At the beginning of this year, I had the opportunity to direct a 3 part web series called Murder in Swan Pond. Today is the first day you can watch it online!
Episode 1 is here, starting off the 1 in 3 “Murder Mondays!” series with the next episodes launching in subsequent mondays.
Hope you enjoy this series and I hope I can make more of these soon. It was one of the best experiences I had in filmmaking, collaborating, and testing our talents, budget, and voice.
Hard Case: Murder in Swan Pond: Hard Case: Murder in Swan Pond – Part 1
Murder in Swan Pond is in its last phase of post-production so watch out for its premiere at the end of summer! The music scoring sessions with our wonderful composers, Alexis Marsh and Sam Jones, is always an inspiring and soul-enriching time. Our editor, Joel Townsend, goes out of his way to make sure all the new edits (and there are always new edits) are in line with the utmost patience, our sound designer/mixer, Kim Patrick, is a true warrior who is working all the way from the Bay Area, and our VFX guru, Jefferson Wu, will work his magic to bring some life into the series. We have an amazing post-production team and we’re so excited to premiere it to all of you!
In the meantime, please watch these thank you videos from our cast members:
The last film I produced from USC, called ADÁN, premiered at the Festival De Cannes Court Metrage Short Film Corner and swept the Beyond Borders: Diversity in Cannes Short Film Showcase by winning the Grand Prize, the Jury Award, and the Audience Award.

Frat House Musical has been nominated for a Student Emmy in 2013’s College Television Awards, produced by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation (the Emmy people)! We got nominated in the Series category. The awards show will be on April 25th.
This is so very exciting but none of this would have happened without everyone’s support and hard work. It was a grueling timeline but it pushed everyone to bring their A-game, and we rose to the top. Thank you to all the cast, crew, supporters, fans, “likers” on FB, “viewers” on Mydamnchannel.com, Youtube.com, and for following our journey through SXSW and beyond.
A blurb from the Academy…
“The College Television Awards is a national competition recognizing excellence in college student-produced video, digital and film work. Each year, we receive entries from hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide. As with the Primetime Emmy® Awards, entries are awarded based on excellence in overall production.”
Thank you! Just being nominated is such an honor.
Coming back from Bolivia is always a mind opening, amazing experience. I was there for some research and will hope to be able to show you guys a sneak peak at what I’ll be working on for the next few years, on and off, when I have time, money, resources.
Until then, I leave you this breathtaking picture.
Here are some behind the scenes pictures of Frat House Musical. We had to wait until after we launched to share it so here it is! Will be adding more to that collection.

I’m so lucky to have a project ready to go in 2013. Starting off the new year with a bang! This project, called Murder in Swan Pond, is a three-part web-series written and produced by the talented duo David Ngo and Kevin Del Principe, both USC School of Cinematic Arts Screenwriting MFA students, and directed by me. We have an amazingly talented cast and crew, and even a PUPPET named Sir William. Murder in Swan Pond is best described as a “murder mystery mockumentary” and we can’t wait to show you what we have done!
We totally hit our kickstarter goal so this is actually happening!!!
Check out our kickstarter video and the page for more details about the project and follow us on Facebook. You won’t be disappointed. Until next time!
