Mercury in Retrograde / Rendezvous in Chicago News

I’m pleased to announce that Mercury in Retrograde recently won the Directors’ Choice Award for Best Feature at the 2018 Tallahassee Film Festival. It was a huge honor to receive this award at a fest whose esteemed directors are Steve Dollar and Chris Faupel and whose programming is so excellent that I eagerly watched six feature films and three shorts in two days while in attendance.
More Mercury screenings – in both indie theaters and at festivals – have been lined up between now and October and will be announced shortly. The only one that can be revealed at present is a screening at the historic Wilmette Theatre in Chicago’s north shore suburbs on the evening of Wednesday, June 20. That screening will be followed by a Q&A with yours truly, producer Kevin Wright and producer/actor Shane Simmons. Tickets for that screening are on sale now.


My next film, Rendezvous in Chicago, shoots in May. We are in the midst of raising the budget via the Seed & Spark crowdfunding website and are already more than 2/3 of the way towards achieving our goal! Check out the site here and note that we have some fantastic perks available. Please consider contributing whatever amount you can: a pledge of even $25 is enormously helpful!
