The Pittsburgh 48 Hour Film Project 2015

It was that time of year again. Time fo the 48 Hour Film Project. It's been a whirlwind since the last time we were here. A year of amazing things.

This time drew the dreaded western and musical genre. Be we took it head on. Our Character was Seth or Sara Tremaine, Our prop was a mug, and Our line was "You can't take it with you."

48 Hour Film Project Austin

After our award winning film last year, our teammate moved down to Austin, Texas. And of course we saw this as an opportunity to get into two 48 hour film projects. Gathering an amazing talent pool together the folks calling themselves "Media Offline" built something amazing. Working over the net I was able to help do some of the writing. Our local VFX wizard actually headed south and pitched in. With three team members working on it from the original Gaff Tape & a Prayer it felt like opening another branch. But really it turned into something original and amazing.

PAX East 2015

Wow, what an amazing trip. For those who have never had the chance to attend a Penny Aracade Expo I cannot recommend it enough. They have been, in my experience, some of the nicest and most enjoyable conventions I have attended. Attendees are polite and cool folk. Panels are engaging. The sellers are great. And it is one of the few places you get the opportunity to mingle with video game creators outside of trade shows.  

Thanks to a robust and friendly community, even tried my hand at the wacky world of costuming this year. Cosplay has always been well represented at PAX and while I'm not sure my StarLord costume knocked it out of the park I had a blast! But seriously my good friend's Cobra Commander is just awesome.

A fun way to get a way for a while. Enjoy a bit of geek culture and community.

Filmapalooza 2015

Talk about an amazing journey. A group of my talented friends and I made a film for the 48 Hour Film Project. And you know what we won the Pittsburgh City Project. That meant we were entered to show our film in Hollywood at the international level competition Filmapalooza, with a chance to win a showing at Cannes. Half a year later I was on a plane to California. And what an amazing time. We didn't get to Cannes but the experiences and people I met with are priceless. And I could not have asked to be in Hillywood with a better group of filmmaking buddies. It will stand as a milestone in my life.
