Below you can check out a short film from Director Joe Miale. I got to work with Joe when I first moved to LA on this music video, and later got to help him out with the production of this short promo piece. It was the first time I had ever been on set with a lot of green screen, but this was the result, and I think its the business, check it out!
Here's a little video I finally completed, it was shot a few weeks ago at the Major League Gaming convention in Anaheim, CA. My little brother happens to be extremely good at a game called Starcraft 2, a real-time strategy game put out by Blizzard, and he was playing it competitively at the convention, along with Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops. It was a really fun, exhausting experience (the first day we stayed up watching him play till 2am in the morning) and here is the video chronicling our experience, enjoy.

And what an end it was...
I would first off like to thank everyone who came out. I know I'm going to miss people, and I apologize in advance, but thank you Kyle Garret, John Witmer, Matt Todd, Bionic Dave, Kyle Higgins, Josh Dysart, Mark Sable, Pierre, Matt Gagnon, Andy Kouhri, FELIPE SMITH!!! the Syndrome guys Dan and RJ (thanks for the handsome prizes fellas), Tony, Josh Fialkov, my roommate Matt for driving me around that night, my partner in crime Nick Gagnon for keeping the one's and two's going, Amy and her friend from House of Secrets, Tom Pinchuk, Marz Richards, Shane and Chris Houghton, Ian Brill, my boys Mr. Greg Stutzie and Zach Durant, Mel Caylo (for making another great edition of the MEL-Cast), Gaston and Fransisco for letting us have the space on a Friday night (AND for our many weeks of recording anywhere we could in Meltdown Comics), and all you lovely people who I met and briefly talked with but can't remember your names because I'm terrible, plus everyone else. Thank you brave souls who were willing to call in and be heard, many of the names I've already mentioned but let me add Armless Not Harmless, Shawn Marshall, Neil Kapit, Nathan Budde, and Reilly Brown - you guys are awesome for letting it ring out!
Oh, and thanks to Zach behind the bar for setup help and keeping everyone lubricated all night. Mucho mucho.
The show went better than I could of ever hoped, the room was bursting to the brim with positive energy. I was a little bit dejected because team lead Mr. Rosa was down for the count with a terrible migraine that had him on the couch in the break room vomiting into a trash can minutes before the show started. The Hammer showed what he was made of by overcoming this obstacle and driving the show like a champ, and we weren't expecting Chris to be there due to his condition. Mark Sable had just finished talking up his new book GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES and was lamenting the fact that Chris wasn't there, when...
We love you, from the bottom of our collective heart - we love you and everything you have meant to the show.
Here's to hoping our inane commentary and scandalous selections reach you all in the ether once again very soon.
- THE BREW!!!
P.S. Thank you Mark Miller for making this all possible.

Here's a glimpse of Nick cutting the trailer for Love Snail at our edit suite, and we also get to see the different schedules people keep. Normal people work during the day, and sleep at night. NOTE: Normal people suck.
