Life update - I just graduated from the MFA - Filmmaking program at City College of New York. The pandemic put a damper on many an endeavor, but my peers and I prevailed!
I'm happy to introduce to the world my thesis film, Marcel The Muscle Man. It's about a muscular but meek fella who strains under the pressures of masculinity and struggles to find work. After serendipitously landing a circus strongman gig, he proves a talented performer, but has reason to doubt if he's really man enough for the job.
The flick runs thirteen minutes and change, was ambitiously shot in a single room (spcifically, room 290 inside the cathedralesque Shepard Hall), and took a great deal of efforts and energies from a number of fine folks (to whom I give my sincerest thanks) to bring to the screen.
Marcel screens at our program's showcase Cityvisions at the SVA Theatre on 23rd St in NYC.
