25 New Faces of Independent Film

Along with The West Side co-director Zachary Lieberman, I'm one of Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film. Actually, collectively the two of us are one Face out of the 25; I'd like to think I'm the Harvey Dent side of the Two-Face.

Also see the press release and list of alumni.

I'm not sure when I started reading Filmmaker; in high school I subscribed to the similarly-themed The Independent, but at some point made the switch to Filmmaker. By the time I was out of college, I was eyeing the annual New Faces filmmakers with a touch of envy, wondering how I could transition from North Carolina-based corporate videography to New York-based narrative filmmaking.

The answer, I'm sure, is somewhere in here.

Thanks to Scott Macaulay for selecting us (and for writing a very complimentary profile) and to Richard Koek for taking a photo befitting of an Urban Western.

great, great work man. you and zachary are really, really doing it. here's to talent being realized (peter gabriel says it better than me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0FBi5Rv1ho. oh, shit - is peter gabriel ironically hip yet? if not, uh, consider yourself the winner of the pabst blue ribbon?)

seriously, though, congratulations for all you've accomplished and for, again, really, really doing it. it's a great show and it's really b.a. that you haven't sold out like so many of the creatively inclined we used to know.

one of these days we should hop on one of the myriad of public transportation options between us and have a tiny-carbon-footprinted reunion.
