“Potter’s Ground” – a western feature

It’s been some long weeks of freezing nights shoots, but we’re finally coming down the home stretch on a western feature I’m working on called “Potter’s Ground.” We’re scheduled to finish principal photography in a week and a half. It’s an ambitious script, and I can’t wait to share it; the final product is scheduled to hit Netflix later this year.

In the meantime, here’s a teaser trailer as well as some screen grabs.

 

 

A study in hats

As I was going back through pictures of past jobs, I noticed that some of my favorite roles included characters wearing some kind of hat (I’m including helmets and wigs).

Interesting wardrobe allows an actor to disappear into a character much more easily than when I hear “and can you bring a bunch of your own clothes for wardrobe options?” I realize that using your own clothes is part of the deal on a lot of low budget films, but I love it when a director has a vision for their characters that’s super specific. It tells me that they’ve done the work to honor their characters, and it puts me at ease.

Just something to ponder for you directors out there…

“House of the Righteous” behind the scenes

I got an early look at the finished cut of “House of the Righteous,” and I can’t wait until Aug. 25 for everyone else to see it! In the meantime, check out this behind the scenes look at the film starring Edward James Olmos and Grant Goodeve.
