Now on IndieFlix: Entry Level and DIVERGENCE: Season One

by on Apr.24, 2014, under Projects

My independent feature Entry Level is now available on IndieFlix.

My independent feature Entry Level is now available on IndieFlix.

I’m very pleased to say that my first feature film, Entry Level, is available again for the first time anywhere–and it’s on a platform that I really love, IndieFlix. Entry Level is a comedy about starting your life over and the craziness of looking for a job. It stars D.B. Sweeney, Missi Pyle, Kurtwood Smith, Cedric Yarbrough, Lisa Ann Walter, and Taylor Negron. It won Best Feature and Best Writing awards at VisionFest and played in several other film festivals. The original distributor, Porchlight Entertainment went belly up and I’m happy to be able to share this film again. You can see its ratings from the DVD version on Netflix. People say some nice things. What’s more, the film is available for the first time in 1080P HD. I hope you’ll check out Entry Level on IndieFlix. (continue reading…)

DIVERGENCE – New Episodes and New Media Festival Screening

by on Jun.05, 2013, under Projects

NEW Episodes of DIVERGENCE coming this week.  Boy, I've been waiting to say that!

NEW Episodes of DIVERGENCE coming this week. Boy, I’ve been waiting to say that!


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, — 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!

The action/sci-fi series DIVERGENCE follows former U.S. Army Intel officer Mark Leonard who struggles with paranoia and PTSD until he discovers that he is, in fact, being tracked by people…who can disappear into thin air. As Mark fights his way deeper into this mysterious world looking for answers, he encounters different factions attacking him or offering help—but precious few answers. Each new discovery draws Mark deeper into a mystery that seems to center on his own dark past.

DIVERGENCE stars Dan Southworth, Damion Poitier, Marta McGonagle, and Courtney Munch. The series created by Douglas Horn and Dan Southworth of POPULAR UPRISING.

This Golden Age of Independent Series

by on May.17, 2012, under Distribution, Internet Television

The Golden Age of Internet programming has begun.

We have entered the Golden Age of Independent Series over the Internet

All media and formats have their Golden Age where artists flock to the new and—unbound by rules, standards, or precedent—create a great variety of amazing and original artworks.  The trouble with a Golden Age is that they are awfully hard to recognize when you’re in the middle of them—and even harder at the beginning.  But I’m here to tell you that the Golden Age of Independent Series over the Internet is beginning.

My bold prediction:

Within two years an independent series airing on the Internet will be generally recognized as being as good as any of the better content on broadcast television—and better than much of the network dreck.

Depending on where you see the state of independent series, this statement is either ludicrous or obvious—I doubt there’s much middle ground.  To me, it’s so plain to see that I worry that I’m pussy-footing around the issue—I should probably shorten the time period to one year and expect a half dozen independent series to be recognized in this way…on the cover of Newsweek.  However, many people are understandably stuck in a Fred/machinima/montages-of-cat-photos mindset when they hear the words “web series” or anything similar, so it’s hard for them to see past the current glut of user-generated content.
