebrate our relative independence from STD's while paralleling the hate and intolerance that is unfortunately still with us today. Jack Shamblin's Slumming It is a staged reading that is part of Dixon Place's Hot! Festival. I'm very excited to be playing Dr. Comstock, a historical figure known for mounting moral crusades to save America from weirdos like me.
