It's very politically incorrect, contains foul language, and is FUNNY AS HELL! I'm not just saying that 'cause we produced it either. If you watched Morphin' Rangers when you were a kid (or any of the cartoons that preceded it and...Read more

Just a quick shout-out to anyone who might be down in San Diego: there's a FREE screening of PING PONG PLAYA down in San Diego at the Market Creek Plaza Amphitheater this Friday (September 18). A little over a year after we arrived in theaters and we still got screenings going on! KABLAMO!
Come swing by and holla at me if you're there or have any friends/family going (plus, I'm gonna have DVDs and the latest Venom Sportswear gear on me for sale):
“ The Constructicon Conundrum”
Over this past weekend, I had a revelation on a topic that has been pestering my subconscious ever since I was a child. A revelation of “bake your noodle” proportions. Now, before I dive into both conundrum and subsequent revelation, let me preface this all by mentioning that if you were not a fan of the original 80s Transformers cartoon, you may find this rambling just as necessary or relevant as those goddamn accelerator suits in G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA (in other words, “not very”). However...Read more
Awwww snap! Another blog entry after several months (after committing to publicly blog more often--D'OH!)! But actually got a bit of substantive stuff to report on.
In the coming weeks, going to have two of our company (Cherry Sky Films) projects hitting the web:
MEGABOT (web series)
A damn funny, politically incorrect, foul language version of POWER RANGERS. Some really talented, young filmmakers (Nathan Kitada, Aaron Umetani, Micah Fitzerman-Blue) came to us with the idea, and we...Read more
A'ight--so I'm not ENROLLING back in school (a la Rodney Dangerfield), but I have been back to several campuses in the last few months for speaking engagements, most of the places which also played PING PONG PLAYA prior to my arrival. Quick roll call: Stanford, Yale, University of Southern California, University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana, and California State University Long Beach.
It's quite cool getting back to the campus life, even if it was just for a weekend here or a weekend there; and even more so, i...Read more
For all of ya'll in the states--PING PONG PLAYA is finally out on DVD! Hit up your favorite online retailer (like amazon, barnes and noble, or best buy, etc.) to get it now! The blu-ray is coming out in another month (Feb. 10th), so if you want the blu-ray of it, you'll have to wait a little bit longer.
I hope to have some news about PING PONG PLAYA in Asia soon, although, from what my street sources have told me, it's already been pirated on the mainland... (BLASTED PIRATES, arrrhhh, matey!) For all you onli...Read more
