Hello old friends.

Housebroken will have three screenings. Two screenings will be in the Boys Shorts program at the historic Castro Theatre. The third screening will be in the Bi Candy program at the Roxy Theatre. Here are the links:
For those of you in or around the bay area, come see it on the big screen! I will personally be at the last screening on June 30th.
And stay tuned. We'll have more festival news soon.
All the best to you.
Guess who just shot a movie? That’s right, friends. “Housebroken” is officially wrapped! We shot for three days here in Los Angeles with a brilliant cast and the hardest working crew in show business and now I’m sitting here sorting through hours of amazing footage.
What happens now? Well, my editor and I get to start cobbling this puppy together. Then there’s sound and color-correction and all sorts of technical magic. Give us a couple of months and we’ll have a movie.
I’ll send out another update in a bit (and maybe even include a lil clip cause I’m a tease like that). For now, it’s back to editing.
Your humble director,
171% Funded! $6840 raised!
I am beyond grateful to each and every one of you for giving, for sharing with your friends... you guys are truly amazing.
From Steak, Dominic, Savannah, and myself, we send our deepest, deepest thanks and appreciation.
The kickstarter page will stay active for awhile and I'll continue to update you on the film's progress. Amazon is currently processing the payments. (Make sure those cards are good!) We'll receive the money in two weeks time and can then start getting those rewards out to you. If you chose a reward that needs to be shipped, we'll be contacting you soon to get your address.
Also, if you're on Facebook, I encourage you to "Like" our page at www.facebook.com/housebrokenthemovie. We'll be posting photos, giving shout-outs to everyone who donated, posting those ridiculous haikus and creating all manner of debauchery.
Again, thank you. Your support means the world.
PS. Watson has asked me to send along his apologies. He misjudged you. You are not at all a cheap bastard. You are amazing and generous and worthy of a big, slimy lick on the face. And I agree.
