Of Course You Do (2014)
I have a hard time waiting a whole week between episodes of You’re The Worst.
Pretty sweet CREW PHOTO from The Impossible Project.
Why don’t we always take crew photos at every shoot? It’d be a cool habit to get into.
This was one of those NEW YORK TELEVISION FESTIVAL things I was so excited about. Created with Delbert Shoopman. Upon our NYTVF rejection, we opted to submit to Channel 101, and it was a real treat to watch this thing play for that audience. Glad people dug it, but glad they didn’t dig it enough to cancel Car-Jumper. Haha.
This month’s shows are live on Channel101.com!! Another big shakeup this month, as The Sign Spinner and Secrets & Science enter primetime, while we bid a sad farewell to High Stakes and Live Free, Eat Fresh. Thanks for a great month - see you in September!!
Sheesh! Held on by a thread this month. Car-Jumper be slipping!
Check out the new shows, including The Impossible Project, a gameshow I made with Del Shoopman starring Brad Gage.
Hey, new life for THE IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT - a game show pilot hosted by Brad Gage which will premiere at Channel 101 this Saturday. Created with best buddy Del Shoopman, this was a fun project we threw together for the New York Television Festival. Pretty happy an audience will get to see it.
Car-Jumper - Episode #20
See it this weekend at Channel 101
She said, “You is funny”
I said, “You are funny”
She said, “Thank you”
and I said, “Nevermind”
She rolled her eyes
Her beautiful eyes
"No one handles the unexpected like John Thackery…"
"It’s where I live."
And, of course, The Knick is great.
THROWBACK THURSDAY: “The Continuing Adventures of Hans Winkerbean - Part 1” (2005)
Hah, this is a weird one. This was the first chapter of what was going to be a 50-part collaborative movie done in campfire-story fashion. Shot in LA in the summer of 2005 (I was here for a summer internship) before my last year of college. Scripted by my playwright buddy Randy Colburn and shot with Tim Marklevitz and Delbert Shoopman.
The idea was to let each filmmaker pick up where the previous one left off and tell the next part however they wanted. (Kind of a precursor to the "Our Remake" projects) Because there was no budget or deadline, there were massive 6-month gaps between each piece, and I think somewhere around Part 3 or 4 I got sick of how the project was going and stopped caring about it. A classic failure.
For the completist in me:
Also cute to mention, Hans and his wardrobe color scheme was supposed to be based on the German stock character Hanswurst because I was a theater minor in college and thought that was really clever.
Justin & Erik’s new WIRED show is my new favorite web show. Beautifully photographed destruction.

THROWBACK: The Miracals - “Pretend” (2012)
Maaaaaan I still dig this music video we did for these dudes in 2012. I’d like to make more music videos but when I look at these things I mostly remember how much work they are. I dunno. I gotta get back in that music video game.
Also check it out, it’s Co-Jumper Teresa Decher back before she was a Co-Jumper.
