OLD GUY is a 5-part comedic mini-miniseries on the stereotyped images of aging in the media. Inspired by the real-life experiences of Roger Burton (THE JAY LENO, MY NAME IS EARL, MONK, UP ALL NIGHT), who was "discovered" as an actor at age 75, and who's the father of the five sisters, and also starring Peri Gilpin (FRASIER).

Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens is a documentary on gender. Through personal stories of eight kings, queens, and transgender performers in the unlikely location of Columbus, Ohio, the film (to be completed 2015) examines this next frontier -- that of gender expression and identity itself. Illuminating the important distinction between sexuality, biological sex, and gender, KQIB captures how these performers and their artistic community 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 performance spectrum - kings, queens, and "in-betweeners." We had a really successful kickstarter - thanks so much for all your support.
