From the Director’s Chair: Who You Gonna Call?

I recently directed a pilot presentation for a comedy series titled Polterguys. It’s sort of a Ghost Hunters meets Reno 911 kinda thing. I was luck enough to work with a group of terrific comedic actors. It’s not often you get to have that much fun on set. I’m really hoping the show gets picked up. It would be a blast to direct on a regular basis! Any network heads out there? Wanna buy a show?

If you’d like to watch the three minute presentation, you can view it on my directing web site (

It was a VERY short shoot, so efficiency was extremely important. I relied heavily on Storyboard Composer for doing quick previsualizations, and Artemis Director’s Viewfinder to line up my shots. Good times!

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
