OLD GUY is a web series taking a comedic look at how old age is portrayed in the media. Inspired by the real-life experiences of Roger Burton (THE JAY LENO, MY NAME IS EARL, MONK, UP ALL NIGHT), and the father of the five sisters, who was "discovered" as an actor at age 75. Our official web site is coming soon. Meanwhile you can follow our filming adventures over the next few months on Twitter @OldGuyProject and Facebook

Kings, Queens and In-Betweens is a documentary on drag queens and kings in Columbus, Ohio. Through personal stories of kings, queens, and transgender performers, the film (to be completed 2013) captures how such terrific performers tackle the complexities and pathos of gender expression, personal identity, and human rights -- all with humor, great music, big hair, and duct tape. KQIB will be the first film to include the entire gender psderformance spectrum - kings, queens, and "in-betweeners."
