Star Wars Party Wrap-Up

I had the most wonderful time hosting The Party Strikes Back at EMP Museum, and am so grateful for the opportunity. The event went incredibly well thanks to the amazing crowd, fantastic performers and cosplayers, and the tireless efforts of the EMP staff.

Here’s a gallery of photos posted by EMP, where you can get a sense of the magic.


Here’s some of my photos from the evening.

I also took a couple awesome videos of Stormtroopers, R2 and a Jawa dancing, which you can find on my facebook.

Thanks so much to EMP for being incredibly rad.

SciFi #13: Cosmic Child


Jesse is visited by a friend from his old life in San Diego, Asher Mendel. They discuss the intention behind content creation in a vast landscape of reboots, remakes and sequels. Jesse performs his brand new song, Cosmic Child.

Lake Charles Film Festival

Lake Charles

My video for Relativity has been accepted to the Lake Charles Film and Music Festival, which will be taking place October 9-11 in Lake Charles, LA. The special guest of honor will be Gil Gerard, Buck Rogers himself! This is the third festival the video has been accepted to, which is a huge testament to the talent of my DOP Justin Minich and the rest of the cast and crew. If you are in the Lake Charles area, the festival seems like it will be hugely entertaining!

My Frasier adoration made manifest

Due to some sort of cosmic idiot luck, I ended up reading as Frasier in a live episode of my favorite podcast with Matt Mira and Kevin Smith at Bumbershoot. Sometimes life is just rad. Check out this episode (I’m in the last few minutes) and all the others.
