You might recall a great line from the end of The Shawshank Redemption, Morgan Freeman is reading a note left for him by Tim Robbins. Something to the effect of: You’ve come this far, maybe you’re willing to go a bit father. Well my dear readers, we’re close to finishing the film. But we still [...]
Dear Readers! Kingdom of Gravy is about to go through some very major changes and this may be my only chance to warn you. As we enter a new chapter of post-production I want to thank everyone for their unbelievable support and encouragement. Words cannot tell you just how proud I am already, and in many [...]
This is what the edit looks like. Scott Rankin is usually facing the other way. We give him cookies when he cuts something well. The process is magic.
Gravy editor Scott Rankin and I just produced a sweet parody of the Magnum PI show open for USA Network and their (Emmy winning) detective series Monk. Normally I wouldn’t bring up non-movie related news in this space but today I’m making an exception. This is bad ass in a very silly way and I’m happy [...]

It was so much fun I could cry. We wrapped on Friday night, and at the risk of turning some of you off with some supremely gushy sentimental-ness: This was simply the greatest experience of my life. I can’t thank you all enough. The talent that runs so deeply through the generous cast, the commitment [...]
As we head into our last day of principle photography on the film I am both excited and sad. I’m going to miss the cast and crew. The impossibly kind new friends we’ve made on location, and the complete disregard for natures sleep cycle. Well, maybe not the last part.
Only two days left of filming, and that’s it. We wrapped around 2am this morning and I may be seeing double. Lynn and James are truly two of the most talented actors I’ve ever worked with. Okay, sleep calls, to sate you dear reader, pictures from the set.
Wait, what? Thunderbird? Weren’t we looking for a Cadillac Eldorado…? The shortest answer to all of this, and I hope you agree, is that this 1966 T-Bird is such a sexier ride for Lynn Cohen. Vehicle and beauty shot below are complements of our new friend Larry. Check it out. And in other news: [...]
