It’s the weekend which means the episode of African-American Short Films featuring my short is hitting new markets.  This week it’s pretty long, see below:

I can’t pick out one city on that list to tell a story about, so instead I’ll show some love to my production team.  My DP on this project was Jeremy Osbern, a very talented fellow Jayhawk alum like myself.  I really can’t say enough good things about the gang at Through A Glass, in time the fates will align and we’ll work together again.

All for now, have a good weekend!


So if you’re like me, you’re probably still digesting your giblets.  Got an extra day off work.  If you’re really like me, you’re avoiding anything that remotely resembles a shopping center this weekend.  So what do you do hot shot, what do you do?

I’ll tell you what to do; you can catch “Lady In My Life’ on African-American Short Films!  This weekend,  the film plays in both my native and my adopted hometown:

Odessa-Midland  Station: KPEJ / FOX   Date: 12/02 Time: 4:00AM

Toledo  Station: WMNT/MYTV   Date: 11/25 Time: 2:00PM

Waco-Temple-Bryan  Station: KWKT/FOX   Date: 11/27 Time: 3:30AM

Waco-Temple-Bryan  Station: KYLE/MYNET   Date: 11/27 Time: 3:30AM

Kansas City  Station: KMBC / NBC   Date: 11/27 Time: 12:30PM

Jackson, MS  Station: WAPT / NBC   Date: 11/27 Time: 12:00PM

Los Angeles  Station: KCBS / KCAL   Date: 11/28 Time: 4:00AM

I know for a fact the Chiefs don’t play until Sunday night this weekend, all the more reason to get a little joy on the television this weekend before the bitterness and frustration kick in.

Hope everyone is having a nice Thanksgiving weekend!


Here are this weekend’s screenings for the African-American Short Films program:

Macon  Station: WPGA /IND   Date: 11/19 Time: 5:00PM

Columbus, OH  Station: WWHO CW   Date: 11/20 Time: 11:00AM

Grand Rapids-Kalmzoo-B.Crk  Station: WZZM / ABC   Date: 11/20 Time: 2:30PM

Montgomery-Selma  Station: WNCF ABC   Date: 11/20 Time: 2:00PM

The Midwest and the South representing this week.  Now if you don’t mind, a little introspection…

I was talking to my old man, who called down home to some cousins in Baton Rouge about last night’s screening.  Even before I talked to him though, I took a moment to reflect on how, for quite a while now, my work, my image, my art has been able to travel places I have never been to personally.  Some places I never will go to, some places I plan to visit eventually.  As strong as my itch is to have more, it’s still something I admit I lose sight of from time to time.  Remembering where I started, and remembering that what I’ve already accomplished is amazing to many of those who love me.

So that’s my sappiness for the week. Have a great weekend!


Baton Rouge


‘African-American Short Films’ gets an early start this weekend, in the state where my roots can be traced back to.

Thursday night, the show airs on Baton Rouge’s KWBJ at 8 P.M.  I’ve passed through Baton Rouge many times of course; as I’ve stated in this space, I spent a small part of my school years and many summers growing up in Louisiana.  A lot of family there.  Nice personal milestone.

As more dates come in, I’ll keep you posted.

African-American Short Films


I’ll keep this one short and sweet…

The syndicated program “African-American Short Films” has selected “Lady In My Life” as one of its featured films for this quarter.  Like many of you, I’ve caught the show on a Sunday afternoon when it comes on; I’m tremendously humbled and thrilled to have my film be a part of it.

This weekend the show will be playing in the Twin Cities and Lansing:

Minneapolis-St. Paul  Station: KSTC / IND   Date: 11/06 Time: 2:00AM

Lansing  Station: WSYM / FOX   Date: 11/07 Time: 1:00AM

In the next couple of weeks, Chicago, Montgomery/Selma, and Tampa/St. Pete have their episodes air. I’ll promo those markets as they approach.

Again, thank you to everyone who has supported this project over this life cycle.  I’m truly blessed.

Have a great weekend!
