“TACTICAL GIRLS” An Absurd Combat/Comedy

Diane And Dougy

Over the past two years, I’ve been writing one of the funniest, wackiest, most absurd scripts I’ve ever worked on, and I’ve been working on it with two incredible co-writers: Melissa D’Agostino & Diana Bentley.

And this summer, we’re finally putting this series on the screen.

Starring My Big Fat Greek Wedding‘s incomparable Maria Vacratsis, Orphan Black‘s hilarious Kristian Bruun, the spectacularly funny Ted Dykstra, and Nicole Stamp, along with the multi-talented Melissa D’Agostino and Diana Bentley, “Tactical Girls” is the story of three women who can’t stand the horrendous boss of the trucking company they work at, and so to vent their frustrations they go on tactical missions together. But one night, the new recruit takes things too far, and the more they try to fix the situation, the deeper they dig themselves into it.

Man of Steel Song Wins at Dragon Con!

WINNER Silver Dragon at 2013’s DragonCon Film Festival and Official Selection at LabCab Fest 2013!

“With Marvel showing up DC at the box office, Man of Steel better make lots of money if the other members of the Justice League stand a chance of having their shot on the big screen – and the entire JLA has come out to lament the dismal future of their careers.”

A fun music video I directed that has screened and won at some exciting festivals around the world, we poke fun at Warner Brothers for dropping the ball on some of the most iconic characters in comics, all to the tune of the Crash Test Dummies’ “Superman’s Song”.

I hope you dig it!

Wolverine Vs. Gladiator in Les Miserables

“Hugh Jackman is Wolverine is Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe is Gladiator is Javert in the action-movie version of “The Confrontation” from the musical “Les Miserables”!”

When I heard the casting for the Les Mis film, I couldn’t help but imagine these two in a battle… and so this happened when Melissa D’Agostino and Adam Lazarus helped me bring it into the real world for everyone to see!

How’d we do it? Here’s a peek:

Ca$hi: 7 Grains… Lying to You

Sometimes I get political. In the spring of 2012, investigations revealed that Kellogg was using GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in some of the ‘natural’ products they sell under the brand name of Kashi.*

Since the FDA does not regulate the word ‘natural’ in the way it does the word ‘organic’, Kellogg’s claim of Kashi being ‘natural’ is not illegal.

And a “Yes” vote on Prop 37 would make this more than unethical, it would make it illegal.
