A still from the finished version of 20 Matches

“20 Matches” all finished

As of September 17, 2015, less than two months after we shot it, 20 Matches is done. Music (by Chris Wirsig) is done. Editing (by Dustin Frost) is done. Credits (by William Lebeda) are done. Everything is done! Now comes the grueling part: entering it into festivals. Thankfully, my Indiegogo backers were so generous that I have enough money in the till to submit to 17-18 major festivals before the film's budget officially runs dry. I've already submitted to five of the biggest ones; if there is any good news to report, I will, of course, share it here. But regardless of whether I get accepted anywhere, I am proud of this film. I think it's creepy, moody, beautiful, and thought-provoking.

One of these days, if I can figure it out, I'll create a separate page for 20 Matches on this website, since I promised my Indiegogo backers that I would thank them all on such a page. Until then, I do have a trailer on my short films page. Please take a look. (The actual film won't be posted publicly online for at least another year; I want to keep it under wraps while I submit it to festivals, though my backers will soon get to view it privately.)

Everything else is going well. In August I celebrated 10 years of marriage with my lovely wife Miki, I'm writing the content for this fun tie-in website for The Last Witch Hunter, and I'm still plugging away for Fandango and some other clients. That's all for now. Enjoy your autumn!
