Angry dad

There's a commercial starting in New York on March 6th that will feature me as an abusive dad. I did the voiceover with a young actor as my "victim"

It's weird to dig down and find an angry character, one so angry that it would hurt a little girl. I also used a phone book to amp up the sfx of the spot as I slammed it down on a table.

It is a commercial that's going to get some notice as it's protesting NY budget cuts that could effect child services.

I'll get it posted once it's up and on air.

Winner of a Telly Award!

I just found out that one of the Educational Documentaries that I worked on has won a bronze in the 2010 Telly Awards!

"Riders Mills Schoolhouse" a short film on the history of rural schools edited by Steve Schwarz of Sound Seller productions and voice by ME!

Roll out the red carpet, alert the paparazzi, I am ready for my closeup!

Reason to have a good website

I recently did an on-camera commercial, the producer wanted to hear what I sounded like... fortunately I was able to direct them to my website which has several examples of my work.

That for me was so much better than being put on the spot while on the cell phone.

Now to get those video clips done. Enough goofin' around already!

Ok, I need a clone!

To me it's an early sign of the economy on an upswing. Let me give you an example. A textbook project that I was teased about two years ago has been given the greenlight. Our A Capella group is booking more and more gigs, I landed a small film role in an independent film and just did another on camera commercial yesterday afternoon in Troy NY.

The A Capella group performed Friday and Saturday, the film shoot was Sunday and the commercial was Monday.

What is going on that people are spending money?! I like it, I like it alot!

Lets see what today brings!
