Hit the MARC Finale *** Sweet Music Video *** IAJF Summer Gala

I know it’s been a while, but there was a lot to gather!

First, and foremost, we *finally* got the series finale of Hit the MARC out.

This is very exciting, and it concludes, for the time being, 2 years of work. We’re pretty proud of what we’ve done, and achieved, and we are so grateful for all of you who watched, and supported, and donated.

Here’s the episode:

I also updated the gallery with photos from the episode.

We will be working on the gag reel in the following weeks, in order to complete our DVD for our special backers!

I spent 4 days mid June, in Saratoga, NY, with a great team, to shoot a music video for Marcus Ruggiero’s song – “Sweet”. It was a crazy experience, we got to start at 5 AM and finish at 3 AM some of the days, but Saratoga is beautiful, and I was really happy to be a part of it. You can see a rough, partial version of the would be final product, right here:

I got to meet and work with lovely people, and I can’t wait to see, and show you the final product! In the meantime, I’ve got some nice stills, taken by the lovely LeRon Lee. Click the photo to see the new gallery!

I updated the resume page accordingly, and the Facebook page as well.

The day after I got back from Saratoga, I joined once more, the production team of LinCommunicatin, for the IAJF summer gala for their young leadership

It was a lovely evening at the NYC public library, with special entertainment – Comedian Maz Jobrany.

Next on the agenda is the winter gala!

Here are a few photos from the evening.

And so, to conclude, June was a bit crazy indeed.

Lastly, I just got the word that “Shadows of Love” is finally locked and ready to be submitted to festivals, after a long period of post production. I know that some of the festivals already have a sure spot for the film that has been anticipated for a while, so once I have definite news, you’ll know!

Have a lovely week, everyone!

 

 

 


***Article on Holon Bat Yam***Hit the MARC***Shadows of Love***Smirnoff

Hey guys! It’s been a while. A lot to cover! And on that note, the first thing is the written press coverage section. I was fortunate enough to have a lovely 90 minutes phone interview with Revital Parker from Israel, which ended up being an article on April 20th, on Holon – Bat Yam Times, a newspaper in Israel.

The result, I think, is quite great. I got to talk about the experience of living in NYC, about Hit the MARC, and a lot more.

here it is, click to enlarge, and you can read the English version right here.

I’m happy to say that we wrapped episode 4 of “Hit the MARC” few days ago. We also auditioned for a new role a couple of weeks back, and so our newest cast member is Jackson Eather. Not gonna spoil much, just gonna say – stay tuned, there will be a ukelele involved.

In the mean time, a few sneak peaks from episode 4:

We also have a new director, Juan Jose Arroyo Pachecho with whom I worked on the film “Cerebrus” months ago. Very exciting indeed. We’re currently in the process of finding a producer, and if all goes well, we will be shooting the rest of the season late July – early August.

The main thing, of course, is the Kickstarter. With 14 days to go, and $270 missing, any dollar can help our cause. This is gonna pay for equipment, and festival submissions, among other things.

Do feel free to help : )

I recently wrapped a feature called “Shadows of Love”. I played the role of Smiley, and it was quite the experience with filming in NJ and in a club in Brooklyn. The film was accepted to the Nashville Pitchfest which was last week. This is very exciting, and it’s only the beginning. Make sure you stay tuned and I promise I’ll update about festival status, etc.

Another fun fact is that I shot a spec commercial for Smirnoff few weeks ago. Sadly I can’t share many details, I can only say I was dressed like a rocker and that a Brooklyn alley at night was involved. Maybe I’ll be able to share more in the future 🙂

On a more personal note, I’ll add that I got my visa this past week and so I’m gonna stay here and create some more chaos for at least 3 more years. I hope you’re ready.


***New Minisode***Hit the MARC on Sidereel!***Characters on Facebook!***Kickstarter updates***Shadows of love

Hey guys!

Things have been a little bit hectic around here lately, *but*, here are some good news!

First of all, we have a new minisode of “Hit the MARC”, this time revolving around CJ, so more screen time for me, which is not the best idea when I’m both the director/editor. Self criticism at its best. But, my dad said the acting was great, so it has to be right, right?

Anyways, here it is! Enjoy!

I’m quite happy and proud to say that the show was featured on the main page of Sidereel.com for the past few days. The site has 9 million visitors a day, and we were featured right next to Once Upon a Time, Desperate Housewives, Walking Dead and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Quite honored and thank you Shiran for a fine PR work! This thing got us a traffic of thousands of viewers on YouTube on the course of 3 days, and we pretty much doubled almost tripped our viewers count. Quite the achievement in my book : )

***

I’m happy to say that some of our characters found their way to Facebook. Rumor has it that they’ll friend anyone, but they’re not necessarily the nicest. And by “they”, I mean CJ.

So you can friend CJ, Abbie or Javier. We might have the rest at some point, but we’re not supporting peer pressure so we’ll have to wait and see.

***

So we’ve launched our Kickstarter campaign a week and a half ago, and while we’re currently on $445, if we won’t get to $1000, we won’t get a dime. Not to mention, if we *pass* that amount, we get all the additionals. I honestly think the future and the quality of the show depend on this campaign because even though I’d love to put all means towards this baby, there’s a limit to what I, as a person and not a business, can invest. So if you want to support us, by donating or even just spreading the word, we’d love that. So please check it out. Thank you!

I was fortunate enough to land a featured role in a new feature (no pun intended) called “Shadows of Love” which will be directed by the wonderful Kenya Cagle who’s the head of Caglevision, an acclaimed director and has been in the business for years. He will be directing a script by the lovely Stephanie Walker. I’ll be playing the role of Smiley, and will be filming this weekend in NJ and late April in Manhattan. I’m very happy about this opportunity and we already know that the film is going to be featured in at least two film festivals later this year. Very very exciting.

That’s all guys! Take care!
