I make films. I'm also a nerd.

How is this even a joke?


SFO, guerilla-style (note the gentleman about to question me).


Alejandro Adams on THE GLASS SLIPPER

For HammerToNail: “The Glass Slipper doesn’t drift off non-committally in the de rigueur style. It has a perfect ending, not only tidy but inevitable. And that may be the film’s most remarkable and marketable aspect: its purposefulness, its thrust, its ability to carry us to a destination. The final scene is executed in a nihilistic deadpan, and we’re left to muse that life can be profoundly tentative, even hopeless. And gosh that sure is funny.”

A stupid song I recorded using Garageband for iPad.

Veronika Ferdman reviews THE GLASS SLIPPER

For Slant Magazine:

The Glass Slipper, set in Palo Alto, [is] an anti-fairy tale of sorts, with no the-shoe-fits-so-all’s-perfect happy end—and no Cinderella. The sometime handheld, natural light aesthetic serves the material well; there’s no reason to glamorize and play dress up when the world’s filled with rotten, poison apples.

Super imposition.
