OK, so that last post has me on this photos-from-the-80s theme. So here's a picture of Jeremy from high school. (I'm not sure of the exact year.)
And here's Jeremy graduating from USMC boot camp in 1985. He's here with his grandmother and younger brother, Jamie.
You guys were never cooler.
I feel like some updates are long overdue and I wanted to start off with what Jeremy has been up to. Jeremy Ward, my fiance, has done a lot of work on my films, helping me produce, do sound, sometimes camera, and, for most of my projects he's also done my music. If you've checked out my trailer
, you may have read that he did the music for 4 of the 6 films on there.
Jeremy also has his own music myspace page
. This is separate from his work with his Suitcase Poets
partner, John McNeeley
. I urge you to check out all their pages but I wanted to draw attention to Jeremy's page
in particular right now, since in the last few weeks he put up four newly recorded songs, Mr. Not Quite Right
, Going Home
, Little to Say
. These are all rough demos but he felt good enough about them to share with the world. I've know Jeremy for nine years now but his voice has never sounded better to me. I find myself listening to these songs not just because I love the man but simply because they're just so compelling. They're all great songs, but Little to Say
is my favorite.
Jeremy has written posts on his page about each page, so if you want to know how he came about writing these songs, well, he can tell you better than I can.
Now onto I Just Want to Eat My Sandwich
. It has been accepted to a few more festivals -- the Comic Arts Laugh Festival
in Belfast, ME (next weekend), the Indie Spirit Film Festival
in Boulder, CO (in 3 weeks) and the Ohio Independent Film Festival
in Cleveland (screening on May 10th).
I also found out through some Google searching, that I Just Want to Eat My Sandwich
was reviewed by The Peaceful Critic, Richard Propes, at the Lake County Film Festival a month ago, and... he liked it! If you'd like to see his review, click here
and scroll down and look for the review on the right of the page.
In addition to Sandwich
, all my other comedy films will be playing at the Comic Arts Laugh Festival on Sunday, April 13th at noon, as well. I will also be giving a brief intro and Q&A after the screening.
Lastly, one of my Sandwich
cast members, Zele Avradopoulos, has just filmed a day role in the new Kevin James movie. Check out this article
on it in the Boston Herald
. Way to go, Zele!
Thanks for tuning in.
