Check out our New Film “Like You Mean It”

May 21, 2014

LYMI poster1Hey readers,

I wanted to share with you a new project I have been working on, the film Like You Mean It. This film is the first feature I have Co-Produced after two shorts that I also appeared in, the things i cannot change, and the multi-award winning Dirty Talk. It was a thrill to be able to produce a feature that I know you all will love.

Like You Mean It is an intimate drama about two men (Mark and Jonah) determined to fall back in love. The film was written and directed by Philipp Karner who also plays Mark and Co-Produced the film. Karner who has had great success as an actor on both TV (CSI: Miami, Mistresses, Will & Grace) and the big screen (Kiss the Bride and his current festival award winner Diving Normal) has crafted a lovely film about relationships that everyone can relate to. It costars Denver Milord (Jack Reacher) as Jonah along with a fabulously talented cast LYMI STILLincluding Gillian Shure (Diving Normal, CSI), Claudia Graf (Love & Mercy, The Exes), Andrew Dits (My Crazy Roommate, The Bold & The Beautiful), Scotty Crowe (Diving Normal, Rita Rocks, Shameless), Hilary Ward (Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds), Sheila Korsi (Off Their Rockers) and Adrian Quinonez (Castle, CSI).

We shot the movie last month with an amazing crew on a shoe string budget, and we have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to complete the film and help it reach as wide an audience as possible. Please take a look at the video below which tells you all about Like You Mean It and includes some great footage.

I have been thrilled and overwhelmed at the great reception to our little comedy across this land as we have played 19 festivals and won 5 awards so far.

Michael Buble and P!nk Rule the Charts

May 6, 2013

Sorry for the delay on my post about the biggest hits in music this week, but I’ve been dealing with some “real” work stuff as my short comedy Dirty Talk continues across the festival circuit. (We just played Boston and won the Audience Award at the Miami LGBT Film Fest!!) … But back to the music world, Grammy winner Michael Buble nabs his fourth # 1 album as To Be Loved debuts atop the Billboard 200 Albums chart. He holds off fellow Grammy winner and American Idol winner Fantasia who lands at # 2 with Side Effects of You, her third top ten album and second # 1 R&B Album. Also debuting in the top ten are alt-rockers Phoenix, metal head Rob Zombie and Will.I.Am with a slightly disappointing #9 debut for his latest. Take a look at the full top ten below and head to Billboard for more on all the Albums charts.

Top Ten Albums on the Billboard 200:
1. To Be Loved- Michael Buble (debut)
2. Side Effects of You- Fantasia (debut)
3. The 20/20 Experience- Justin Timberlake (last week~ 3)
4. Bankrupt!- Phoenix (debut)
5. Save Rock and Roll- Fall Out Boy (lw~ 1)
6. Based on a True Story- Blake Shelton (lw~ 4)
7. Venemous Rat Regeneration- Rob Zombie (debut)
8. Indicud- Kid Cudi (lw~ 2)
9. #willpower- Will.I.Am (debut)
10. The Truth About Love- P!nk (lw~ 10)

You saw P!nk‘s long running hit album hanging on for another week in the top ten above, and a big reason why is the third top ten smash from the album “Just Give Me A Reason” featuring Nate Ruess which holds on to the top spot of the Hot 100 Singles Chart for a third week. She fends off a strong charge by Macklmore & Ryan Lewis and will have to face some new competition by Swedish dance duo Icona Pop who charge into the top ten with their fist top ten hit “I Love It”. Take a gander at the new top ten below and head to Billboard for all the singles genre charts here.

Top Ten Singles on the Hot 100:
1. “Just Give Me A Reason”- P!nk w/ Nate Reuss (lw~ 1)
2. “Can’t Hold Us Down”- Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (lw~ 2)
3. “Stay”- Rihanna w/ Mikkey Ekko (lw~ 6)
4. “Thrift Shop”- Macklmore & Ryan Lewis (lw~ 3)
5. “Mirrors”- Justin Timberlake (lw~ 7)
6. “When I Was Your Man”- Bruno Mars (lw~ 4)
7. “Suit & Tie”- Justin Timberlake w/ Jay Z (lw~8)
8. “Feel this Moment”- Pitbull w/ Christina Aguilera (lw~ 9)
9. “I Love It”- Icona Pop (lw~ 13)
10. “Radioactive”- Imagine Dragons (lw~ 12)

And here’s Michael Buble’s new single “It’s A Beautiful Day” from his new chart topping album To Be Loved.

Catch our Film “the things i cannot change” in New York this Weekend!

September 26, 2012

From one film festival to the next, I am all over the place! Last weekend, the hilarious short I co-produced and starred in, Dirty Talk, had its premiere at the Cinema Diverse Palm Springs International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and this weekend, the first short I co-produced and starred in, the things i cannot change, will be having its New York premiere at the Reel Recovery Film Festival. I’ve got you covered with comedy and drama from coast to coast!
things is a wonderful and emotional dramatic short written and directed by my friend and a recent New York transplant, playwright Chris Phillips starring myself (Jason Boegh) and the brilliant Cory Schneider. The film explores the lives of a recently deceased drug addict’s ex-lover and best friend who unexpectedly collide in a heated confrontation. Old grievances are aired and blame is tossed about like a weapon as the two come to grips with losing the man they both loved. things was adapted from Phillips’ GLAAD Award nominated play revolver. It’s a very personal film for all of those involved and I really hope you get a chance to see it.

All of the screening information is below. We will also be playing the Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale editions of the Reel Recovery Festival this fall. For more on Reel Recovery Film Festival (born from the Writers in Treatment group) which focuses on films that deal with addiction, alcoholism, recovery, and treatment etc, head here.

August 28, 2012

As a lot of you readers know, I produced and co-starred in my second short film this year, Dirty Talk.

I’m thrilled to announce we will be having our official world premiere at the Cinema Diverse Palm Springs Gay and Lesbian Film Festival on Sunday September 23rd at 7pm. We will be showing before the new romantic comedy Love or Whatever, so you will be getting two great gay comedies for the price of one. So, if you are in the Palm Springs area or just want to take a trip out to the desert during the festival from Sept. 20-23, grab a ticket to see our film debut. You will be the first public audience to see it aside form a select few at our cast/crew/donor preview a few weeks ago and I think you will have a fantastic time.

“Best in Drag” is Back!

August 2, 2012

The best pageant of the year is back. I’m talking about the hilarious, irreverent and ridiculously entertaining Best in Drag competition that returns to the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles this October 7th. The show, which pits drag queens against one another as they battle for the crown in traditional categories like bathing suit, talent and evening gown, is also a fundraiser for Aid For Aids and they have raised tons of money for this wonderful cause over the years…. The show also features a host of guest celebrity judges (past attendees include Vanessa Williams, Melanie Griffith, Rita Wilson, Holland Taylor, Camryn Manheim, and even Charlie Sheen) plus Kathy Griffin opens the show. I have worked on the show for several years and it is a wonderful and moving experience, not to mention a laugh riot. Tickets are on sale now. Head to the Best in Drag website here for all the information. You can also find info on Twitter and Facebook, and check out their great promotional video below edited by my friend (and my Dirty Talk film editor) David Neuendorff.
