A little 30th Anniversary of the Running Man... #Regent #AlamoDraftHouse #LaLaLand

Last minute news for my Arizona friends and family: If you're available and want to see my short film, "Bound For Greatness," it's going to screen this Saturday at noon in Chandler at the Chandler International Film Festival. I just got word that they decided to screen it. I want to come in, but it's such late notice, I don't think I can make it. Regardless, here's the info:

The festival takes place at Soho63
63 E Boston St, Chandler, AZ 85225

The screening starts at 12pm, this Saturday, January 14th in the "Tale of Dramas" section on the Plaza screen.

Tickets: $15 for this block of films. Tickets can be purchased here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2726202

Here is the link for the festival for more info: https://www.chandlerfilmfestival.com/ticket

Originally, the festival told me that they were just screening feature films, but then they asked me a few days ago to send them my film so they could open up a screening for several Shorts. Don't feel obligated to go, but I let those know who have been wanting to see it. I'm not sure where it will land in the 3 hour block of short films, so I hope there are some enjoyable shorts to watch in this block of films.

Please let me know if you think you might attend and let me know if any of you have questions. Thank you all for your support!

"Bound for Greatness" won 5 awards at Austin's Big As Texas Film Festival! Amazing and so grateful!!! Congratulations to my cast and crew who worked so hard on the short film. It's amazing to me that we shot a 30 minute short in two days, but that's because I was able to pull together such a fantastic team! Thank you for the mentors, friends, and family that guided me through this and still so blessed that this short keeps winning awards and continues to travel around the world!!! Thank you to Kevin Machate and Big As Texas Film Festival too. Very honored!

Another inspiring evening... 16 years ago, in my hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona, I went to the Scottsdale International Film Festival and watched "You Can Count On Me" (starring Laura Linney and Mark Ruffalo) directed by one of my favorite writer/directors, Kenneth Lonergan. He spoke to me after the film and instilled inspiration, confirming I should enter film school. 16 years later, after we first met, I went to see his latest film, "Manchester by the Sea." In my opinion, it's phenomenal! Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler, and Lucas Hedges are wonderful to watch. I got an inspirational bookend by being able to speak to him again and thank him for inspiring me all those years ago. As I embark in directing my first feature film, he gave me some good directing advice and we spoke of filmmaking. Leonard Maltin, who moderated the event tonight, even gave me additional directing advice he's heard from other directors: "Wear Sensible Shoes." How great it is to be able to speak to people I admire! #Lucky #Inspiring #ManchesterByTheSea #KennethLonergan #LeonardMaltin #IndependentFilmmaker #AwardsSeason

I had the pleasure today of meeting Ang Lee and seeing his new movie, "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" in 120 frames per second 3D, as he intended it to be seen. He was gracious with his time and I had a nice conversation with him, as he offered me advice on directing. This movie is very timely and leads me to say, Thank you, to our Veterans. 🇺🇸 #VeteransDay #AngLee #HFRCinema #BillyLynn #120FPS

After a whirlwind trip to Paris, Berlin, Wales, and London... I'm already back in the U.S. and screened at the Studio City Film Festival today. Now time for a quick nap and off to the American Film Market tomorrow. #indiefilmmaker #BoundForGreatness #StudioCityFilmFestival #AFM2016
