I’m excited to be launching many of my very best films on the VOD platform Reelhouse–starting with my two best-known short films Full Disclosure and Coffee & Pie.
Very soon I’ll be writing more about the release, why I chose this platform, and how other filmmakers can do the same thing. For now, I hope you enjoy the films. More are coming including my brand new comedy short film Tape Recorder. (continue reading…)
People have been asking me how they can get my short film Coffee and Pie. Well I’m very pleased to announce that after countless festivals, several awards, and some really great nominations—like the 2012 Iris Prize—Coffee and Pie is now available to watch on mobile devices via the mobile app Worldwide Movie Theater.
Coffee and Pie is an anti-romantic comedy—a funny look at the end of a relationship that takes a unique turn. The film has strong and hilarious performances by Amy Seimetz, Sophia Takal, and Karen Chamberlain. I may be a bit partial, but I think it’s a must-watch short film.
A new way to watch short films
The Worldwide mobile app is also a pretty cool way to watch movies on an iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You can download the free app (iOS version | Android version) and use it to preview the first few minutes of any of the films.
To watch a film you simply pay $1.99 for each “time zone” (Western, Mountain, Central, Eastern) and you can watch all the films in that time zone group. That’s over 20 films you can watch in the Eastern time zone for less than two bucks. The Western time zone has seven. So that’s a lot of bang for your two bucks!
A lot of great stuff is happening for my independent series DIVERGENCE. The series is an official selection at New Media Festival in Los Angeles at the Landmark Theater June 11-12, 2013. Dan and I will both be in attendance and will do a Q&A. You can still get tickets, though I’ve heard from the festival that very few remain.
As great as that is, the big news is that we now have five new episodes to air. DIVERGENCE Season One Episodes 7 through 11 will start airing June 10, 2013 with a new episode each week. We will be on our regular YouTube channel if you like watching it there, but we are trying to push traffic to our own site, WhatIsDivergence.com — which is getting a facelift and new player thanks to our joining the ZOE Network. I’m going to write a post about ZOE shortly because it’s quite impressive what they’ve built and we are very pleased to be joining their family of web series.
And we have even more DIVERGENCE news coming, so keep an eye out!
I’m excited to announce that there will be a dramatic reading of my testosterone-fueled poker thriller DEAD MAN’S HAND this week in Seattle with many of Seattle’s finest actors. This life-and-death tale of modern male camaraderie and betrayal is my own Reservoir Dogs.
DEAD MAN’S HAND
A staged screenplay reading of a screenplay by Douglas Horn. Produced by Ronald Leamon.
Performed by: Basil Harris, Rich Morris, Jesse Lee Keeter, Tony Doupe, Michael Patten, Peter Dylan O’Connor, Thomas Brophy, and Brian Desmond.
The screenplay reading is Friday, May 10th at 6:00 PM at the SIFF Cinema at the SIFF Film Center in Seattle Center. (Near the Key Arena, Seattle peeps! NOT the SIFF Cinema Uptown.)
Because Friday is a busy night in Seattle film circles (NWFF Gala, STIFF, etc), it looks like there may still be some availability for this free reading. So I thought I’d open it up to readers of my blog. (And, I suppose anyone who links to the page) to join us. Please RSVP to email@example.com to reserve a seat. There is a seat limit and once we reach that we’ll have to stop accepting RSVPs.
I hope you can come by. This is one of my favorite scripts and the cast is remarkable.
I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be shooting a new comedic narrative short film, Tape Recorder, starring Basil Harris and Alycia Delmore in a couple weeks in the Seattle area. This short will be quite different from any I’ve done before, but my hope is, if you like Full Disclosure or any of my other films, you’ll really enjoy Tape Recorder.
