Not Dead Update - Travels

Yes I know it has been a while since I last posted. I am not dead or trapped under anything large and heavy, but my 9-5 job has kept me busy with travels and then of course family and kids is a not stop thing.

Let's see.. where to begin? Well Film News first:
Trenches is fully released now and you have hopefully seen all the Episodes.

I truly appreciate all the kind words and support. (still has not released for overseas viewing)

It seems like most of you enjoy Trenches and nothing makes me happier, then perhaps making some more film projects.
I have not heard any news or requests for a sequal or continuation, but Pilot Season just ended and things have been busy. Who knows.
Watch Trenches here:
YouTube and HuLu

In a few weeks I might be going to work on a studio TV Show to learn within their system. We shall see and I will keep you updated on that if it turns about.

WHAT'S BEEN UP:
So what have I been doing?? Traveling a lot for my 9-5 job, teaching video editing and multimedia. This time my travels once again took me to Okinawa, Japan (one of my favorite places) as well as Bangkok, Thailand.

As usual I ate to much food in Okinawa and had a great time with the students I teach. Japan is one of my favorite countries to visit as I love the culture, food and people. It's always fun for me.

Bangkok was hot, hot as usual, but I got some great shopping in and was able to get out of the country just as the Red Shirt protests started to escalate. The Red Shirts stormed parliament the night I was getting ready to leave. I was away in the east for three weeks.

I then came back home for a short bit only to head out this time to the Mediterranean on the island of Cyprus, Birth place of Aphrodite, playground of the Gods. Or so they say.

I ate way to much food.. I kid you not, as I came back to the states 10lbs heavier .. and for me that is a lot. So fat!

The interesting thing about Cyprus is that it is part Greek and part Turkish occupied. So you can speak Greek for a bit, then cross over and speak Turkish and it feels like you jumped from one country to another.

It was fun and I enjoyed a good coffee and Hookah or what they call a "Nagila" or shishain other countries. It's a waterpipe with flavored tabaco like Cherry, Pineapple, etc... the best is apple cinnamon. Since I quit smoking over a year ago, I still enjoy a good Cigar or Nagila from time to time :)

I don't get to see a whole lot when I travel usually as I mainly work all day then crash. The jetlag also catches up to you, but I saw a few sights and mainly enjoy the company of the students and people I met.
So I am not dead.. not yet, Just doing my thing like all of us and trying to play regular life for a bit. Summer Baseball games, cub scouts, paying bills, work 9-5, do household chores, life..

One thing. I plan to take the family on a vacation this summer to Florida and the HUGE STAR WARS party..
Star Wars Celebrations V

I might be a guest speaker there telling all and sharing my filmmaking knowledge as well as pieces of my past films, including Trenches. It is one hell of a great time and the largest Star Wars Event you have ever seen. I hope to see you there and be sure to say "HI!"
George Lucas himself will be there, as well as huge celebs like Carrie Fisher and more!.
Tell 'em, Shane sent ya :) .. Summer is heating up!

TRENCHES - Not overseas

I am sorry guys, but I was wrong. I thought with the release of Trenches on YouTube and other sites that it would be available for our overseas viewers. I was wrong, but I am told Crackle is looking into foreign rights. Sorry, I guess you can do a PSP or something maybe.
