Here we are 3 months after I signed on to produce Vanity (starring Denise Richards, Karrueche Tran and Alex Frnka) with the incredible teams at Canvas Media Studios and StyleHaul. I'm so proud of what we were able to accomplish despite the super fast turn-around and all of the other logistical hurdles that come along with a production of this size and scope. A bunch of make-up palettes, fabric, shoes and a ton of talented people in front of and behind the camera later... the series launches. Now we get to share the first episode of Vanity with you all.

Now that Love in the Time of Monsters has been out for consumption, the reviews are rolling in. I decided to pick out my favorite quotes from said reviews and share them with you. Take my word for it, the reviews are really fun and mostly awesome! I've linked each quote to the review in case you want to read more. But really, who needs more with all of this awesome?

"There are a ton of goddamn Bigfoots walking around, the gore is top notch and absolutely relentless....Love in the Time of Monsters is a genuinely funny and blood splattered film for the ages. That may sound a bit excessive, but I assure you  – it’s not." Read more on Modern Horrors...

"In some ways, it feels like a really crazy videogame where the challenges to our heroes get increasingly harder and more difficult for them to deal with." Read more on Best Horror Movies...

"For the entire 97-minute runtime, I stopped playing Total War and just watched....the sheer amount of charm and fun that is crammed into this movie makes it almost impossible to hate. Even if you don’t love this movie, I don’t see anyone but killjoys and psychopaths having a bad time watching it." Read more on Dread Central...

"Turns out my worries were all for naught as Love in the Time of Monsters is a film able to mix comedy, horror, fun, and gore in a way that is as rare to find as Bigfoot itself. " Read more on AICN...

"Writer Michael Skvarla expresses a mildly genius ability to create a story that is fun, full of energy, and fast-paced with characters and situations that are truly entertaining." Read more on A Southern Life in Scandalous Times ...

And if you aren't convinced yet...

"It's got heart, laughs, scares, a fantastic cast, wonderful writing, romance, assured and competent direction AND a zombie moose. Now, I'm not saying this has something for everyone... hang on, that's exactly what I'm saying. Love in the Time of Monsters is a brilliant fun flick and I recommend it wholeheartedly. This is not one to miss!" Read more on Hickey's House of Horrors...

Office Ninja, he's gonna getcha!

The award-winning comedy OFFICE NINJA starring Jade Carter, Jose Rosete, Francois Chau, Jessica Mills, Robb Padgett and Todd Johnson released on iTunes this week!  I had the pleasure of working on this feature film as a 1st Assistant Director and after budding my nose in... an Associate Producer. We had a great cast and a lot of fun making this film so check it out! 

‘Office Ninja’ begins with Tomas (CARTER), a disenchanted office worker on the verge of a dream promotion. For Tomas and his coworkers-- goofball Raheem (ROSETE), newbie Jessica (MILLS), king of douchebags Jett (PADGETT), and their incompetent boss Daryl (JOHNSON) -- each day seems to blend into the next. But a dark change is coming. After finding out that the office jerk Jett has stolen his work as well as his coveted promotion, Tomas swears vengeance and follows the ways of the ninja in his quest to regain his honor and find the evidence that will end Jett's reign of office tyranny. But of course, since he's not an "actual" ninja, his plans for swift justice may not go quite as smoothly as he planned.

‘Office Ninja’ features an ensemble cast with Jade Carter (JAG, House), Jose Rosete (Age of Dinosaurs), Francois Chau (Lost), Jessica Mills (Awkward Embraces), Robb Padgett (Vampire Zombie Werewolf) and Todd Johnson (Mortal Kombat: Rebirth).

You can now watch the current four episodes of Producing Juliet!  Here's episode 4, 'The Play's The Thing' Part 2.  To see the show from the beginning click here.

When Rebecca meets kindred spirit Juliet, a playwright struggling to get her sophomore effort produced, Rebecca’s tenuous and open relationship with her alluring yet distant actress girlfriend becomes clear. Rebecca finds a new focus and decides to leave her corporate life behind to produce Juliet’s new play. And although Juliet is looking to create some distance of her own from an openly gay actor who can’t walk away from her, Juliet’s new partnership with Rebecca is about to put everyone’s drama center stage.

Made in New York, Producing Juliet is the latest original series from award winning writer and director, Tina Cesa Ward, who brought us the critically acclaimed Anyone But Me and Good People in Love. The cast features award winning actress Rachael Hip-Flores alongside a raft of brand new young talent on the web. The production team includes producers Allison Vanore (Anyone But MeCost of CapitalSOLO: The Series) and Rochelle Dancel (B.J. Fletcher: Private Eye).
