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.

I posted a recent thank you to the contributors of the new spy film I'm producing, The Dangle. If you're considering #crowdfunding , 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?  ;)

Here's the teaser for my new dark comedy spy thriller The Dangle which I'm producing.  An American spy in 1975 Moscow must face the world's greatest assassin... who has plans of her own.

Please visit our Indiegogo page and help us finish post-production.  We'll also be posting more about our filmmaking process, BTS, our DIY gear and sets. If you want to learn how to produce film, please message me. ;) Thanks!

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!

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.

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.
