Time sure flies. I've been busy with a whole ton of stuff, which I will humbly brag about now:
I've produced a music video for Deltron 3030, a very well known local hiphop group, I've directed and produced my first TV commercial just last week for SF Gate's mobile site launch (see those below), and I'm already making contacts with strategic partners as part of my on-going research for what I hope will become my second feature film (details will come later) - so in short I've been busy.
That said, I'm still editing The Purple Onion. We've received an extension for submitting our film to the Berlinale film festival. It's our goal to have the world premiere in Berlin. It's aiming really high as it's one of the top 5 festivals in the world.... uh so don't hold your breath.
Truth of the matter is we're so low on funds that we may need to lie, cheat and steal just to raise the finishing funds for this film (score, color grading, sound mix, export). Another option is that we launch another crowdfunding campaign, or we may just beg everyone we know personally for a little scratch. Either way we'll keep you updated.
Nearly a year after we launched our crowdfunding and we're still finishing our film. This is now the final stretch. And your support (cash) helped us get here. Thank you.

ps. My recent commercials:
45 second online version:
Hello ladies and gentlemen,
Here it is, our first teaser trailer for our film. We hope it boggles the mind and intrigues your senses, and most of all incites curiousity about what this full film will be like.
We've also got a really solid feature length rough cut now in the works. We've been applying for post production grant money and also post production workshops so that we can complete this film as best as possible.
So far it is looking like an amazing piece of off beat and strange indie american cinema, which is just how we like it.
More to come later. But for now, just sit back and enjoy the following:
All good things,
Matt & team
Hello all you classy people!
We’re still neck deep in editing The Purple Onion but we have something to show you. Are you ready?
Attached is a secret (and super rough) scene from our film. We hope you enjoy it.
And low and behold, pictures from the set:
Stay tuned. More is coming at you soon.
Feel the oxygen in your blood.
Hey there folks!
We did it! We shot a movie! It took us 18 days and a few sleepless nights and some near mishaps but we did it – we shot our movie. And it looks amazing. Seriously, it does.
And because you’re an amazing contributor and because you helped make it possible for us to shoot our movie below is a exclusive frame directly from the movie just for you.
Now we have a whole ton more work ahead to get our movie edited, colored and marketed. We’ll keep you informed with the progress. Thanks again for your support. Stay up.

Wanted to give all you wonderful donors an update about our project as we begin to move towards pre-production.
We’ll be knee deep in the thick of preparing to make our little indie movie in the coming couple months.
Best wishes to all and see you all on the other side, which is also when we’ll give you a heads up regarding remaining perks.
Matt & team
