Looking for a movie to watch?

My new feature, Bedroom Story, is about a long-married couple who hits a rough patch. It explores modern obsessions—the pursuit of success and happiness, social media addiction, and nostalgia.

Comments from recent viewers:

“The dialogue is just so good. I was nervous the whole time, haha. Nervous because I was invested in the characters and didn’t know how things would end up. Excellent sense of humor throughout.” — J.W. in Utah

“I was thinking about how I’ve basically been on lockdown with my guy for the last 6 moths, and we’ve completely lost interest in every single thing on Netflix, and it’s basically just background noise at this point. But then I watched Bedroom Story and actually felt human emotion again from a film.” — Dina C. in Hawaii

“I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! So many great references and philosophical thoughts. Will definitely be rewatching.” — Alison M. in Australia

This summer, I’ll shoot the final episode of a series about what it’s like to try to make it in Hollywood. It’s called This Fucking Town. Think of it as the anti-Entourage. Below are the first three episodes. There’s voiceover with a black screen at the start, so make sure your volume is turned on.

Below, a short video I made about popular Houston news anchor hottie, Dominique Sachse. Starring my Chiweenie, Pippi.

Over 40? Haven’t achieved your dreams? Dealing with existential panic? You’re not alone. Studies show that all people typically experience a downturn in happiness in midlife, with the lowest point occurring, on average, around 46yo. Social scientists call it the “midlife slump.” I call it bullshit. These super-short videos might cheer you up. Sort of.
