Lake Alice

Lake Alice is a video sketch team I’m part of with Ryan Moulton and Jennifer Francis. The three of us did improv and sketch together in college at the University of Florida, and our name is a reference to a lake on campus that none of us have any personal connection to… other than that night we ran over an old fisherman and dumped his body in there. Now that we’re all in LA, we’ve been making some short films together, with scripts written by me, Jen’s terrific acting, and Ryan’s beautiful camerawork and sharp editing skills. Check them out!

Time Jumper. This short is based on a live sketch I did with other college comedy buddies in 2007, with the original concept by Filup Molina.

SCARF. A surreal short with a fun twist.

The O-Word. A very NSFW video that ended up being way more awkward to shoot than I expected.

“Oppie’s Friend, Gene” Episode 6

A few years ago in college, some friends and I made a TV show. It was called Oppie’s Friend, Gene. Although it lives on online, for a while it was an actual TV show as well, broadcasted on campus television. Here online finally is the 6th episode, titled “A Cold and Mysterious Humour.” I’m really amazed at what we were able to accomplish — both in terms of writing and production quality — for a group of college kids. You can watch the recent episode below, and catch up on the rest of them here.

New Low

Here’s a clip from New Low, a hilarious film by my buddy Adam Bowers. He shot it in the summer of 2008, it screened at Sundance in 2010, and now it’s set to be released. For more info, check out the film’s website. In this scene, Bowers and I share some crass banter about a mutual lady friend.

Fair warning: this clip has some pretty adult language in it.

Sleep Paralysis Caused By An Insecure Demon

Another special Halloween treat: a video sketch by the very talented Ryan Moulton, starring me and the hilarious Jamie Petitto. I play a guy being haunted by an emotionally fragile demon. Enjoy!

Oppie’s Friend Gene: Episode 5 – The Other Side

In 2009 some friends and I made a TV show while we were living in Florida called Oppie’s Friend, Gene. Created by Filup Molina, starring Cory Draper, JC Currais, Jennifer Francis, and Ryan Moulton, and co-written and produced by yours truly, the show chronicles the friendship of two buddies in their first year of college. We ended up airing 6 episodes on local TV, but we’ve only posted the first 4 episodes online. 

But now, after a two-year hiatus — during which we moved to LA, worked normal jobs to get settled here, pursued other projects, tracked down the old video files, and updated the later episodes — I’m stoked to be able to post Oppie’s Friend Gene: Episode 5 – The Other Side. It’s the series’ Halloween episode, so if you got some free time and you’re in the holiday spirit, check it out.
