In the world of Sudden Death!, there are new blogs up, we’ve started a donor list on the donation page, and a new article goes up tonight. In the creative realm, I finished a new draft of the script the other day, and after a minor polish in the next day or so, we’re going to start getting the script out to a few actors we’re talking to. We have a few really exciting casting possibilities that I can’t wait to talk about, but not yet...

So, it’s been a little while since the last update because we’ve been pretty busy lately. Not to fear, things are coming along very well, slowly but surely. In any case, there is a new Article up that you may want to check out. There’s also a new director’s blog up. Things are moving forward on all fronts, as we’re working on casting and finalizing the script (finally), and we received another very large donation yesterday from Bradley Sheerer -- our newest Executive Producer. We still have a really long way to go, however, and we need your support! Check out the Donate page to help us out! In other news, the teaser trailer will be coming in the next few weeks, and we’ll be adding some viral videos as we get a bit closer to the end of summer. Keep checking this space for updates!

Friday, July 17th

Hope a great weekend was had by all.  Here’s a quick note about what’s happening on our end....


Starting today we have begun the process of contacting talent for the movie.  It’s a lengthy process but we’ll keep you up-to-date as things progress.  Keep checking back here, as well as our Cast page, for the latest info. 


We’d also like to thank the Rich family -- Dan, Cortney, Sara and Ashley -- for their generous donation to our film fund.  We are truly thankful for your support!

Monday, July 20th

There’s a new article up here - you might want to check it out as things have turned deadly serious in the world of Sudden Death! Also, there’s a new Director’s Blog up... but really, who wants to read those anyway? We should hopefully have some exciting casting news coming up pretty soon as scripts have finally gotten out to several different, but all extremely talented actors. Otherwise, we’re at about 10 percent of our fundraising... we obviously have a really long way to go in only a few short months, so please, if you’re planning on donating, do so as soon as possible! We really appreciate all of you and there’s no way we can do this without you!

Friday, July 24th

Some fairly substantial updates recently... there’s a new article up, as well as a new producer’s blog. Things don’t always go as planned, as she so eloquently put it, and they haven’t recently... but that said, there’s still been some decent-sized developments recently as well, regarding casting and music... but we can’t reveal anything just yet. Sorry about that, but you’ll know soon, I promise. Keep checking back, we could have announcements any day now!

Friday, August 6th

Tuesday, August 25th

We would like to officially and very happily announce the addition of a truly fantastic composer to the Sudden Death! team.  Kenny Wood will be joining us to add his extremely talented musical hand to our film.  Please check out his bio on the Crew page.  You won’t be disappointed by his credits. 

We’ve also added new Donor’s.  Huge thanks go out to Dan and Kris Coombes!  We are so thankful for you. 

We’re making great headway with cast, crew and USC and industry advisors.  Looking forward to announcing them to you as soon as we can.  Keep checking back.  We’re going to be updating on an almost daily basis as d-day closes in!

Friday, September 11th

Lots of things going on in the world of Sudden Death! First and foremost, I’d like to announce that John Watson has agreed to be our USC faculty mentor, and Sudden Death! is officially greenlit to go this semester. John has a ridiculously long list of credits (that you can check out at: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0914709/) that includes major films like Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Backdraft and Blown Away.


There’s also a new Article up, and a new, and very important Director’s Blog about money. Speaking of money... we desperately need it! Things are getting close very quickly, and we have a very long way to go. Details on the blog... or you can always go straight to the Donate page.


The first arrangements of the music are underway, and I’m extremely happy with the results. Our song writer, Kahle McCann, and our composer, Kenny Wood, have done a fantastic job. I’m really excited to get these songs out there... they’re very clever lyrically and really strong musically. And I can say that, because I had little to do with either (I wrote the story of the songs, and a couple of the lyrics, but let’s be honest, lyrically, it’s basically all Kahle). I’ll have clips for you to check out up on the site as soon as we have something a bit more professional completed.


Official casting sessions will begin in October, but we have a few people unofficially lined up already. Speaking of, it looks like we’ll have at least one pretty major casting announcement coming up really, really soon... just not yet. Soon, though, I promise! I think you guys will be pretty excited about it.

That’s all for today. We’ll try to update a bit more frequently... things have just been really busy lately. But that’s a good thing! Lots of good things happening!

Monday, October 12th

Lots of things going on in the world of Sudden Death!... still.  I have a feeling it’s only going to get crazier from here on out.  Can you believe we’re less then 2 months away from shooting?  Amazing! 

If you are still considering making a donation to the film -- now is the time!  We are making purchases and putting down deposits daily.  Every cent goes directly towards the film, and the futures of our cast and crew.  I’ll be posting a breakdown of just some of the services, purchases and rentals on my blog soon so you will be able see exactly where your donations are going.  And of course if you have any questions I’m here for you!


In the realm of announcements, we’d like to officially welcome Chris Roberts to our producing team.  Chris is an LA based free-lance producer with an impressive resume.  (see the abbreviated version on our Crew page.)  Chris has already proven to be an invaluable resource to our production and we couldn’t be happier to have him aboard.  Keep an eye out for more info on our newest producer.  His star is rising!


Finally, we’re thrilled to announce that we are the official renters of a beautiful Production Office in downtown Burbank!  The need for a Production Office is great and for the price and location we really got a steal.  I’ll give you the skinny on my blog in a few minutes.  (it’s up now!)


Meanwhile, thank you, as always, for your love and support.  Our project certainly could never get off the ground without you!  We’re looking forward to the wonderful direction we’re being taken in on this film and we can’t wait for more fabulous updates!

Tuesday, October 13th

The Teaser Trailer is finally up! Has it been worth the wait? Probably not. But it’s up! Let us know what you think. Oh, and of course, if you like it, you can always head on over to the Donate page...

Wednesday, October 14th

This is apparently the week for us finally delivering on long promised items. We’re extremely excited to announce Matt Lutz as Sudden Death!’s lead character, Nathan Carlson! Matt’s an incredibly talented guy who’s worked on a ton of stuff, including A Walk to Remember, Bringing Down the House, End of the Spear, Boston Public, etc... That and he has a fantastic singing voice (which you can check out on his webpage). You can also check out his bio on the Cast page. Lots of exciting things happening around here... we’ll be announcing another actor tomorrow (and we’re really excited about him as well)! Oh, and feel free to Donate as much as you want! I know, it wouldn’t be a news update without us begging for money...

Thursday, October 15th

Alright, so this is just a crazy week of updates. Following our exciting casting news from yesterday, we’re extremely excited to announce that Doug Jones has joined our cast! Doug has a list of credits a mile long, and they include: Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (he was the Silver Surfer), Hellboy I and II (he was Hellboy’s sidekick Abe Sapien as well as 2 other characters in the sequel), the Oscar winning Pan’s Labyrinth (he was Pan), Quarantine (the creepy guy at the end who gave me nightmares), etc, etc, etc... The list goes on and on, so you can check it out on IMDB. We’re really blessed and very excited to be working with another super talented and experienced (and incredibly nice) actor. We’ll have more soon, but if you want to check him out in the meantime, head on over to the Cast page and then to his website, The Doug Jones Experience!

Wednesday, October 28th

We’re really looking forward to working with Autumn, and if that news at all excites you or you just feel like donating today, the $25 Drive is still going. No, it is not to late (I know you were worried), so get on over to the Donate page!

Friday, November 6th

We’re very excited to announce that Ben Boquist has joined our team as the art director!

Mark is currently playing Big Mike on Chuck and has a list of credits a mile long (you’ve undoubtedly seen him in something!). Mark’s a great guy and a very funny actor and stand up comedian, and we’re extremely excited to have him on board!


We’ve also added Beth Castle to the cast! Beth’s another very talented actress who’s done a ton of theater. She’s also a very good friend of ours, so we’re really excited about her joining us!


As always, feel free to Donate! We’re getting really close to our goal, your donation could be the one that pushes us over! Oh, and yes, the $25 Drive is still going on!

Tuesday, November 24th

Added lots of people to the Cast and Crew pages. We’re getting close!

Sunday, December 20th

We’re wrapped!! Well, actually, we’ve been wrapped since Thursday, but I’ve been too sick and/or lazy to post. Things went incredibly well... we had an amazing cast and crew; a group of people that I already miss. Our entire cast was amazing... and did I mention we added 5-time Emmy Winner John Larroquette as Commander Jenkins? He did an amazing job as well.


In the coming days, I’ll try to post a bit more on here. I plan on retroactively blogging about the shoot so you all can get a feel for what it was like. I’ll also be posting some of the music on here (well, the vocals with the temporary electronic backing... we record the orchestral parts this spring)... trust me, you’ll be impressed. Matt and Autumn are two of the best singers I’ve ever heard.


But, until then, how about some production stills? I’ve added a Photos page to the website, so you can take a look at some of the pictures we got during the shoot. More of those will be added soon as well!

Wednesday, January 6th

Happy New Year! Tons of new stuff added to the site today (and I’ll be adding more in the coming days and weeks)!


First and foremost, the lovely (and very kind to us) Anoray has posted a set report of the two days she spent on our set with Doug Jones over at The Doug Jones Experience! Go check it out! You’ll definitely get a very detailed view of what our set was like from her perspective! I think it’s a good read... sure, it’s about our film, but I don’t think that’s influencing me at all...


Secondly, for those of you that have been patiently waiting to get a taste of the music of Sudden Death!, your day has finally come! “The Cure” has been posted over at the newly created Music page, and we’ve also added a Press page! These and the photos page can now be found under the Media tab at the top of every page.


And finally, if you want set reports from the director’s perspective, check out the new Director’s blogs - “Music Recording” and “Day One” to get a semi-thorough play by play of the shoot!

Thursday, January 7th

I know most of you don’t care so much about the set reports and just want to hear more of the music. Well, wish granted (albeit only in part). A clip from “Sudden Death!” (the opening song) has been posted on the Music page (which you can find on the Media page). Enjoy!


But, you’re not getting away without a couple more set reports. Day Six and Day Seven over on my Blog!


Also, check out our Facebook and Twitter pages!

Monday, February 8th

Thursday, February 18th

Firstly, the final two Articles are up! Thus completes the saga of what happened in the time not covered by the short film. And for those of you that thought the articles were a waste of time (I know who you are... not really, but I bet you got a little paranoid there...), check em out, because some of those character will be showing up in the feature version of Sudden Death!


Speaking of the feature, I’m ankle deep in writing it right now, and I’m really excited about how it’s turning out! Oh yeah, and editing is going really well also... Find out about that and more in the all new Director’s Blog: What’s Next?

Monday, April 5th

Newsflash: Doug Jones is amazing. Just in case you didn’t know. Head on over to the Press page to check out an interview at the World Toronto Comicon during which Doug really, really, really talks up Sudden Death! for like 2 minutes (seriously, we’re so blessed to know that guy). It’s like a 9 minute interview, and the part about Sudden Death! starts around the 4:50 mark. Again, the video is embedded on the Press page under the Media tab. Thanks Doug! We love you too!


Also, we’ve added a new page featuring some of the concept art for the film by our amazing Storyboard Artist/Costume Designer Ben Boquist! Go check it out on the Concept Art page under the Media tab!.

Monday, April 12th

THE HELP! DRIVE is here... I know, doesn’t sound super exciting at first, but there’s a pretty cool incentive here. Let me level with you: although we raised enough for the initial production and much of post production, we don’t have enough money to finish the movie right now. Which would be a huge shame as the test screening scores and feedback we’ve been getting have been amazing. So, we’re launching one last drive in an effort to get this thing to the level it needs and deserves to be at. Check out all the details (as well as a really detailed update on everything that’s been happening in the world of Sudden Death!) HERE. I can’t stress enough how important this is, we literally can’t do this without you. So, if you don’t need details, head over to the DONATE page!


Here’s the incentive: Anyone who donates $15 or more during this drive will receive an exclusive link and password to see the FIRST EVER RELEASED footage of Sudden Death! It should give you a great sneak peek into the actors, set, costumes, decoration, cinematography, etc... as well as being some really funny outtakes. So, please, please, please help us out!


AND: We promised a really cool update today, so even if you don’t donate anything, there’s something pretty dang cool for you over at the VIDEOS page under the MEDIA tab. Yep, that’s right, the FIRST EVER LOOK (I love capitals today) at the music recording as well as the dance rehearsals. That’s right, no one else has ever seen this stuff! Hope you guys enjoy all the updates today! Again, a Blog with an exhaustive update on everything that’s happening along with the Help! Drive details, a sweet new Video and secret link for donators!!!

Monday, May 24th

First of all, we’re on IMDB! Go check us out!


Secondly, our amazing composer Kenny Wood, along with 24 very talented musicians, recorded the orchestral score last week, and it sounds amazing. Go on and check out the Video, a few Pictures  and some Audio under the Media tab.


Thirdly, been wondering where we are in the filmmaking process? Go check out the newest Director’s Blog to find out! We’re getting really close!


And finally, Happy Birthday to Doug Jones, Nick Jones and Mark Christopher Lawrence!

Saturday, June 26th

Yes, we’re working on a Saturday - so check out the good stuff!


New Photos are up on the Media page of our recording session with the phenomenal vocalists Sabrina Sloan and Harrison White.  Thanks to Kenny Wood for orchestrating another fantastic session, to Kelly Su for the great pics, and to Sabrina and Harrison for loaning us their beautiful set of pipes!


Another HUGE thank you to everyone who has been a part of this film.  We’ll never be able to thank you enough for your love (either of us, musicals or death... we’ll take any) and your support.  Check out the full list of our truly amazing cast and crew on our very own IMDB page.


Finally, for all of you who may be curious, we have officially entered 53 film festivals and we are currently in consideration at 19 of them.  No big announcements yet but we’ll plaster the internet, and the website, when we do!

Since we’re on an airplane heading to St. Louis... let’s do quick bullet points:


  1. *Sudden Death! has been accepted to the Trail Dance Film Festival in Oklahoma this January!  Everyone in, around and in between Oklahoma City and Dallas please put it on your calendars!

  2. *SD! will also be hitting up the Iron Mule Comedy Film Festival in NYC in January.  Another fabulous fest with some great people you won’t want to miss. 

  3. *Friends in the Houston and Las Vegas areas can catch the film early next month at the Houston Comedy and Nevada Film Festivals.  We’ve been nominated for Best Short, Best Cinematography and Best Editing in Houston and we have WON Best Student Film in Nevada!  Congratulations everyone!

  4. *And since we’re on our way to STL we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our FREE (yes, FREE!) screening of Sudden Death! at the B&B Theatres in Wildwood, MO this Saturday at 10A.  Come hang out with us at this amazing event and support the “local boy.”


Bullet points - yes.  Quick - kinda.

Sudden Death! fun fact:

It was a year ago today that we met at Biola University to start principle photography on Sudden Death!  What a wonderful year!  Thanks for everything, guys!

Wednesday, December 8th

It’s official!  Adam has completed the feature script for Sudden Death!

It features 17 fantastic songs from Kenny Wood and Kahle McCann - over 40 minutes of music.  And of course, rampant, hilarious death.

We’ll keep you posted as things progress.

Saturday, November 20th

We had a wonderful screening in St. Louis this morning at the B&B Theatres!


Thank you ALL so much for coming out to support Adam, Wes and Sudden Death! 

We’d specifically like to thank the lovely people at B&B for offering this free screening to the public and Wildwood, MO Mayor Tim Woerther for taking such an interest in SD! to make sure we had an amazing STL premiere!  We’d also like to thank Adam’s parents (and my sweet in-laws) - Jim and Dawn Hall for loving us, our trade and our movie by making this premiere happen.

And we would be SO remiss if we didn’t thank Jeff Roark for showing up in his penguin suit to host the event and post-show Q&A. 


Looking forward to some great upcoming showings at the Houston Comedy Film Festival and the Nevada Film Festival in the next few weeks!

Saturday, December 17th

One year ago today on a church playground in Burbank, trying to beat the setting sun - we wrapped principle photography on Sudden Death!  Our cast and crew are the most amazing people!

Saturday, December 25th

Wishing you all, wherever you may be, a wonderful, magical and very...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

And know that you are loved!

Friday, December 31st

We have had one of the most fabulous, crazy years of our lives.  There is SO much to be thankful for.  Tons of blessings came at the end of the year.  Here they are in random order:


  1. *SD!’s been accepted to the NextFrame International Student Film Festival.  Cool in it’s own right, but the films accepted to this fest travel the globe for all of 2011.  Cooler, right?  We’re nominated for Best Narrative so keep your fingers crossed, send up prayers and we’ll let you know in 2011 how we do!

  2. *We’ve also been accepted to the Sedona International Film Festival in Arizona.  New state for us!  The wonderful people there have also offered to put us up and feed us while we’re there, so I think a road trip is in order.

  3. *Sudden Death! will be heading to the Beloit International Film Festival this February in Wisconsin.  (I’m packing Adam a parka and a flare gun - just in case.)  Please help buzz up the film by simply visiting the Beloit Local Vision channel here - and if you’re feeling in the loving mood rate the film or leave a comment. It would help us immensely!  You can also review us on IMDB or Facebook if you’d like.  THANK YOU!!

  4. *We have 7 festivals set up already for 2011 - January through April. The first of which is next weekend in NYC.  Check out the updates to the Festivals page to find out when Sudden Death! is coming to your area!

  5. *We’ve started to update the photos from this years fests.  It’s slow going but we hope you enjoy what we’ve been able to put up so far. Keep checking back for more photo fun.

  6. *There’s a new Producer’s Blog up kind of rehashing 2010 and giving you all the nitty gritty on what to look forward to in 2011.  There’s A LOT!!

  7. *One exciting event of the New Year I’m happy to announce now is the release of a special edition DVD of Sudden Death!  We have just received behind the scenes footage from our filming recently discovered by our second AC (...camera connection, tech guru...).  I know Disney likes to come out with “previously unseen material” but I promise you, in this case it’s absolutely accurate.  It will also contain a recut, festival version of the film along with a ton of other goodies.  No date for release as of yet (but just between you and me I’ve always been fond of the SPRING...) but we’ll keep you posted here with all of the updates.


Last post of 2010.  What a wonderful year.  Thank you all for being a part of it.  Whether you worked on SD!, supported us with email, love, money or food; followed us from the beginning or are just becoming a fan now, thanks for joining us on this fabulous, crazy journey. We couldn’t do it without you.  Happy New Year!!

happy new years eve!

It’s Research. time!! Over 600 people have "Liked" our new Doug Jones video and 27 wonderful people so far have believed in our new project - Research. - enough to support it through our Kickstarter page! That's an amazing number and we are so thankful for all of you!

We only have 8 days left to fully fund Research. or it cannot and will not be made. For the amount we're trying to raise we will be able to rent a location, camera, lights, a dolly, costumes, set dressing and props, be able to feed our crew (we all need to eat!) and much much more. That's for 8 episodes and 7 mini-episodes! (much longer than Sudden Death! for a fraction of the price!!) Literally every dollar is helpful. We have this thing budgeted down to the penny! Please consider supporting Research. today!!   http://researchseries.com/http://researchseries.com/shapeimage_116_link_0

Monday, November  14th, 2011

Research. has been fully funded! We'll be making a web series early next year!
