DAMN!  this has been one hellava week.

starting sunday at soundwave, i got to enjoy the musical stylings of queens of the stone age, primus, devildriver, the bronx, monster magnet and slash.

monday, i joined the crew for the upcoming horror feature film, REDD INC.  i’ll be directing the special features for the web, DVD and blue ray.

this film is going to rock.  hard.  check out the website for all the info…

we’ll be bleeding viral updates over the course of the production…  shooting commences tomorrow…

monday night, i walked to my local venue and watched PRIMUS in all their maddening glory…

tuesday, we visiting M.E.G. – the makeup effects groups behind the glorious splatter of REDD INC.

the shop was mind-blowing and their work is incredible.  i cannot wait for them to be unleashed onset.

wednesday was my birthday.  that night i saw my favorite band, queens of the stone age, destroy the enmore theatre, surrounded by my bestest buds.

today i spent another day at M.E.G. gathering further material for the special features…

the effects being created for the film are second-to-none awesome.  as a certified gore-hound and horror fanatic since the 80s, i am immensely proud to be a small part of this film…

let the blood flow…

This weekend, we are shooting a short mockumentary for Tropfest, entitled, “Last Minutes with the Stack.”

I’m also attending a Guns n’ Roses concert, but that is neither here nor there.

The mocko – co-written and co-directed by Corey Farrell and myself stars James Rappell and is a hybrid of actual events and a short film called, “Last Minutes with Oden.”

If you haven’t seen that film –

But be warned…  If you’ve ever loved a pet before…  You will cry.

Our film should be complete in one month to meet the Tropfest deadline of the 6th of January.

My good mate and cinematographer extraordinaire, Glenn Hanns recently spent a day with Sarah McLeod ( The Superjesus ), in her home studio and at rehearsal with her band.  He documented the day on his Canon 5D Mk2 and I have cut the footage into the new video clip for the track “Dancing in the Dark,” off her soon-to-be-released album.

You can check it out here –
