Paradise Recovered


I am Producing and Directing my first feature film this summer. We’ll be shooting in Austin Texas and Bloomington Indiana and we’re gearing up to shoot right now (starting July 6th).

Paradise Recovered is a modern-day retelling of the parable of the Good Samaritan and a coming of age story about a young woman’s discovery of what it means to have faith. It was written by the very talented Andie Redwine who is also Producing.

Here’s how you can keep to date with everything that’s happening as we embark on this adventure.

Twestival Wells Being Drilled

Twestival was a worldwide Twitter organized festival to raise money for Charity: Water. Charity: Water is all about getting clean water to the 1.1 billion people on earth who are currently forced to drink muddy, parasite filled water. I was lucky enough to be a part of the Austin Twestival. I even shot and edited a video about it which you can see here.

That’s why I’m really really excited to see that the drilling has commenced on the first Twestival wells in Ethiopia:

Highlights from the Austin Twestival at Ace’s Lounge on 6th St. Part of the worldwide Twestival event that took place in over 200 cities on February 12th, 2009. The name Twestival comes from the words Twitter and Festival. This event was conceived and promoted through Twitter. It was, as my friend @daveiam like to say, social media for social good. Worldwide, the Twestival raised over 250K for Charity: Water. That money will bring access to clean water to over 17,000 who currently drink water filled with parasites and mud.
