“The Great Marcusio” 15 minute short film

The Great Marcusio is Marcus, a bumbling high school senior desperate to prove his magic chops to his family. Though Marcus struggles to master his dime store illusions, it’s overcoming his annoying sister and doubtful parents which proves to be most difficult. When Marcus lines up a big magic gig for a young girl’s birthday, his parents are thoroughly unimpressed, though he sees it as his next big break.

Pushed to his emotional limit, Marcus is determined to make the party a success. When he dares to perform a dangerous trick for the young party guests, will he unleash a power he never knew he possessed? And will it be enough to prove the doubters wrong?

“The Great Marcusio” is a 15 minute live action short film I directed in 2010. I shot the film on a RED1 with Zeiss Super Speed lenses. It was featured in the NewFilmMakersLA film festival. It was an amazing learning experience that I am quite proud of. If you like the film please feel free to comment. For more information about the film please check out TheGreatMarcusio.com

Lens Baby “Composer.” Stop motion test

So I picked up this Lens Baby Composer and some of their cute little optics to play with. I am going to attempt a small little stop motion project for my new demo reel opening. Should be fun. I started crafting the animated materials with one of my best buddies Joanna last night in hopes of being able to animate tonight. Carved some letters out of cork and glittered the hell out of some pre cut letters. I got 99% of the prep work done when my tripod foot went missing. Damn those little priceless accessories. Tomorrow I will be rummaging through the misc. bin at Bel Air Camera in hopes of finding a new foot that works with my tripod.

The short film I recently directed “The Great Marcusio” has been officially selected by “New Filmmakers LA” to screen in their March 22nd short series. I had a lot of fun with this cast and crew, it feels nice being able to work with such talented people. Jason Director did a GREAT job as our lead “Marcus.” We have a site for all things Marcusio for those of you who are interested in finding out more about the film. www.thegreatmarcusio.com
