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

I said, “You are funny”
She said, “Thank you”
and I said, “Nevermind”

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.
Oh goodness thank you. Play this on a loop when I’m feeling down.
KDAV - “Radio For Idiots” - 08.14.2014
In which I make a new one of these and alienate my audience by calling anyone listening idiots the whole time.

Central City Television Festival - COMING SOON
Hey everybody, keep a look out for my *OFFICIAL REJECTION* from the New York Television Festival. Haha I make good decisions. I decided to make a spec pilot for the NYTVF about a television festival and, of course, it was rejected.
Maybe they couldn’t handle our cutting satire, turning television festivals on their heads. Maybe they were AFRAID it was TOO REAL & TOO RAW for their festival. Perhaps they realized printing the words "Central City Television Festival" in their program would confuse people. Or, of course, maybe it’s simply not as good as the 62 other pilots they accepted.
In either case, be on the look out for…
CENTRAL CITY TELEVISION FESTIVAL:
THE PILOT NEW YORK TELEVISION FESTIVAL DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE.
Haha. I’ll drop it online in the next couple days.
