Did you wish you could spellcheck—or have an app autocorrect—your typing throughout Chrome on any website?

Yeah, there's an extension for that.  Totally recommend Spell Bee for Chrome.  Huge help in productivity and speed when typing on various sites.

If you're a filmmaker and want to showcase your work in front of a global audience, submit your #film or #webseries  to the 2015 #UGPFF now, during their early bird period. Link: https://filmfreeway.com/festival/ugpff

This interactive film festival will host both online and live events across the world in November, 2015.  Select short films will also be shown at the #Balinale pre-festival celebration in Bali on Kuta Beach from Sept. 18 - Sept. 20.

Back in 2012, the satirical action-comedy series I created, GENERIC GIRL, was an official festival selection.  Being part of the festival enabled my producing partner and I to interact with viewers and filmmakers around the world—an amazing experience.  We were also able to talk on a panel and meet people thousands of miles away, united through the universal language of storytelling.

If you have questions about the festival or upcoming events in #LosAngeles , let me know!

Commercial  - 
 
Hey fellow filmmakers, here's a recent public service announcement (PSA) that I produced for a client on texting and driving.  It was conceived by The Warp Zone (YouTube channel) and commissioned by the National Highway Traffic Safety Admin.

The Warp Zone guys race through a video game world (inspired by manga Initial-D and old school racing games) until destruction ensues.

We did a two-day shoot at a studio in Los Angeles and on location in the desert near Indio/Palm Springs.  Post required many more days with our VFX team, sound editor, and editor.

Ask me anything about the production and thanks for watching.

New poster for the spy thriller film I'm producing, The Dangle.

Read about the retro-styled poster and why we are making an independent film on my new Indiegogo update.  You can support us in completing this period piece by visiting our Indiegogo page below—thank you!

Here's our movie poster designed by writer-director Michael Ravich and artist Gill Friedman II. The retro aesthetic captures the mystery and dark comedy tones of the film—with a hint of one fierce, femme fatale never to be crossed. There is also another hint which figures prominently in the film itself... but you'll have to watch it to see for yourself.

You can order a postcard, 11" x 17" mini-poster, or full 24" x 36" poster on our Indiegogo page. Your orders will support us in completing the film and submitting to top tier festivals from Sundance to Tribeca.

Thanks for checking out our new spy thriller.  If you have questions about producing, feel free to hit me up.

My latest post on the #Indiegogo page for my new spy film The Dangle is about fantastically fierce females. Hop in the wayback machine with us to marvel at some classic women and the mystique of the femme fatale.

Howdy fellow filmmakers—please check out the trailer to the award-winning series I produced, Generic Girl.  We've had a great response to our satirical action-comedy since launching online in 2012.

AMA about how to produce an 80-minute, 10 episode series on a shoestring budget.  Thanks—and keep making great films.

You can see the complete series at http://gogenericgirl.com

I posted a recent thank you to the contributors of the new spy film I'm producing, The Dangle. We've received great support from fellow filmmakers, podcasters, and friends.  If you're considering , you can do it well—but it takes planning, time, and a personal touch.

Speaking of personal touch, we love spy films (with humor) and just started asking trivia through our campaign. Here's our first trivia question: what film did Roger Moore appear in as this clown?

And what's your favorite espionage film?  ;)

Friendly service and one of the few green dry cleaners in Torrance which uses environmentally sustainable chemicals. They close relatively early in the evening, so check their hours if you want to pick up your clothing after 5PM.

Recommended for your top and beard, just make sure you call in advance. Brian is skilled with the razor as well- great work.

A true hidden gem in a city of myriad restaurants, some much heavier on hype than quality. We came here for Valentine's Day and every detail from the hostess through dessert was excellent. We could choose from either the prix fixe or the main menu (not always an option on major holidays like this) and we were delighted with the three courses on the prix fixe menu with paired wines. The subtly lit atmosphere with a live musician and film reels festooning the ceiling (a nod to the Barrymores) imparts a balance of old school Vegas and New American fine dining. If you're seeking a delicious dinner experience off the beaten boulevard path, definitely try The Barrymore.

Gary always provides warm customer service. He repaired several watches belonging to my girlfriend including one which another watch shop was unable to fix. He even found a replacement band which was almost identical to the original. Highly recommended!

Proof is always a sweet spot for a finely-crafted pastry and a meeting. Finding a table for more than three people is a challenge especially on a busy mid-morning. Parking on the side streets without meters has usually been a good bet.
