The Royal Road Premiering at 2015 Sundance Film Festival



I'm so thrilled that my new film, The Royal Road is finally complete and set to debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January. I'm extremely grateful to the hundreds of people who have supported me and the project financially, creatively and emotionally over these past few years! The Royal Road is a lyrical feature-length cinematic essay set against a contemplative backdrop of 16mm urban California landscapes. The film offers up a primer on the Spanish colonization of California and the Mexican American War alongside intimate reflections on nostalgia, the pursuit of unavailable women, butch identity and Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. Featuring a voiceover cameo by Tony Kushner. Please check out the short teaser above and visit the film's official website at RoyalRoadMovie.com for more info or just like, follow, etc. on social media to stay updated!

The Royal Road — The journey ahead


It's July 2014 and time to admit that my days of regular blogging on this page are over. If you're reading this (and I hope you are) please come visit my Facebook or Twitter accounts. Or click to learn more about the project that will be consuming the next year or so of my life, my new film The Royal Road (you can also follow the film on Facebook and Twitter).

On that note, I'm thrilled to announce that I have just started picture edit on The Royal Road.  Thanks to all of my friends and supporters for helping me get this far. I hope to be finished by the end of the year and look forward to an early 2015 world premiere. I do still need to raise more funds for finishing — tax-deductible contributions can be made via my fiscal-sponsor, the San Francisco Film Society by clicking right here: http://www.sffs.org/filmmaker360/project-development/the-royal-road.
