The Hidden Life of the Burrowing Owl @ Con

It has been an exciting year. My film "The Hidden Life of the Burrowing Owl" has been touring all over the world these last 16 months. After 30 film festivals, 3 traveling shows, and 14 different countries it has finally made its way to Comic Con. You have two chances to see it on a big screen this Con.

See it Friday in Room 26AB at 4:55 during the Comic Con Independent Film Festival.


You can catch it during Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation on Friday night from 10:00-12:00 in Room 6BCF.

See you at Con!

Wednesday Night

So I was out late on Wednesday night walking my dog Riley. It has been getting super foggy at night so I have started bringing my Mag light with me. In the fields the fog gets so thick that the flash light beam turns into some kind of lightsaber. It is pretty fun until you decide to pretend to cut down a near by tree and get the crap scared out of you by a possum.
P.S. My dog is a complete waste....one look at the possum and he actually runs away leaving me and nine thousand needle teeth alone in the dark. Awesome.
