"Jonah and the Great Fish"

Right now, I'm acting in a play called Jonah and the Great Fish. It's playing at the SCERA theater in Orem (click the link for info on tickets and showtimes). It's being produced by Liken, and they're shooting the film version back-to-back with the stage production. It's a fun show, and it's been a great experience getting to know some of the cast members (it's an amazingly talented cast) and getting involved with Liken, which is a very cool part of the Mormon media world right now.

Here's the first review of the show, and a story on the production from ABC 4's site.

Barton Fink

Sorry, for anyone who happened to start it (assuming such people exist, and that any of them were interested in ever finishing it), that I still haven't posted the latter half of the short story "Sinners." It will happen someday.

In the meantime, here's me in a BYU student film project--a 319 directing project (an exercise before one's final senior project as a director) in which the student takes a scene from a pre-existing script (in this case, the Coen brothers' Barton Fink), and reshoot it (casting, shooting, editing, etc.). This was how I spent one strange morning in November, from midnight till about 5am. Enjoy
