ANTUMBRA finally made First Contact!
The film was nominated for BEST COSTUME, BEST VFX, and BEST LIGHT. Kudos to cast and crew for this amazing accomplishment.
The festival is based in New Jersey and ran online for one week. From July 4th until July 11th they presented fantastical and imaginative genre films from around the globe. So happy the film was a part of this fantastic festival – check out their facebook page for more info.
ANTUMBRA continues from London to Los Angeles and will be screened at the 25th-anniversary edition of the Academy Award qualifying LA Shorts International Film Festival.
Congrats to cast and crew for this giant leap.
This is also my personal fifths anniversary of presenting a film at this great festival.
The SciFi screenings will premiere online on July 8th and are accessible through The Shorts Network Youtube Channel. Check out the LA Shorts Facebook page for more info and visit their page on how to watch the films.
ANTUMBRA was well received in the UK and I was told it looked amazing on the IMAX screen at the Odeon in Greenwich.
The film was the runner-up for Best 5 Minute Film at the WildINDiE festival in London.
So proud and more to go!
The WildIndie festival included ANTUMBRA in this years’ lineup. A truly great festival that fosters independent film and was awarded one of London’s Top 5 film festivals. The screening will be online as well as in-person on May 29th, 2021 in London’s Odeon Theatre in Greenwich.
I am so happy that THE NEW GUY found its festival. On June 5th the Zeitgeist Film Festival will present the film in the Comedy Shorts program. “Who said the end of the world couldn’t be a hoot?!”

The festival focuses on bringing filmmaker together so I hope to see all of your there.
I had the pleasure of making this short documentary about the Villa Aurora in Los Angeles
The magnificent house has been used as an artist residence since 1995 and it is the former home of the German-Jewish author Lion Feuchtwanger and his wife Marta.
See the film on the VATMH Youtube channel or visit my Vimeo channel for a 4k version or a shorter version in German. Enjoy!
