The following is a list of projects that I have played as either one of the lead(s), a recurring or a series regular.
TRIVIA-I was told I was the third person (out of over 600) who replied to the ad to audition for NoSS. I was originally asked to audition for another part and I did two video auditions for that. They said they was good but asked if I could try out for “Corneilus” and, if so, to send them an attack video-which I’d never done before. With the help of Ron Bonk and Brian Hewitt I did so. I must of did OK cause I got the part 🙂
TALES OF DRACULA (Wolfbain Productions)
TRIVIA-I was totally unaware of auditions and filming being done on this production. I got a message from “Movie Mike” (Mike Rudolf) in regards to this. He really felt that I could do the part of “Dracula.” I got in contact with producer Joe DeMuro and set up an audition. I was told later on that I basically got the role as soon as I walked in-me saying a line from the script just confirmed it.
-Recurring Role-Ensign Dawson Walking Bear
-Seen in the Following Episodes
2)-Bread & Savagery
3)-The Holiest Thing
4)-Going Boldly (Vignette)
TRIVIA-I originally went out for an extra role for this and was given a call by writer Patty Wright asking if I wanted to play “Walking Bear” for “Mind Sifter.” I said yes. My first day of filming, after my first take, James Cawley (Executive Producer of STP2) took me to the side and asked if I wanted to be a permanent cast member of STP2. I said yes 🙂
TRIVIA-‘Romeo 3000’ started out in 2012 as a 17 page short film script submitted to me from Mad Angel Films Head Taco Matt Peters. Originally I was slated to play the role of Romeo. I asked him if I could tinker with it. Long story short, by 2015, ‘Romeo 3000’ was now around 123 pages and with me as the role of Tybalt. I was also one of the few cast members who not only designed his own costumes, but bought almost 95% of them on my own as well.
TRIVIA-This was one of two entries I was involved in for a Zombie Short Film contest by Ron Bonk of SRS Cinema LLC. Part of the rules for the contest was you couldn’t be in more than one of them unless a) it was the exact same character or b) they were totally different. Since I was already in “Locked In” and I was cast in this one as a killer, I basically went a little extreme to make him kinda “Joker-like.” It was actually a little easier to play this role than I’d anticipated, but still, IMO, way short towards approaching The Joker. I just sought to give “Draven” a little Joker “flavor” and I think , in that, I did OK. 🙂 Producer Matt Peters gave me free reign over the character and I basically changed all of my dialogue to be more like what I envisioned “Draven” to be in my head. I was also the one who came up with the title of this short film 🙂 BATM was one of the top finalists in the contest and, as a result, will be included in an upcoming DVD compilation by SRS Cinema LLC called “Empire of the Dead.”
BRACKISH (Mad Angel Films)
TRIVIA-This is a remake of the original “Brackish”, which was the first feature film Mad Angel Films put out in 2007. I wasn’t able to attend the auditions, but was called in when the actor who originally had the “Merlock” role had to pull out. The above photo came from a weekend shoot that found me up for more than 24 hours filming. I couldn’t go to sleep due to the contacts. You just make due…
TRIVIA-Producer Matt Peters contacted me with this role, no audition needed. 🙂 Even though I have had long hair thru out the years, for this production I wore a wig.
BATAILLE DE SANG (The Horror of it All Productions)
-TRIVIA-I was offered the role of Dracula in this based on my performance in TALES OF DRACULA. However, producer Joe DeMuro wanted me to play the role differently than in Tales so I did 🙂 While this film is also black and white, it’s also silent.
-Lead Role-Buddy (AKA The Ferryman)
-TRIVIA-I was notified about this role by my close friend / fellow actor Cassandra Hayes. I went into the audition and, even though I had to go for a call back, I was told it was just a formality. I was also told that basically, as soon as I did the sides that I basically had the role. This was all done at Syracuse University in Syracuse, NY.
-Lead Role-Genghis Khan
-TRIVIA-I was contacted directly by director Lee Wilson in regards to taking on the role of Genghis Khan for this via a recommendation from Prashanth Sampathkumaran, who had worked on the crew in the short film ‘The Ferryman.’
-Lead Role-Jake / The Killer
-TRIVIA-I’d done some smaller stuff for both producers Terry Little & James Domroe in the past. Based on that, I was cast as one of the lead roles in DTS without having to audition. Not only that, I’m playing three roles! Who says networking doesn’t work? 🙂
LOSING GRACE (Mad Angel Films / Hazy Shade Productions)
-Lead Role-Father Casey
-TRIVIA-When I got this role, writer Cassandra Hayes suggested that-since Father Casey was “buzzed” in this-I should be as well. I considered it…but did I do it? 🙂
FAILMAN (Mad Angel Films)
-Series Regular- Randy AKA “Tonto”
-Seen in the Following Episodes
-Episode 1 “The “F” Stands For….”
-Episode 2 “Enter The Buckman”
-Episode 3 “Buckman Vs. Dr. Sinister”
-Episode 4 “Rainbow Fart Blast”
TRIVIA-Producer Matt Peters contacted me for this role shortly after I started filming my first episode of STP2. However, I changed a few things. Originally, Randy was a Native American sidekick who just took verbal abuse. I changed it so that he wasn’t Native American (but was still ragged as one) and that while he took it, he fired back as well. In addition, I also suggested that the only reason he doesn’t annihilate Failman himself is due to money.
