Judgement Passing



If you live in the Atlanta area and haven't seen Judgement yet... and you don't want to watch it online... you can see it this weekend on Georgia Public Television. It will be shown, along with a brief interview with me, on PBA 30's Atlanta Shorts

.

Judgement was made as part of the 48 Hour Film Project in 2005. The curious thing is that it is the first of my films to deal with the father/daughter con artists, who would later return in Psychopathia, and who are the subject of my new screenplay The Seventh Daughter (though each manifestation is very different).

Puppetastic

I'm not one of those bloggers that just posts links to the latest catchy online clips, but I did want to send out a shout about a new short film by Jason Hines. As some of you may know, Jason designed the shadow puppet sequence of Psychopathia Sexualis. He is a master puppetmaker at the Center for Puppetry Arts and every year he participates in the annual event Experimental Puppetry Theatre (this year it's May 19).

Anyway, he made this short film to help promote XPT. I am always in awe of his wit and craftsmanship. Check it out, here's the link:
