I’m so sorry I’m posting this too late to have gotten the ratings, but maybe you could watch it on Netflix or Hulu or whatev?
First off, exciting news… I’m gonna be on HAPPY ENDINGS tonight! I play a loveable character named Thumb Faced Larry! (You’ll see why.) And Abby Elliott is in my episode. And we fight over Adam Pally.
But more importantly, PLEASE WATCH THIS SHOW TONIGHT…. HAPPY ENDINGS needs your help! This show is awesome if you have never watched it before. It’s got a bunch of people from UCB on it (Adam Pally and Casey Wilson) and writing for it (Gil Ozeri and Jackie Clarke). It’s got Damon Wayans, Jr. Elisha Cuthbert. Eliza Coupe. It’s got an insanely high JPM (Jokes per minute*) (*industry term). We want this show to come back for another season. And it needs help! So watch. Please. Pretty please. With jimmies* on top. (*regionalism). And tell your friends to watch!
Below is a great opportunity for comedy writers!
Hey all my favorite people in L.A. I’m currently working for a web-content company called Break Media (very similar – but less funny – than Cracked.com).
Anyway, they are looking to fill some positions for Comedy Writers. Ideally, these people will have sketch-comedy background/writing experience or else have some well-established web-series or other work. I’ve included the links below so please forward these along to anyone you know who might be looking for work. Couple things:
1) They MUST have links to video of stuff they’ve written.
2) I’m not the decision maker but if I think it’s funny it will get forwarded to the Hiring Manager.
3) Have them email me: email@example.com
Here are the open positions:
Thanks and hope you all are well!

Here is some footage from Andrei Zinca’s latest film. Andrei writes, “It’s a movie written with a set of two brains, shot with 4 eyes and, mostly important[ly], with a big Jewish heart. It’s a story about a personal search for freedom, and I’m in a personal search for some additional funds to finish it properly. The movie will have its opening in Romania at the beginning of May.” Andrei Zinca, firstname.lastname@example.org

Wanna go to Film Camp? This sounds like a pretty cool way to get a short film made for about $4K. I can vouch for most of the faculty and the founder: Tony Spiridakis is a wildly inspiring, multi-talented multi-hyphenate, and Tony Goldwyn is not only Hollywood royalty, but such a talented actor and director, and one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Bob Krakower is a beloved NY acting teacher and Chazz Palminteri is . . . well, Chazz freakin’ Palminteri! http://www.manhattanfilminstitute.com
I have a sense that – last year at least — the directors were on the younger, teen side, and many of the actors were Krakower acting students. I believe everyone crews all of the shoots; last summer they did not have a professional crew. Feel free to contact Tony and ask him anything you need clarified. Here is a link to some of last summer’s films: http://www.manhattanfilminstitute.com/category/videos/. And here’s more info directly from Tony (the founder):
“last summer i started a film institute – for directors and actors to come together for two weeks, i house them, i feed them, i travel them, give them amazing equipment, incredible cinematographers to shoot for them, and faculty to be present to take them through making a short film as if they were really hired to do the job. only difference of course is unlike a job — they must pay for this not be paid. it’s like fantasy camp. someone said that, and i thought, perhaps. what it is was a desire to build a place that gave me a rush like i got at the sundance institute long long time ago - last year was a success. directors got into colleges, actors got into films, into agents offices, some even signed, and some together are making their own films, tv pilots and webisodes. and that was the outcome i wanted. to empower artists to not just wait for it – but to make it happen - so i found a place out on long island to live- a retro motel which is on the water opposite shelter island in greenport ny – and a gorgeous stone mansion to have classes and rehearsals. this is an intense boot camp situation – but – interesting details>
-we only take 20 actors, and 20 directors.
-the goal is to make 20 short films in two weeks.
-once they arrive in Greenport, Long Island, we provide water front housing, three meals, and all travel to and from shoot locations, classes, and screenings (we have scheduled 3 screenings with Q&A w/ filmmakers)
-the average age of the film camp is 28 – we have an age range from 15 to as old as we get. Last year it was 55. we believe that this gives us the best possibilities for ideas, story topics, and casting.
-when directors sign up, i start developing their scripts with them immediately by phone and email – we work for as long as it takes to have a shooting script – so that when they arrive for the first day, they are ready to rehearse with their actors – who we (MFI) have cast from our actors side of the film camp.
-directors will be assigned a professional cinematographer – and have all the best equipment for their films.
-if directors don’t write, we provide a script for them. we offer writers from all over a chance to submit a short to MFI for the chance that we will produce it – we don’t pay the writers, and the writers don’t pay us to produce their work. and anyone can submit. we only do this by invitation, and word of mouth – otherwise, we’d be reading scripts forever.
-the concept for the scripts is this – we call them 3 – 2 – 1′s - 3 pages, 2 characters, in 1 location. for the record, not one of our scripts last year was only 3 pages! but it helps to start out with rules. we also had several films with more than two characters. but again, they understand that for them to deviate from this rule, they have to prove the need is worth it – all decisions are final from the faculty. by looing at some of the films from last summer, you can get an idea of appropriate length for these shorts. we hope to build this up so that eventually we are making 10 to 15 minute shorts – but this is only our second year.
-tony goldwyn will be working with directors in the edit room only – and chazz palminteri with the actors doing one workshop.
-the two weeks break down like this:
first five days: sunday, monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday
directors will work with cinematographers and directing faculty to create shot lists, have rehearsals, and learn on set etiquette and requirements (i.e. blocking, location scouting, prop lists, wardrobe, make-up, physical choreography if needed, etc.)
actors – will work with their directors with bob and wendy makkena’s supervision throughout.
next five days: friday, saturday, sunday, monday, tuesday
shoot 20 films! we shoot 2 films in first half of day; 2 films in second half; no shoot exceeds 4 1/2 hours; everyone crews on every one else’s films. (sounds impossible, but it works!)
last five: wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, sunday
directors are in the edit room and dealing with sound. assistance from faculty is constant. and tony goldwyn arrives.
actors are in master classes with bob krakower, wendy makkena, and chazz palminteri.
on the final day, we screen all 20 films at the greenport movie theater. then everyone goes home (usually in tears… of joy!)
below please find the letter bob krakower wrote to his students:
Dear Gang -
I rarely write a letter like this. In thirty years, I think I've written
less than a handful. This one I'm happily writing for the second time.
Last summer, my inspirational wild comet of a friend, Tony Spiridakis,
started a summertime boutique film conservatory on the North Fork of Long
Island called MFI. (http://www.manhattanfilminstitute.com). MFI's first
season was a great success. Half of last year's actors & directors have
inquired about returning, some of the shorts made it on to the festival
circuit, and actors had some fine work to add to their reels.
The Manhattan Film Institute will meet for its second summer in the town of
Southold, Long Island this July. The faculty consists of Shannon Goldman,
Tony Goldwyn, Chazz Palminteri, Tony Spiridakis, Wendy Makkena, and other
Now, in the name of full disclosure, let me say this: It ain't cheap. But
last summer's experience was priceless. The tuition includes room and board,
as well as class and your own reel by the time you leave the North Fork.
Everything you need to know is on the website. Examples of the kind of films
you'll be making are there for you to see as well. So you can see and decide
for yourself if it is something you'd like to be involved in. Another great
part of the second season - no first season trials and tribulations!
In closing, let me tell you this about Tony. There are very few people who
bring as much passion, intelligence, experience, and hilarity (you know how
I like the fun!) to teaching and film-making. For as long as I've known him,
he's talked about wanting to build "an artistic firehouse." A kind of
firehouse where all you did all day long was get ready to put on a show.
It doesn't matter to him if it is a tv show, a movie show, or a freaking
circus, he loves the energy and collaboration of the creative process. That
process always needs a home. And now, at this stage of his career, he has
decided to build one. I live a life built around the fact that no one is in
charge of me - but for two weeks a year I'm thrilled to call Tony, The Boss.
So take a look.
If it interests you, drop him line at the email address on the website.
And as always, I'm wishing you all nothing but the best -
