Wrap on Sunny in PA

Today was a big day working on Sunny, for we were covering a lot of my material. I'm lucky that, somehow (really thanks to Charlie Day) I have a job that I have always wanted. I get to work with lots of people, I get to connect with them, and I get to see things I have a hand in creating come to life.

Best Bar in Philly

I've also been lucky this year in the projects I've been composing for.  So far, my two main projects (Caucasian Chalk Circle and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) have amazing casts: Casts that show up and blow me away not only with their talent, but clear evidence of preparation. They listen to music I've given them when we're not together (and it shows) and then on the first run the music sounds great and exciting. They all sound good and I find it enormously satisfying.

It was also the first time I was on set with Artemis-both of us have worked on the show since first season, and we've worked on a few other theater/comedy projects together, but never been on set together. It's been awhile since I've seen or hung with her so it was great to catch up.

As always, it's sad to walk away from the show-as an actor or musician, or whatever you do that you love, you wish you were doing it again tomorrow and pray to god you get to do it at least once more.

Anyway, as usual, I can't say too much, but this season is promising to be an excellent one and a another step forward in ambitions and comedy for the show.   Find FX on those DVR's!


"I am Not a Moose"

Last summer I worked on a short film called, "I am Not a Moose", written and directed by Jess Brickman (writer for Studio 60, Dirty Sexy Money and The Bedford Diaries).  I had a great time on the film and am very excited about the team of people who put it together and other actors who are in it.

I am not only in it but I wrote a song for the film that is performed in it by my old pal Ian Unterman.  The film also features Kat Foster, Will Greenberg and Edward McGinty.  It was produced by the amazing duo at Vanishing Angle, Erich Lochner and Matt Miller.

I hope there will be lots of good news to share as this film enters it's first round of festival submissions - fingers crossed!
