AWP 2013 — Boston

Usually, this is where I would regale you with tales of torporific panels led by respected authors, new writerly techniques learned, rockstar-studded reading events, and sweaty hands shook. This recap will contain none of those. Okay, very few of those. AWP is a yearly conference for writers, publishers, and writing programs. I’ve written about it […]

Books and Booze interview

Combining two of my favorite things into one of my favorite new podcasts. Sensing that some of their former guests (though entertaining and knowledgeable) had been far too sober given its namesake, for my appearance this week, I took it upon myself to lower my inhibitions, articulation, grammatical skill, and possibly good judgment by way […]

AWP 2012 – Chicago

Getting excited now. Just two short weeks until The Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference in Chi-town! (I assure you, it’s much livelier than it sounds.) My first AWP was Denver, now two years in the rearview, and I had a memorable time, even if no photographic evidence exists to confirm this. Sure, there […]

Northwest Alumni feature

The fall issue of Northwest, the alumni magazine of my alma mater Northwest Missouri State University (where I earned my degree in Mass Communication in 1995) contains a short feature on yours truly. Click the article to enlarge, or the cover to browse the entire Issuu via NWMSU’s site.

Reel Time

Time for a new gig. Like everybody else. Been thinking about going freelance (shooter mostly, maybe cutter). Never needed to make a demo reel before. Any ideas on what to include? Only your best work. Quality is far more important than length; it’s not a career retrospective. If there’s a type of project you’re not […]

Forkin’ Screen

Forkin’ Screen

My long-awaited outing to see Synecdoche, New York (review here), was a unique experience. AMC Theaters is headquartered in my town, and they often pilot new initiatives at my local flagship complex. Their latest endeavor is called Fork & Screen, and in a changing market that finds more folks staying home to watch movies, it […]

Cineplexity

Tickets to off-Broadway productions cost more than those of regional theater (at the same venue). New England Patriots seats will set you back more than Buffalo Bills seats (for the same matchup, even). If you want to ride the Vominator at the local theme park, you’ll have to dig a little deeper into your pockets. […]

No Scribes, No Problem

So, Variety says that Leno is still easily topping Letterman in the ratings, despite having no WGA staffers and relying on non-SAG guests and/or C-list scabs. And that reality shows (replacements or not) continue to outperform their scripted counterparts in prime time at around 30% of the cost. This is disturbing on so many levels, […]

No Habla Técnico

As a multimedia producer, I constantly find myself playing the role of interpreter between the writers, designers and video folks in my company, and the technical people (IT, programmers, engineers). As such, I frequently encounter written communication that one group finds confusing to the other. Do you have any general tips and tricks for translating […]

Perjiarism

She stole a piece of him. Now he wants it back. That’s the tagline to what is now my least-favorite movie, based on one of my all-time favorite novels. When you understand that the woman who “wrote” and directed it thieved it literally scene-for-scene from a man’s ten-years-published novel, you’ll appreciate its irony. I wonder […]
