2023 by-by,”Hello,” 2024!

Another trying year in the life of the nation and world comes haltingly to a close and another begins, perhaps before we’re ready! While one’s heart breaks for those suffering under the weight of national, religious, and sectarian conflicts of all kinds, we each fortify one another by continuing creative work, renewing the springs from which we find communal hope and courage. I always hope my own work contributes to such continual renewal.

By way of update (reiterating earlier news):

Our film, ANOTHER LIFE, an inspirational biopic about a man born deaf who builds two, successful careers as funeral Director and stand-up comedian, is currently in post-production. The film is directed by Dean Jones, of Atlantic & Pacific Studios, and stars Kevin Sorbo, Chris Mulkey, John Boyd West, and myself. It looks great, our money is on the screen, and fingers crossed we’ll be in theaters in 2024.

In partnership with Uprising Global, we are in the final lap of developing a tight little spy thriller by a successful, well-known playwright, and are aiming for production in September, 2024, for a budget of $2-5m. We’ve been developing the script over a year or so, honing the idea and aligning resources for it. I’m thrilled with our progress and can’t wait to report more, as we get closer to filming.

In April, I pop down to Columbus, GA, to star in the Springer Opera House production of Tracy Letts’ THE MINUTES (details in the feed below), and anticipate a few friends joining us in the audience for what I think will transpire to be a great time, and special production.

On a personal note: after a fourteen year absence from skiing, I’ve returned to the hill–thanks to an extraordinarily affordable, ‘midweek’, season pass, and great deal on a full season ski rental–and am in the market, with my longstanding girlfriend, for a home in upstate New York. Who knows if we’ll be able to afford it, but we’re looking!
