Hi Gang! John here. So sorry for the radio silence. I wanted to make sure a couple of things were in the works before I updated everyone!

First off, White Creek played two festivals in the past few months. (Middle Coast Fest and Dallas Video Festival) Both were great experiences and reaffirmed that we made one heck of a great little film! The feedback was wonderful and it got us to a distributor!

Devolver Digital is putting White Creek out wide and far in the coming months and we want to celebrate with a local screening in Albany, as well as a screening in NYC. (TBD) So keep an eye out here for information on both. You will first see it on the Fifth Column Feature website, VHX, Google play, well as almost every major gaming console and set-top box available!

PERKS! Lots of folks want to see the film and get their hands on a copy! I hear ya, and thank you for your patience! Making a film is often a long process and a waiting game. I will be fulfilling all perks in the coming months, sending out copies to coincide with our release. If all works out well, the film and perks will be out in the world just in time for x-mas! Keep you ears and eyes peeled!

I can't wait to share all the hard work the White Creek team put into making this film the best thing we've ever made! Thank You for making that possible!!


White Creek Trailers!

Hi all! So sorry for the long wait between updates but I am working hard at putting together a new FCF home office and putting all the finishing post production touches on White Creek. All is going great and we are very close to being done!

To wet your whistles, I give you all three White Creek trailers. The film really centers around the three family members so it only seemed fitting to give each character their own trailer!

Enjoy and stay tuned!

Updates, Behind-The-Scenes, and Black Creek Screenings

Hi all! So it's been one hell of a spring/summer so far. We wrapped principle photography on White Creek and started the post-production phase! I have retreated to a dark, windowless room for the months of July, June, and August, and at the end will emerge with a close to finished product...just waiting for our original soundtrack to be added, and our sound to be professionally mixed. The post production team is assembled and will include a lot of my nearest and dearest collaborators. Sean Donnelly, the DP, is our FX guy and colorist.. Lawrence Basso from Overit Media will be handling some FX and the title sequence. The boys are back in town and doing the original music...that's Dustin, Rob, and Pete. We have a few new faces and in good time I will reveal who they are...but I can say this...they are awesome and exciting folks to be working with.

White Creek so far has turned out to be the best thing I've ever made, and your help was key in making it happen. Another key thing was the cast, crew, extras, and locations that made it all happen.

We learned a ton and had a blast making it! Check out the Behind-The-Scenes Photos at the bottom!

I will soon have another teaser trailer or two up and out to the world, as well as some posts about our final color and sound mix. In the meantime I can pass along the good news that Black Creek, our short film prologue, has found a home on PBS AND at the Maine International Film Festival...all on the same weekend! If you're in Maine this weekend and near Waterville check out the shorts program! And if you live in the Albany area...Black Creek will be playing at 10:30PM Sunday the 21st in WMHT. There's a different opening to the film now...and I can't wait to share it with you all!

Thanks so much for the support! Can't wait to share some of our next steps!

Round 2! EXTRAS!

Hi all! So just before the holiday season we rolled cameras on White Creek for 4 full days of shooting and the results were awesome! Because of you we are creating some of our best work yet! As we move into our second shoot next week I wanted to take a moment to share a few stills from our last shoot and invite any and all to set on Feb 2nd and 3rd to be in the film! (You need to get yourself there and back of course.:-) We have a small crowd scene from 10AM-4PM Saturday Feb 2nd at Salem Art Works. In this scene a line of serfs wait for wood and blanket handouts to keep them warm though the winter exchange they must sign up for service in Josia's new "community". Things go a bit off the rails when a trouble maker shows up and our main character, Katie, stands up to him. A fun scene to help establish the dynamic between Josia, Katie, the community, and Noah.

On the 3rd we have a full day from 12-7PM inside a bunk house where the serfs live on top of one another. We have 3 scenes in total and need the huddled masses still yet to be free.:-)

If interested, contact me here, OR at We will provide lunch and copy of the film...and fun! The wardrobe is very simple....solid colors, the more tattered the better, no logos or denim...think of it as a modern 19th century.
