Finally after several months of pre-production work and scheduling conflicts we have now an official shoot day for “There Goes The Neighborhood!” We will be shooting the entire film this coming Sunday May 15th! One day shoots are always rough for an entire film but I have put together my usual film crew (Producer Adam Kaplan & Director of Photography Dominic Easter) to make sure that things run smoothly! We had 2 rehearsals with the cast to really work on the dialogue and block out the scenes! I really like how the performances have been with the cast and I believe this is gonna be a great film!
This is a comedy-turned-action film about a DEA Agent going undercover under the name of “Willy Doit” and how he takes down a major drug supplier! Writer/Actor Jason Galotti had originally came to me with another script that we were gonna shoot but we decided to shoot this one first! Once I read the script I thought it was very funny and after a few drafts it became even funnier! I’ve always wanted to direct an action sequence where Federal Agents or Police raid a house so the fact that this is a part of this film is super exciting for me! I’m really honored that Jason asked me to Direct these films and I’m really excited to work with him! I look forward to bringing another great script to life! Stay tuned!
There’s a hot new show on TV! It has everything from action, drama, excitement, and a hint of comedy!The Chicago Code is an amazing show! The pilot aired on Monday February 7, 2011! This show is all about corruption in the Chicago Police Department. The whole background is that this lady witnessed corruption first hand as the mafia and other gangs forced her father’s store out of business as a little girl. She grew up knowing that she wanted to become a cop and make sure that she did everything she could to prevent that from happening in the future. Not only did she become a cop, she became the superintendent of the Chicago Police Department which is the most powerful cop! She does everything she can to take down the corrupt criminals. I don’t want to give away too much but this show is filled with excitement and it will certainly have you at the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen next! The Chicago Code airs Monday nights at 9pm on FOX!
So it’s 12:30am and my friends and I are driving down Miramar Parkway. We get to the corner of Miramar Parkway and University Drive and we stop at the red light. All of the sudden we see this Miramar Police car drive right through the red light with no lights on. We’re like “Ahhh what the fuck, cops always do that!” But then the cop stopped right in front of ihop. Next thing we know one more cop does the same thing and they both get out of the car with their guns drawn. Then out of no where 8 more cops show up! So naturally curiosity caught up with me and we decided to make a u-turn to check it out. That’s when we started filming it. We saw one guy on the ground and all of the cops had their guns drawn. So later on in the night we went back to that ihop for breakfast! Right away we asked the guy that worked there what had happened and he told us everything! Apparently this guy came into ihop with his gun drawn and told them to call the police! I thought this was incredibly weird, why would you walk into a place to rob it and tell them to call the cops? I mean, I’m not a robber or anything here but I don’t think you’re supposed to do that lol! Some people are just dumb! Anyways, somehow the cook and a customer got outside while the robber was still inside. The cops ran inside and got the guy, obviously!
So here’s my message to all of these criminals out there that think they can go commit crimes and not get away with it …. You’re stupid!!!! Cops these days are on their A-game! If you rob a store, you’re gonna get caught! If you murder someone, you’re gonna get caught! If it doesn’t happen when you do it, it will happen eventually! So stop committing crimes and just enjoy your life!
