Today I am heading to the film building for one last hurrah. I probably won’t set foot in that building for a very long time. Bruce Sheridan, the chair of the film department and my thesis advisor, has asked me to help give a diretcing […]

This is a future blog post! I came here from Friday to tell you about how awesome this day will be. See, readers and past Timmy, I (you, past Timmy) just has a meeting with Bruce Sheridan — head of the Columbia College film and […]
Got the new video up for The Aperture Series.
Still hungover from Saturday’s shit storm of drinking. Ugh. But, I do have this new promo for the Aperture series. Check it out.
Never work with animals or kids. It’s the old filmmaking adage. If you do, you can double your production time, hence, doubling your budget. However, tonight, I got to make a tiny, low budget ($0.00) film to announce Oracle Productions new filmmaker platform, The […]
Michael Bay is so cool. He’s the coolest . . . Okay, I’m not a Michael Bay fan. He makes cool looking movies, but he’s just like George Lucas in that he’s a digital & special effects guy. If you were to ask him to […]
It floors me that the disconnect between the academic definition and the professional definition of work is so large. You think I would have learned my lesson after undergrad. The past 5 weeks have been phenomenal in terms of learning the trade form the point of […]
You know, I’ve gotten into this bad habit. A habit that any filmmaker should do his best to avoid. I judge movies before they have been released. I won’t even see them. Of course, I think most people do this. John Carter aside, it’s probably […]
Just got back from performing improv for hundreds of kids at Eureka College in central Illinois. Tons of fun. Hadn’t had a performance since September. Performing, especially comedy, is a rush like no other. It exhilarating – chemically, emotionally and physically. Sometimes, after a great […]
I have some crazy, somewhat scary (for me) but seemingly boring (for you) news for you all. A few days ago a made a huge leap forward in getting my life in order: I applied for graduation. This may seem pretty small, or at least […]
The Descendants. A movie described by one of my cinematographers as a film that, “gave me faith in film making again.” Megan and I went on a date last night and saw this film by Alexander Payne . . . an alum of Creighton Prep high school […]
So much going on and the stress levels are at an all time high . . . well, not all time. The all time stress level high award goes to the time my “friend” and his parents kicked me out of their house when I […]
I’m leaving for Vegas today. So I don’t have a lot to write. I’m just trying to get out of this city. BUT, Megan shared this with me yesterday. She knows how much I love Wes Anderson. After all, I modeled one of my films […]
Next week Megan an I will be heading to Las Vegas for our friend Natalie’s wedding. It’s going to be at Treasure Island Casino. Arrgh. Nothing says love like walking the plank – that was a euphemism. I hope you plunder his gold and he […]
Megan knows that I’ve been working tirelessly to get my films done. She’s played such a huge part in the process. Still, every film I’ve made at Columbia is in some state of unfisnishedness. It’s a word. Look it up. So, over the past 6 […]
