50 Famous people with depression

If there’s anything good at all that comes from the horrible news today about Robin Williams, it’s that people are talking openly about how serious and real chronic depression really is. People seem to finally be treating it with the respect that it deserves more than ever now.

I’ve battled this crap long-term off and on for my entire life since I was about 14-15 years old. I don’t mean feeling a little down, that happens to everybody. I mean the real deal. I mean truly crippling, brutal stuff.

This has always been kind of a dark secret of mine, although less and less over the years. I’ve always considered it as sort of a skeleton in my closet, but I’m going to go ahead and let that go now.

I actually remember my mom telling me as a kid that Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters had the same problem, and I’ve always had this strange personal connection to him/them ever since. Knowing that always quietly gave me hope and helped me a little somehow. It was like I knew him a little bit. 

Maybe this list might help someone out there as well.

Keep talking about it.

RIP Robin Williams. (Photo by Jeff Bridges)

Watch me make an appearance as a creepy child murderer…

;)

You can see me make an appearance as a creepy child murderer in this short film by Jean Luc Herbulot (director of the newly released feature film, Dealer).

He’s a french director who did this on a whim over just a few days and for just a few hundred dollars while he was in Los Angeles a while back. 

He really impressed me, and I had a great time with him.

I’m kind of hoping that this is my first and last tied up in a trunk scene, though…

Welcome to my new Blog

Hey, guys!

This is the first entry for my new blog.

I still have a Tumblr just for fun, but this will be the blog that I will probably use more often to keep you all updated about news and events and things going on with me as well as occasionally writing about things that I’m personally interested in.

I’m going to start it off with kind of a weird introduction to myself for those who don’t know me yet.

Someone asked me in a conversation once if I could list 20 things off of the top of my head that I think are awesome.

It could be anything at all.

I didn’t want to take too much time to think about it judge it, so this is what I came up with without censoring anything.

20 Things that I think are awesome.
(In no particular order)

* Abandoned places
* Lightning 
* Old books/Used book stores
* Laughing until crying
* The Cosmos
* WWII fighter planes
* The silent hush of new snow at night
* The Olympics
* The female form
* Forests
* Old leather
* Being around old piers/old boats/the smell of the ocean
* Courage
* Craft beers and ales 
* Ancient ruins
* Long drives alone in the desert without ever seeing another car
* Mastery of anything
* UFOs
* No sound but warm wind whipping in your ears
* Individuality

Stay in touch and check back later guys!

Thanks for stopping by!

I just found out that my alma mater (Art Center College of Design) has been using my short in a mandatory undergrad film class every term for over a year now.

That’s a big honor for me, and that makes my day.

An update on what was my first feature film…

Sitiado had an amazing cast and crew lined up, and we had our first successful location scouting trip to New Mexico, and we were about to cast one final name actor when the main investor shocked us all by pulling out at the last minute.

Fortunately for us, no contracts were ever written up nor signed, and no deals were actually made.

So, it’s on the back burner for now while I continue to work on other things and finish writing my second feature, Monroe Log.
