Marketing/Distribution Category

I’m going to be taking this website down over the summer for an extensive overhaul. It really doesn’t reflect my interests as a filmmaker any more and its design is dreadfully out of fashion.

Meanwhile, I’ll be documenting another “Walking In Black History” bus tour of major Civil Rights sites in Alabama and Georgia and producing a different hour-long program for WQLN-TV, this time focused even more on the middle- and high-school students making the pilgrimage. I’ll also be following my Memphis musician friend Dan Montgomery and his band, with my old friend and Erie native Tom Arndt on bass, as they perform in New York City and Philadelphia. So I won’t be sitting in my back yard watching the grass grow!

When the site is back up sometime around Labor Day, I’ll be featuring rare footage “from the vault” and some experiments in live streaming from music venues in Erie and Pittsburgh. Troubadour Blues is going to be downsized to a single page, the older blogs will be archived, everything will be streamlined and simplified. Meanwhile, you can visit my digital portfolio to see everything I’ve done in the past 2-3 years.

Hi friends — just a quick post to let everybody know I’m still alive. My friend Abddullah Washington (Bigg Wash) and I just released a 24-minute film, 1000.film, with real people in our hometown talking about their pursuit of excellence. The film is a combination of documentary-style interviews with artistic visuals and creative performances.

The full film will be online shortly; right now, we’re having a series of live screenings at arts centers and neighborhood venues around town. This is by far the best looking film I’ve ever made and I’m extremely proud of it. Here are a couple of trailers to give you a sense of what to expect.

At the beginning of this year, I sat down and wrote out a timeline for myself, with all the deadlines for all the projects I knew about at the time. I’m just going to copy and paste it into this post and make a few editorial modifications. Sort of a public notice to myself that I have a lot of catching up to do after my three hospitalizations in 2016. With luck and perseverance I will wrap up Don’t Give Up Your Day Job (begun in 2009) and complete three other films this year.

But first, check out the film I made with Edinboro art professor and Erie mayoral candidate Lisa Austin. Focusing on the McBride Viaduct on the city’s east side, the film shows how Erie is cut in two by railroad tracks and sewn back together by street-level crossings, over- and underpasses.
