The awesome trailer for my latest project CHOSEN season three just dropped, check it out above. Catch up on the first two seasons during the “less ads binge weekend” at crackle.com then come back once you’re done with your taxes on April 15th and watch the entire new season, for free at crackle.com, or with the Crackle app on AppleTV, XBox, PlayStation, iPhone, Droid, etc… Deal? 

CHOSEN is a really great show created by my good friend Ben Ketai and Ryan Lewis, an incredible cast including Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Sarah Roemer (Disturbia, The Grudge 2), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, Scott Pilgrim), the sensationally talented child star Caitlin Carmichael, and new this season the kick-ass Rose McGowan (Charmed, Planet Terror). The first two seasons have been a smash success, tense, dark, gritty, bloody, and action-packed… just my cup of tea. I hope you love watching it as much as I loved directing it. 

And if you do love it, please share it with your friends. 

New season of #chosen directed by yours truly. If you haven’t seen it I suggest you catch up with the first two seasons: crackle.com

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas "Misfit Right In" 30-second TV Commercial - YouTube »

Maybe I’m late to the party, but this ad for a The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Luxury Resort & Casino is the most insane thing I’ve seen on television, maybe ever, and I’m not just talking about other ads.

And by insane I mean awesome.

It’s not just one of closest things I’ve ever seen to actual subliminal advertising, but also a spot on update of the concept of a “BlipVert” as posited by the original film version of “Max Headroom”. The music is more edgy than most of the music played in today’s clubs, let alone on TV or radio. But the picture content, the copywriting, the typography, the imagery, all extremely well done.

I don’t care about hotels in Vegas at all, but I am intrigued enough by this ad to think about what this hotel might be like. Not because that’s what the advertising agency is asking me to think - I’m not some kind of brainwashed sheep, am I? - but because the minds behind the hotel are also the clients who said yes to the ad, who hired the ad agency in the first place, who gave them the brief that led to this. My hope for the future of advertising (something I have more of than Mad Men’s Don Draper) is that creatives are thinking that many steps ahead to elicit this exact response, in someone like myself, who thinks he’s outsmarted those who would try and sell him stuff he doesn’t need. Touché Cosmo resort spa thingy, or whatever your name was…

It’s that time of year again. Let the free screening begin!

A new Splinter review. »

Every now and then someone discovers or rediscovers my 2008 film Splinter. Sometimes they like it. Sometime they blog about it. Sometimes they write a really nice review of it like this guy.
