Moviemaking is a Messy Business

If you’ve been watching my Instagram lately, you will have noticed someone has a gripe against a guy named Vinnie. ¬†ūüėČ

I was back on the set of James Balsalmo’s The Litch this week and I was again impressed by James’s wizardry, this time with masks, snot fabricated from cottage cheese and blood from chocolate syrup and food coloring. It was a messy, fun, albeit, occasionally odorous time. It’s amazing what creativity we have when we use it and James is a truly creative fellow.

Congratulations to Thomas Schlamme

Congratulations to fellow UT-Austin alum Thomas Schlamme on being elected president of the DGA yesterday evening.  I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Schlamme a few years back when he was directing Studio 60.  It was very inspiring to hear his story of success and he was also kind enough to introduce us to Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford that evening.  Hook Em Horns!

Behind the Scenes of The Litch

This week, I got to have a fun part in The Litch, directed by James Balsalmo of Acid Bath Productions. ¬†It was a high-spirited, improvisational shoot. ¬†Coming out later this year, the film also stars Tom Sizemore, the legendary ¬†Lloyd Kaufman and fellow scream queen Genoveva Rossi. ¬†James is creative, collaborative and fun and I told our manager Matt Chassin that he was like the “Christopher Guest of horror”. ¬†This is sure to be a fun horror comedy.

Armin Nasseri of Seeking Valentina fame was also on-hand helping with our scene. It was great to have his positive energy there. ¬†I can’t wait to see it debut on the big screen later this year!
