The Girl With The Glasses In Those Rhapsody Commercials? Her Name Is Meghan Miller!

Meghan Miller becomes Rhapsody's latest spokesperson!

Whenever an actor you know gets some real exposure, it's always pretty damn cool.  Kevin and I make it a hobby as directors to keep a close eye on the careers of every actor that's been in one of our films.  If they pop up on a TV show, we DVR it.  If they're in someone's music video, we track it down.  If they land a role in a movie, we're pulling for it to do well. 

In Meghan Miller's case, what started as her casually telling us that she had flown down to Austin one weekend to shoot a few commercials for Rhapsody, evolved into much more.   I remember being a little bummed at the time, because while Rhapsody is swell and all, Meghan was so tired upon returning from the airport, that she had to bail out of a small project we were planning to shoot with her the next day.  But several months later, I think I see the big picture here, and realize just how important that little trip to Austin was for Meghan.  Because currently I can't turn on my TV without seeing another one of these 'Desmond & Molly' commercials Meghan stars in with fellow actor Branden Hayward.  Then I was on a website one day and, sitting perched in the top right corner, was the above banner.  Now look at that image and tell me Meghan Miller isn't Rhapsody's new spokesperson!&nbsp » Read more

How To Make A Movie In A Week - Part 1

Identical Dead Sisters - 'How To Make A Film In 1 Week'

During the second half of the summer of 2008, I was home visiting family in NY, as I'm accustomed to do.  I was there to celebrate birthdays, go on vacations, and just bum around the pool.  But I began to realize that there was something else I could and probably should have been doing as well: making a film!  Unfortunately this idea only popped into my head with about a week left before my flight back to LA.  

Now, I know what you're saying.  "Just make a film?  Really, Dennis, it's just that easy?  Suuuure."  Your next thought may be, "And in one week?  Now you're just speaking that white man's voodoo."  Well, let me clarify a little:  It was going to be a short film.  Obviously.  (don't you feel stupid now?).  And yes, you CAN make a film in a week.

See, this first blog of mine is going to be about a  lot more then just how we made 'Identical Dead Sisters' in one week.  It's going to be about that intangible drive we call ambition and how it can consume you sometimes and blind you to how easy it is to just get - shit- done.

So there we were.  Kevin and I, sitting at my laptop.  Gestating ideas.  Something you learn, being a writer/director, is that you can't always just write anything down on the page.  The man dove through the plate glass window, stumbling into a roll.

This might be a fun scene to shoot, but it immediately raises the following concerns:&nbsp » Read more
