A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia” hits the spot

A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia” hits the spot

| May 31, 2011

As an indie filmmaker living in the Inland Empire in California, my exposure to theater has been more than limited. When I resided in New York and Chicago, I loved to attend plays. Los Angeles’ theater row is small, but it has ton’s of character. The city itself is so large, and theaters litter neighborhoods […]

Jeff Roe Is Doing It His Own Way

Jeff Roe Is Doing It His Own Way

| February 25, 2011

Rare is I get the chance to chat with someone that has the passion and drive of Jeff Roe. Most people never get to.

ALL AMERICAN ORGY

ALL AMERICAN ORGY

| October 28, 2010

At first glance, this film gets your attention by using such a simplistic title, which sets you up for what you’re assuming you’re about to see. In fact, even the cover would grab your attention at Blockbuster, or Netflix, using a buxom, yet faceless, figure to take up over ninety percent of the packaging. Spoiler […]
