First 2010 blog

Hey guys,

Sorry I haven't been around AnD for a while.  Someone asked me on facebook if I was ever coming back.  So I decided post an update.

In terms of actual work, it has been pretty dry.

Ambassador booked me on some SAG extra work for two commercials.  One for Gatorade and another one for Sears.

The Gatorade commercial, you can't see me at all, but it was a cool commercial.

The Sears commercial, you can see me a few times, but it is very blurry.

Extra work is very boring, but the for the Sears commercial, I was there for like 18-19 hours.  So there was a fat paycheck that came in the mail.  =)

Emmanuel Manzanares was kind enough to update my reel for submission purposes.  Many of the professionals said my reel was a bit long and had a lot of the same exchanges.

Hopefully this one helps me get more work.  There will be a mid-year update after "Those Who Go To Hell" is completed.

Manny released a new trailer for "Those Who Go To Hell."  It will hopefully be done in 3-4 months at most.

Lastly, I had two visitors stay with me. 

Mr. Andy Long from Magnificent Fighters in Germany is doing a full U.S. tour from NYC, Chicago, Minnesota, San Francisco, San Diego, to Los Angeles. 

It was just a coincidence that he came down for my 30th birthday.  Check out my birthday vid below.  A lot of the dialog and random swears are inside jokes among our circle of friends.  So at least try to laugh.  =)

And lastly, martial arts tricker Jim Ng from NYC came in for a week during Andy's stay.  Jim is transitioning from tricker to screenfighter.  ln our fight below, we only worked on very basic choreography for him to get some rhythm and flow.  Jim did a good job!!

We also did some group choreo with Asylum Stunts Chicago.

For now, that's all folks. 

The rest of the year, I will be concentrating on my wedding, my move to Los Angeles, and the completion of "Those Who Go To Hell." 

Stay tuned!!
