STANDOFF BtS

my great friend and writer/director Adam Alleca sent me some great behind the scenes pics from STANDOFF with me and Larry Fish. thought i’d slip them up here for your viewing pleasure.

enjoy it

this is me when i get to work in the am. generally i like a taller chair to sleep in. but they only had the small ones. that’s filmmaking.

those empties were there when i sat down. i swear.

standoff2

 

this lady came and woke me up. she asked if we were filming a moo-vee. then she touched me on the arm. i touched her back. the cameraman took this shot just a second before i yanked her over my shoulder in a move i learned from bruce lee. but this wouldn’t be the last we saw of her.

standoff 1

 

making movies is hard. on this day, i stood up for so long my feet began to bleed. the script girl kept trying to clean it up but i insisted they leave the blood.  the smell of it helps me get into character.  it’s not all fun and games like it looks.

standoff4

 

some movies they don’t pay you a lot. but you do it anyway. so to make some extra cash, i sat on the stairs during lunch and put a cup out. not a lot of people came by, due to we were filming in canadia, far, far away from regular people. but when you are committed to doing what you love, every little bit helps.

standoff9

 

in this shot, i’m pretty sure Fish was talking to me about the script and how i should just only say my lines. but i’m a big fan of spontineaty. i really want to listen to Fish, but here the director is saying something about loading the gun.

standoff7

 

this is my gun. in a movie, i don’t always have to have the biggest gun, but it often works out that way. this gun, in fact was quite heavy. alright this is actually a posed shot. (those aren’t my real tits fyi. these shots are all un-retouched)

standof8

 

here’s that woman again. sometimes fans can get real crafty about sneaking on set. it’s a problem if they start talking while we’re doing a shot, which this lady did a lot. fans: when you’re sneaking on set, PLEASE remember that rolling means be very very quiet!  here, Fish really is telling her for the last time.

(it’s a good thing my real name isn’t on my trailer door. 😉

standoff5

 

child actors require a lot of patience, but this one was so smart. she had a natural quality that tells me she is a star and going to be even bigger when she grows up.     here, the child actor is asking to hold my gun. i told her it was too heavy and she had to wait till she was a bigger star.

 

standoff6

 

that’s all for now. i’ll leave you with the incredible poster for STANDOFF, now playing in select theaters. the explosions in the BG were my idea.

there are no real explosions in the movie, (SPOILER) but since there usually are some explosions in my movies, i think the fans will love it.

SYFY RENEWS THE EXPANSE FOR SECOND SEASON

— Acclaimed Series from Alcon Television Group Currently Airing Tuesdays at 10PM ET/PT —

NEW YORK  – Syfy announced that it has renewed its critically-acclaimed series THE EXPANSE for a second season. The 13-episode second season from Alcon Television Group is expected to air in early 2017.

THE EXPANSE is firing on all cylinders creatively, building a passionate fan base among viewers and critics alike, and delivering on Syfy’s promise of smart, provocative science fiction entertainment. We can’t wait to see where the story takes us in season two,” said Dave Howe, President, Syfy and Chiller.

Currently airing on Syfy Tuesdays at 10PM ET/PT, THE EXPANSE has garnered strong multiplatform viewership since its December 14 debut, with 4.5 million viewers sampling the first episode on Syfy.com, On Demand and digital outlets prior to the series’ linear premiere, and an average of 1.6 million P2+ linear viewers (L3) in its first three episodes.

Set 200 years in the future, THE EXPANSE follows the case of a missing young woman that brings a hardened detective (Thomas Jane) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait) together in a race across the solar system that will expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

The series is based on the New York Times bestselling book series collectively known as The Expanse, written by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pen name James S. A. Corey).

Bradstreet reporting . . . I took a vacation. I’m back. Nice to be here. I have a lot to catch folks up on but I generally let art do the talking . Stick around. Lots of bitchin’ artwork coming. In December I began design on a project for Activision/Treyarch. Pretty cool since I’m a fan of the Call of Duty game franchise. Even got to work on my favorite element of the property . . . Zombies. Like, World War II era Zombies. Like, Where Eagles Dare, except the Wehrmacht are reanimated corpses. I had a blast. Great folks at Activision. Big thanks to my art director/editor, Graham Hagmaier. These guys are amazing to work with. Poster was released into the public in January at all game outlets.

THE VEIL

VEIL POSTERj

 

Here’s some posters Phil Joanou cooked up himself. Probably won’t see these everywhere.

 

Veil.HOUSE POSTER

 

Too bad. I think they’re pretty cool.

 

Veil.THREE FACES1

 

I ain’t gonna lie. I had a blast playing a batshit preacher/cult leader.

Veil2

 

I only wish Jessica joined our cult a little earlier.

 

 

Phil was great. you’ll never see a Blumhouse film look this good again.

don’t know how he did what he did on the budget we had. impressive.

Welcome to RawStudios v3

finally. we’ve got a website that i can stand to look at more than twice.

thank Andi ‘butwin’ Ewington for that, along with Johnny fuckin Walker.

not that JW, friend. the other JW – Andi’s friend. my friend JW took a walk years ago.

This is the site that Andi and Johnny built. they did a damn fine job of it.

two brits, whom i now owe two beers. two a piece. black & tans maybe. i look forward to the day we can sit in that great pub in london. the one with the bear head.

i like this site. we can add shit to it mobile-y. remotely. on the go. apparently – and i haven’t learnt how to do this yet, but supposedly, i can take a pic that amuses me – my breakfast. my cat. my cat’s breakfast – and i can share it on this damn thing in minutes. seconds, if i was smart. (i’m not.)

so minutes. but will i? we will see.

i say yes, for at least   a day.

i like pictures. not a word man. so the plan is to share some pictures that i like. on here.

why not snapcrack? instacrack? tweeter? no. too much going on over there. very busy that place. busy.

there is something going on out there, in the world – something is changing. some zeitgeist is moving in from over the hills, like weather. i don’t know what it means, or what it is – but i do know it is coming. the world is changing. the world is always changing, but the winds have been picking up, lately. have you felt it? the shit is blowing this way, so keep your hand on your hat and your hat on your head. we’ll talk about it. i come across some interesting stuff sometimes. i’ll share some of it here.

i were you i’d check in, maybe once a week. check this spot. my new years revolution is to throw down with some tid bit of gnat shit right here, once per.

when the site goes live i might even send out a twit, to let ya know. just one. we’ll be updating and refining the rest of the site, adding more pics as they come bubbling up from wherever the hell they come from, nestled down in those ones and zeros in the sky. the cloud.

the wind.

meanwhile, friend, it’s good to hear ya. it’s been a while. what news do you bring me from the wide, wide world? i like hearing about it, i just don’t much feel like i want to go there. not yet.

you go ahead. i’ll be right here.

oh, and stay off the facekook.

makes you loco.

 

Wrapped The Veil

Still looking for enough hay to make the horses run in magnificent death.

just wrapped The Veil with Phil Joanou – had a blast.

Alabama was fun, too – first with Mike Flanagan on his film and then with Bruce Willis on a little sci-fi pic that was a lot of fun. I got to play a pissed off cop in a dirty city.

decided to write a film about criminals. the western thing looks like it’s gonna take a while. I’ve had a couple offers but nothing that felt right. you need partners that get what you want to do.

I’m tired. wanted to check in after that long run of filmmaking. now, rest.
