This weekend I will be in New York for the East Coast Fangoria Weekend of Horrors (taking place Friday - Sunday) at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. We'll be promoting WALKING DISTANCE all weekend, and maybe even talking about some of our upcoming projects (cough...IMAGO...cough cough).

First off, I will be on FANGORIA radio this Friday night. The show starts at 10 PM EST. You can tune in on Sirius 108/XM 139. For those that don't know, the show is hosted by Dee (Twisted Sister) Snider, and the lovely Debbie Rochon (who also stars in WALKING DISTANCE). Not sure what time I'll be on, but you should listen to the whole show anyway, as they're always great. Radio show info is right here.

Next up, at 4:30 pm on Saturday, is our WALKING DISTANCE panel at the show. Debbie will be joining me on the panel as well as actress Natali Jones. We'll also be showing a new clip from the movie.

Sunday I'll just be hanging out at the convention being a dork. Some things never change. You can get info on the convention and guests at

Lastly, DISTANCE stars Adrienne King and Reggie Bannister will be at Seattle Crypticon this weekend as well, so don't feel slighted, Left-Coasters. Drop by their tables and check out what they have going on. Info at

So...if you're on the East Coast or have the opportunity to tune in to the radio show on Friday, please check us out! And if you're in Seattle, check out Adrienne and Reg! And, as always, thanks for all the support. Look for more WALKING DISTANCE and IMAGO-related happenings in the coming weeks.

Like a lot of folks lately, I've been a bit neglectful of my blogging duties. If you really want to keep up on my ramblings, I suggest you keep an eye toward my personal blog, or my Upstart Filmworks blog. If you're here, then you're following directions. Applause. I'm trying to streamline things and put everything in one of those two places from here on out. I'm sure I'll still pop in here and there.

So, for the last couple months I've been slowly putting the pieces together for the next Upstart Filmworks project. I won't be directing this one, but I'm producer and co-writer. The picture is called Imago, and Chris Warren is going to be the captain of the ship this go round. Today, Fangoria put up our first cast announcement, and it's a doozy. Lisa "Alice Johnson from Nightmare 4 and 5" Wilcox has joined the cast of Imago, and I'm freaking ecstatic. That should come as no real surprise to anyone that's known me for any length of time. Melanie and I had the pleasure of having lunch with Lisa a while back, and she's one of the coolest ladies on the planet. I can't wait to work with her. We also have a ton of Walking Distance people returning both in front of and behind the camera, so I'm excited about that as well. I know things will run smoothly and look great...and as a producer, that's all I can really ask for. Well, that and more money. HA! If you want to keep up on Imago, you can add the MySpace page here, or add the Facebook page here.

As for Walking Distance, we are in the very late stages of post production. CG and color timing are being worked on, sound design is starting soon, and Dwayne and I have begun the scoring process. The full website is also about to go live over East Coasters can catch us at the upcoming NYC Fangoria Weekend of Horrors, where Natali Jones, Shannon Lark, Debbie Rochon and myself will be on a Walking Distance panel to rap a little about the flick. We should actually rap. Like Whodini in Nightmare 5. At any rate, I can't promise the spitting of hot fire, but I'm sure we'll have a clip or something.

So, keep your eye on all those sites and blogs for updates throughout the next few months. Lots will be happening. LOTS. Stay tuned.
