The No-Sit List hits DVD…in France

by on Jan.23, 2010, under Projects

So… even though The No-Sit List still hasn’t been released in the US, I just saw the French DVD had come out from Sony Home Entertainment.  (Check the logo on the DVD box spine below.)

A little lesson for all you aspiring directors out there.  I found out about the release when someone sent me a link to the French Amazon.com page.

I do love the title, by the way.  <<Danny la terreur>>.  And the synopsis just sounds classier in French: Danny, un adorable petit garçon de 7 ans, a des parents très occupés. Il est donc tous les soirs gardé par une nounou. Pour retrouver une vraie vie de famille, Danny va apprendre à être méchant et à devenir la terreur des baby-sitters…

If anyone sees a copy, I’d love to hear how it plays in French.  And all you American kids, guess you have to wait a few more months.

The No-Sit List is out on DVD from Sony Home Entertainment...so far only in French!

My second feature film is The No-Sit List. It’s a family film starring Trenton Rogers, Danny Trejo, Dee Wallace-Stone, Rico Rodriguez, Chris Cleveland, Kate Orsini, and Brittany Finamore.

The story is about a boy Danny Parker whose parents must leave him with babysitters too often. He learns about the “no-sit list” the list of kids who are too bad for anyone to babysit for. He thinks that if he can just get on that list, his parents will have to spend more time with him. But Danny’s a good kid who’ll have to learn how to be bad.

Since we filmed the movie, the young stars went on to a lot of success on other things. Trenton appeared in a bunch of films, including the opening of He’s Just Not That Into You. Rico is now on ABC’s series, “Modern Family.”

Entry Level

by on Jan.23, 2010, under Projects

Entry Level is my first feature film.  Someone summed it up as. “An enjoyable comedy about job-seekers.”  Yep.  (I wouldn’t want to get a swollen head with all that praise.)

The film follows chef Clay Maguire (D.B. Sweeney) as he loses his restaurant, girlfriend, and self-respect, then tries to re-enter the workforce by going out on a bunch of job interviews.  (Not really the way to regain your self-respect!)  Along the way he meets other perennial job-seekers (Missi Pyle, and others).  He also gets ‘advice’ from his job counsellor (Cedric Yarbrough) and homeless pal (Kurtwood Smith).

Entry Level won awards for Best Picture and Best Screenplay at the Visionfest film festival.

My first feature, "Entry Level."

Entry Level stars D.B. Sweeney, Missi Pyle, Kurtwood Smith, Taylor Negron, Lisa Ann Walter, and Cedric Yarbrough.  Some real comedy greats–and I got to write their dialogue and direct them.  That was pretty much heaven as far as I’m concerned. 

I’ll probably be writing a lot more about various aspects of the film as this blog continues.  I wanted to get a quick description about the film up on the site.
