 Sunday, May 13th at 6PM there will be a Baltimore screening of 13 BOX. The film will be shown alongside the other senior thesis films of the MICA Video and Film Arts Department. The screening is free and open to the public. Come and enjoy 13 BOX as well as the work of my fellow MICA graduates!
The screening will be in Falvey Hall, in the basement of the Brown Center at 1301 W Mount Royal Ave.


That’s right, we’re launching a Kickstarter page for 13 BOX!

In the past few weeks the 13 BOX trailer has gotten over 5,000 views! I’ve gotten some great responses and I’m excited to get the film out there. I’d like to raise money to make DVD’s and  to submit the film to festivals around the country.

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a site that can help me reach my goal! It is a platform to help raise money for independent projects ranging from product design, to comic book printing, to video production. I’m trying to raise $1,300 in just 30 days.

Now, here’s the deal: The way Kickstarter works is, I have 30 days to raise this money through donations, but if I do not reach my goal in the given period, donators get to keep their money and I don’t make a cent. It’s all or nothing. You can donate as much or as little as you’d like. Depending on how much you donate, you can get rewards in the form of DVD’s, posters and t-shirts.

So check out the 13 BOX Kickstarter page for more information by clicking the link here.

Thanks for helping to spread the word about 13 BOX!

No not Ladder 49 (although that was a great movie), this is an actual documentary of what it is like to be a firefighter in the City of Baltimore Maryland.

The movie is titled 13 BOX and follows a group of fire fighters working in the west side of Baltimore.

Baltimore while having its issues (like most other places in america) is a great Fire Service host city, hosting the annual Firehouse EXPO. During this time the city opens its doors to Firemen nationwide and host several events.

I have to admit I love films like this! Sure movies like Backdraft, Ladder 49, and Towering Inferno are great for entertainment, but movies like Brotherhood, Still Riding, and shows like Firehouse USA, First In, and The Battalion show the REAL story of what we face as firefighters. Shows like Rescue Me and Third Watch in my opinion are purely for…
