Writing and Producing Reel!


I wanted to share a quick video showing my writing and producing reel. I don’t even know if that’s really a thing, but who wouldn’t want to watch a bunch of funny videos smooshed into one video? Let me know what you think, and if you want to see any of the full clips. The final clip is from an anime I’m recutting/redubbing.

I’m working on an article about the best movie trailers I’ve ever seen. I hope to have that up soon!

Upcoming projects:

Shownozawhat: REDUX
Pronounced SHOW-NO-ZUH-WHAT, this is an original anime using footage from the ’80s anime, Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs. It tells the story of three disenchanted millennials who are chosen by a universe-wide organization to destroy the universe.

Here’s a brief clip: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yuz0c9bs052jxej/Shownoza…

Astro-not, an Audio Sitcom
Astro-not is just like your favorite sitcom that you watch on TV or Netflix, except it’s only audio, available as a podcast.

Beat It: Breaking Down Movies, Beat by Beat
A screenwriting podcast where each episode breaks down a movie’s main 15 story beats (as per ‘Save the Cat’). A resource for aspiring screenwriters, storytellers, and people who just love movies.

Past Projects:

A 30 minute podcast hosted by Joe Cabello (writer, Five @ 305) and Brenden Leigh (BrendenLeigh.com) where we talk about all things movies, video games, and pop culture, and get real on topics like race and gender.

We’re taking a hiatus until after Astro-not is released, but we currently have more than 15 episodes you can go back and enjoy. I highly suggest episode 10 if you’re not sure where to start.

I’m on the Fish Out Of Water Podcast to talk about Writing!

This week has been a little bit busy, so I don’t know if I’m going to get a new chapter of Riz Raru in… The Case of the Sticky Fingers, but I have something almost as good… me on a podcast!

Jeremiah and Ryan talk to me about how I go about getting writing jobs, how I come up with ideas, and then I give them notes on one of their pieces of writing. It’s inciteful!

(also available on iTunes)

Also, if you’d like a copy of my Star Wars parody, Scrote One, sign up for my email list (just click here) and I’ll send you a copy! If you read it and enjoy it, I’d love a review on Amazon.


Fish Out of Water is a comedy writing podcast hosted by Jeremiah Burton and Ryan Tweedy. Each week they have a new guest join them and talk about various types of comedy writing from television to the internet to live theater. It’s a podcast where comedians get to nerd out about writing comedy and talk about what makes them laugh.
