One Year On

One year ago today, we were settling into our comfy seats at the Embarcadero Cinema in San Francisco for the first public screening of “All the Others Were Practice”.


In the past year, we had a Valentine’s screening in Indianapolis, and every month viewers from all over the world are watching the film on demand through iTunes, Google Play and YouTube, Vimeo On Demand, and Amazon On Demand and DVD.

“All the Others Were Practice” is now available on Amazon Prime, so if you’re a Prime member you can watch this truly independent comedy as part of your subscription.

Thank you for your support over the past year, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this little film.

On Valentine’s Day at The Irving Theater in Indianapolis, we had a great screening of “All the Others Were Practice”, but as Tony would say, “Brr.”

Thank You everyone who braved the snow and ice to join us. What a great crowd!

We kept warm with Beer from Black Acre, Delicious Cupcakes from Simply Divine, and popcorn from our amazing volunteer Laken from IYG. The snow kept T-baby away, and we missed the warmth of their Caribbean.

I was so busy during the show that I didn’t remember to take any photos, but I got a few of the space after we’d finished setting up. Thank you Dale and everyone at the Irving Theater for all of your help to put on a great evening.

If you missed the show, remember that “All the Others Were Practice” is available On Demand.

And, thank you Red Nose Studio for letting us show your great short film “Creosote” before the screening.

From April to June in 2013 our rag-tag group of filmmakers and actors traversed the cities of San Francisco and Guerneville, California to film “All the Others Were Practice”. We stole quick scenes on the streets and in shops, and spent entire days taking over apartments.

Here is a peek Behind the Scenes of “All the Others Were Practice”.


Twenty-One days of filming, spread over eight weeks. We strived to keep the actor’s filming days to 8 hours, and most days we did. We filmed all of the pages we intended to on every day, except for one. It was crazy and hectic and impossible, but no one worked more than an eleven hour day, and we were often home in time for dinner. Of course right after dinner we had to schedule and storyboard the next day.

“All the Others Were Practice” is a very small film. There were no equipment trucks, practically no crew, and absolutely no rules. With a lot of planning, dedication and love, this is how we made this film.

The office cafeteria proved to be the trickiest location to lock down. Two days before filming all of the cafeteria scenes, this was as much of a walkthrough as I could get for the location.
