I’m working on my first feature film…

My first feature length film!

I’m working on my first feature length film. It’s a goofy comedy, titled, “Dale’s Movie.” Dale is a loud-mouthed character with little to no self-awareness. You know, one of “those types of people” who crinkle their M&Ms bag for every single M&M during a movie? Yeah. Anyway, the script is basically finished. Now, I’m working on the storyboard.

Below are two facebook images I created to promote the film. I had to change the name of the film from “Dale” to “Dale’s Movie” because the title, “Dale” has already been used.

If you have any advice or are interested in my project, please let me know! I’d love to hear from other indie filmmakers to hear your stories!

Stay in touch!


I wrote a feature length film…


“The Dale Movie”

The time has come for “Dale’s Movie” to be written; which will be my first feature length film! Yay! The image above this is the first ad that I made for facebook to start getting the word out. Dale was one of the first characters I got cast as at Huff Theatre in Ankeny, IA. This character represents a loud-mouthed person with no sense of self-awareness. You know, the type that crinkles the candy bags in the middle of the theatre, instead of dumping the candy into their laps and that sort of thing. This type of character is often portrayed throughout the many theatre productions of W. Johnson. We’ll talk about Huff Theatre in future posts. Anyhow, as for Dale, I took the character to other levels. Some include performing at stand-up comedy shows, videos on youtube, and now, the Granddaddy of them all… in a feature length film!

Next post will be about the plot of the film and other important information, of course. 😀

Check back often. Stay updated on the progress of the film. Be involved.
