Office Ninja Available on iTunes!

Office Ninja, he’s gonna getcha!

The award-winning comedy OFFICE NINJA starring Jade Carter, Jose Rosete, Francois Chau, Jessica Mills, Robb Padgett and Todd Johnson released on iTunes this week!  I had the pleasure of working on this feature film as a 1st Assistant Director and after budding my nose in… an Associate Producer. We had a great cast and a lot of fun making this film so check it out! 

‘Office Ninja’ begins with Tomas (CARTER), a disenchanted office worker on the verge of a dream promotion. For Tomas and his coworkers– goofball Raheem (ROSETE), newbie Jessica (MILLS), king of douchebags Jett (PADGETT), and their incompetent boss Daryl (JOHNSON) — each day seems to blend into the next. But a dark change is coming. After finding out that the office jerk Jett has stolen his work as well as his coveted promotion, Tomas swears vengeance and follows the ways of the ninja in his quest to regain his honor and find the evidence that will end Jett’s reign of office tyranny. But of course, since he’s not an “actual” ninja, his plans for swift justice may not go quite as smoothly as he planned.

‘Office Ninja’ features an ensemble cast with Jade Carter (JAG, House), Jose Rosete (Age of Dinosaurs), Francois Chau (Lost), Jessica Mills (Awkward Embraces), Robb Padgett (Vampire Zombie Werewolf) and Todd Johnson (Mortal Kombat: Rebirth).

Producing Juliet: Episodes 1- 4 Now Up!

You can now watch the current four episodes of Producing Juliet!  Here’s episode 4, ‘The Play’s The Thing’ Part 2.  To see the show from the beginning click here.

When Rebecca meets kindred spirit Juliet, a playwright struggling to get her sophomore effort produced, Rebecca’s tenuous and open relationship with her alluring yet distant actress girlfriend becomes clear. Rebecca finds a new focus and decides to leave her corporate life behind to produce Juliet’s new play. And although Juliet is looking to create some distance of her own from an openly gay actor who can’t walk away from her, Juliet’s new partnership with Rebecca is about to put everyone’s drama center stage.

Made in New York, Producing Juliet is the latest original series from award winning writer and director, Tina Cesa Ward, who brought us the critically acclaimed Anyone But Me and Good People in Love. The cast features award winning actress Rachael Hip-Flores alongside a raft of brand new young talent on the web. The production team includes producers Allison Vanore (Anyone But MeCost of CapitalSOLO: The Series) and Rochelle Dancel (B.J. Fletcher: Private Eye).

Love in the Time of Monsters back in Crescent City

After spending close to a month up in the redwood forest of Del Norte county and nearby Crescent City in May of 2012, the cast (Doug Jones, Jeff Turner) and filmmakers of Love in the Time of Monsters returned with a finished film the weekend of September 7, 2013.  Thrilled to have the film back in town, locals Jenny Young and other cast and crew threw down the red carpet, invited the entire city, and hosted an after party.  We had 300 people show up for the screening which played in three theatres that night and the reaction was nothing short of amazing.  To read more about the reaction from Crescent City you can catch the latest article from the Triplicate here:
