I had an absolute blast last month in San Diego at my very first Comic-Con. After ARTICLES OF WAR screened, I went up on stage along with three key crew members (from left to right: editor Jeff Yorkes, composer Ryan Shore, actor Clay Adams, and Yours Truly) to answer questions from the crowd.
I’ve loved every screening I’ve been to, but this one was extra special.
After the screening, I had three full days to explore the convention hall, listen into panels, and just generally wander around with wide open eyes (the Weta Workshop booth was probably my favorite place to drool over collectibles and props).
I even got to meet my favorite member of the Muppet Orchestra, Rowlf! I gotta find a way to get him a copy of my film…
ARTICLES OF WAR is playing 3 festivals in April – the Atlanta Film Festival, the Nashville Film Festival, and the Newport Beach Film Festival.
Actor Clay Adams and I will be attending the Atlanta event in person and participating in a Q&A after the screening, so if you happen to make it, please say hello. It’s my first visit to Atlanta (not counting the sprawling Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport), and I’m really looking forward to it.

I just got back from the Cleveland International Film Festival, where ARTICLES OF WAR had its Midwestern premiere. The film got a great reception in the Rock ‘n Roll Capital of the World, and the event was a total blast. I could only stay for a couple of days, so my only regret is that I wasn’t able to spend more time in a dark theater sampling the hugely eclectic mix of movies featured in the festival.
Thanks to all the behind-the-scenes programmers and volunteers who made this year’s festival a huge success!
