Don Swaynos-650x250If you like hearing me talk- you’re in luck! I was recently featured on two podcasts! I sat down with Mike G for Show de Vie, where we discussed work, music, movies, and whisky. I was also part of a really fun live recording of the pop culture podcast These Things Matter at the Denver Film Festival (which I was attending with Yen Tan’s The Outfit).

outfest-1250I’m happy to announce that two films I worked on will be screening at this year’s Outfest Los Angeles. Yen Tan’s The Outfit (which I co-wrote and edited) screens July 10th and 14th at the DGA and Brad Besser’s Beaver Trilogy Part IV (which I produced) screens July 16th at the RedCat. I’m really proud of both films and thrilled they’re screening together at such a prestigous festival.

High Profits Flag Poster650250

Jeannette Catsoulis, movie critic for the New York Times recommends filling that “Mad Men-shaped hole in your Sunday-night viewing” with High Profits. “Candid and surprisingly clearheaded, this riveting look at frontier entrepreneurship — and millennial creativity — proves that opening a recreational pot dispensary isn’t the doddle you would think.” CNN is airing a marathon of the first five episodes starting this Sunday at 10pm ET/7pm PT.

I co-wrote (with Yen) and edited the horror comedy which stars AJ Bowen (You’re Next, The Sacrament) as a Republican Congressman who becomes the subject of some unwanted rumors after wearing the wrong outfit to a fund-raiser. The film screens this week at the Maryland Film Festival and next month at deadCENTER (along with John Bryant’s award-winning The Samaritans, which I also cut). We’ll be announcing more screenings soon so please like the film’s Facebook page for updates. Continue reading
