Filmed "Project Clear Vision" - April 30, 2006
Shooting for the feature "Project Clear Vision" began today, and my scenes as James Riley were first. Unfortunately, due to a technical issue, we didn't get around to shooting my shooting. Did that make sense? We blocked and rehearsed the scene a bit, though, and will come back another day to finish up. That's too bad because I was really looking forward to getting bloody today. Oh well. Soon. Very soon. To learn more about the film, visit Z-List Films
Filmed "Palm Beach Tan" - April 12, 2006
I completed filming scenes for a Palm Beach Tan industrial, playing numerous parts. We worked for two days, and it was a lot of fun. Oh, yeah, and we wrapped at 6:30 this morning, so I am just a bit tired.
Filmed "Strain" - April 9, 2006
We completed filming "Strain" today, after shooting all weekend. What a jerk my character, Tommy, is! Ah, yes, and what an easy role for me. Hardly any acting involved. I'm kidding, of course. Let's see... On Friday, I filmed my guitar-playing scene, and I smoked an entire pack of cigarettes. Gross. I have never smoked before, so I had to actually learn how on set. My lungs are still mad at me. On Saturday, we shot the comic book store scene, where I got into it with the manager and gave Jake some of my good advice. And on Sunday, I broke up with my girlfriend, Janine, and violated her toothbrush. What fun!
Filmed "Wealth Before Patriotism" - April 3, 2006
We shot the short film "Wealth Before Patriotism" today. I played a tail gunner named Cagney who is injured when his B25 bomber is shot down during the Battle of the Coral Sea. The plane crashes on an island, and the surviving crew members are picked off one by one by the Japanese. Delirious from the pain of his injuries, Cagney drifts in and out of consciousness. He hallucinates that a beautiful woman is dancing before him, only to realize too late that it is a Japanese soldier coming in for the kill. He is decapitated in a most dramatic fashion. I think I still have blood in my ears and hair.
Cast in "Wealth Before Patriotism" - March 23, 2006
I have been cast as a member of a B25 bomber crew in "Wealth Before Patriotism." It's a short WWII film about the crew of a B25 bomber that is shot down in 1942, during the Battle of the Coral Sea. Anyone have a bomber's jacket I can borrow?
Filmed "A House Divided" - March 16, 2006
I filmed a scene for the new ABC pilot "A House Divided" today. I got to play a wheat farmer from northern Kansas. It was a long day, but I had a good time working with some new people, as well as others that I worked with on Walker, Texas Ranger. I was also a stand-in for Jason Wiles.
