Your Ass Is Grass

Right. I’m extremely proud to announce that my production company, Harrow Beauty Motion Pictures, has teamed up with Jaime Byrd and Adam Cohen, of Blind Lyle Films, to mount my third full length feature film, Your Ass Is Grass.

We’ll keep you updated as things develop. Casting, location scouting and (gulp!) funding are now furiously underway.

It’s coming. Or, rather, I should say … she’s coming.

Men of Persuasion

A little short film some friends and I made last year was recently given the 2011 Best Western North Carolina Film by the judges of the Asheville Cinema Festival, the city’s primary fest. Named Men of Persuasion, the movie was written and produced by Jamie Parker, directed by me, and stars Willie Repoley, Joseph Guice, and Rebecca Morris. It’s a dark comedy about two professionals hired to argue two sides of every situation … until their own issues seem to get in the way.

The first movie I’ve directed that I didn’t write, it was a fun experience to be a part of something a little different — a comedy, someone else’s sensibility, and a stylized view of the professional world. Check out the trailer here:
