In the Great American Indian novel, when it is finally written,
all of the white people will be Indians and all of the Indians will be ghosts.

On Set! - Diana


On Sunday afternoon, I participated in Daryl Denner's latest short film, "Diana."  

I've known and worked with Daryl for several years.  

Daryl played Mr. Big in the first season of Places Please.  I've also acted in Daryl's plays and some of his other short films.

On Set! Bad Date - The Bar



On Sunday morning I participated in a shoot for a webseries pilot: "Bad Date - The Bar."  

The pilot was for the New York Television Festival and MSN short form storytellers challange.  

The contest states: 

MSN has partnered with the NYTVF to discover trailblazing storytellers with a talent for delivering big shows in small packages. The MSN “Short-Form Storytellers Challenge” guarantees at least one outstanding producer a $75,000 production budget to re-imagine the potential for dynamic series as told in micro-episodic form. For content consumers on the web, short-form is the art form and the competition is specifically seeking series that are developed and created to be consumed in episodes of two minutes or less.

My friend Kristen Lucas partnered up with director Fernando Cuestas to enter a pilot.
