My Silent Film I wrote and starred with my director friend Monty back in 1999. 12yrs before Oscar wining "The Artist" and ages before the Steam-punk movement; this 17min silent film was shot in one Hollywood / Silverlake weekend and won a film festival shortly after we had a star-studded premier party at the "Sunset Tower Hotel" on the Sunset strip with the "Moulin Rouge" dancers from Paris... The idea for this film came about from a musical I wrote & directed @ the ElRey Theater about a cabaret in WWI Berlin. Monty & I were going to make a behinds the scenes documentary about this musical but the idea was too ambitious so we simplified strategy and pulled stories right out of the 1922 "L.A. Times" to write this script (Kenneth Anger style)... I loaned Monty my extensive silent film collection for silent-cinematic ideas & stylings and two weeks later we had the "Birth of Babylon".... The full length feature sequel "The Return to Babylon", has been 13yrs in the making. After the success of "Birth of Babylon", the "Return of Babylon" was able to recruit such known actors as Jennifer Tilly, Tippi Hedren, Debi Mazar, Maria Conchita Alonso & Ionie Skye... I have few roles and am a contributing writer for the "Return to Babylon" 2013.
