the lost, THE forgotten and the bastard projects.
Some projects may come back. Some may not. Like an idea? Send me an email and let's talk about making it happen.
RECASTED was a site where we would take movies that were 20+ years old and recast them with current actors and actresses.
For example, What About Bob? is one of my favorite movies of all time and is absolute perfection. But, if we had to remake it today and recast it who would you choose to play the part of Bob Wiley? For me, the answer was and is Tracy Morgan. For Dr. Leo Marvin I'd like to see Willem Dafoe play that role (or even Bill Murray as the good doctor).
STATE DOG OF INDIANA began when I realized that Indiana did not have a state dog like a few other states do. The idea was to get an official bill sponsored in the state legislature naming Rescue Dogs as the State Dog of Indiana.
It was pushed to the background as I needed to make a living, but I am not done with this one yet. I think it still has legs (four of them to be exact).
THE BOGEYMAN PROJECT came about because I've been interested in the folklore surrounding The Bogeyman for about 20 years. In particular, I find it fascinating that there is no one single "look" to the bogeyman and everyone has their own version of what it looks like.
The Boogeyman Project took several forms over the years, from a collection of interviews with people to a more recent multi-media curation of people's submissions. Ultimately I never really had the technical know-how to get it done. Image from sunglasses-afterDARK
This short film idea has officially been removed from the Project Graveyard and is currently in development.
TRACKS AND ARCHES was a story that took several shapes before puttering out. The final version was as a graphic novel story outline following three timelines in a quasi-historical manner (1920s, 1960s, and 1990s). It took people and events in Indy's history and applied the same cast of fictional characters to them.
DIGITAL LIMINAL was the first attempt at a consultancy-based company. I still believe the idea has merit, but simply put I was not yet ready professionally to handle what I was proposing.
The name comes from "liminality" which is the state of being on the edge between two spaces. I think that digital marketing and customer experience is close to drastically changing again as advertisers finally move on from simply adapting the old ways onto new mediums and really begin to explore the possibilities of digital marketing.
