I had a great time talking with the Atlanta Film Chat podcast this week! We had a really fun conversation talking about Uncommon Law, writing, the struggles of making a film without a budget, my love for romantic comedies & Japanese RPGs, and more. Please download & give it a listen!
When you think of an “indie film” you don’t typically think of a romantic comedy. The genre gets derided as being formulaic and unimaginative. However, filmmakers like this week’s guest Brian Work disagree and only want to make the films they want to make.
Check this out! At last night’s show, Kicking the Seat Podcast interviewed the cast & crew of my play, Once Upon A Rom Com: The Bill Pullman Story. The interview starts at about 25 minutes in; I talk about the play and my thoughts on romantic comedies in general. It was a really fun interview, so please give it a listen!
Received a great surprise tonight at Once Upon a Rom Com: The Bill Pullman Story: Flowers from Bill Pullman himself! I’d like to send a huge thank you to Bill, and to the entire cast and crew for doing such an outstanding job on this show.
It’s official! Brian’s play, “Once Upon a Rom Com: The Bill Pullman Story,” is opening on September 5, 2012 at Gorilla Tango Theatre in Chicago! The play, which will run on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm through October 31, will be produced by Katie Johnston-Smith as a part of Gorilla Tango’s parody play series and will be directed by Neal Fischer.
After making a career out of playing the “other guy” in numerous nineties romantic comedies, American actor extraordinaire Bill Pullman has sunk into a deep depression, believing he will never find true love. It will take the help of a fairy godfather in the form of the one and only Jeff Goldblum to pull him back together and save the girl of his dreams from a devious and wicked French lover. This is a real man’s fairy tale for the hopeless romantic in all of us!
Brian has completed principal photography on his feature film, Uncommon Law, and is now in post-production editing the movie. He has also moved to Chicago, where he is currently taking improv at iO and writing a pair of plays for Gorilla Tango Theatre.
