Pretty cool! The original Dare short film played here way back in 2005. Fitting that the sequel should start its film festival run here too... and in great company! Full list of films here.

In the second episode of Blindspot that I was very fortunate to direct, there was all kinds of crazy action and I went to Morocco for 5 days to shoot some scenes. Check out a bit of the climactic action sequence... in the air!

I’m making a fan-demanded sequel to the short film that became Dare, my first feature. The short (also called Dare) was a first year film school project. It was successful on the film festival circuit circa 2005 and had a different cast than the feature. A few years after the feature came out I noticed there were fan creations of the short all over Youtube. There was a dance mix version, someone had made their own Portuguese subtitles, etc. But one thing was universal, they were all awful quality, so uploaded the short to my channel so fans could see a hi rez version, and lo and behold and it organically went viral, now with 12+ million views. There are thousands of comments asking for a part 2 with the original short film cast, which has inspired us to start working to make a sequel. Everyone is returning, the writer, director (me), cast (Michael Cassidy and Adam Fleming), the DP, the costume designer, the composer. We need your help! Please check out the kickstarter and if it resonates I hope you will support the film! Thank you!

I was very lucky to get my first shot on Blindspot. Amazing cast and crew. It was so much fun to make and I'm very proud of how it came out. The episode is titled "Droll Autumn, Unmutual Lord" and it airs tonight at 8pm on NBC. Check out the promo here. Hope you will watch!

As my friend said to me, "Man. There are so few just straight up wins like that in this gig... just think about how many movies he's seen!!" That pretty much says it. One of the most completely special things to happen to me in my time making movies. Very thankful.
