Sonny Castillo gets busy, 02-style

Love this clip from my friend Sonny, who was one of the thugs menacing my character in Kat Candler's Ninja James and the Beast Boy shoot. Funny stuff!

Ben Taylor on latest Texas Film Scene podcast

Just posted a fresh episode of my Texas Film Scene podcast. This week, I interview produced writer/producer/actor/director/teacher Ben Taylor. I've known Ben for about four years, taken his classes, and only just this weekend learned about his storied and accomplished career. Good stories and good advice from a Hollywood veteran.

Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, or directly from Libsyn.

Comic art on steroids

This guy is living my dream job, back from when I was 12, tracing John Byrne's Wolverine out of the X-Men series, and he's right here in Austin. I am soooo jealous! How cool is this job?!?!

Jason Smith rocks.

ATX is jumpin'

Winter is a traditionally slow time for acting work here in Austin, but I have had about 5 auditions in the last couple of weeks! Three were commercials, true, but it is nice to get the calls.

In the bigger picture, though, Texas is losing the battle for film incentives to other states. The Texas Motion Picture Alliance is trying to change that, lobbying the state legislature to boost incentives to lure production back to Texas, which once swallowed up runaway Hollywood productions left and right.
