Baja Film Festival

Returned from the inaugural Baja International Film Festival and it was a huge success. You can follow progress here. Below is a photo I shot of Edward Norton while we were doing his video interview and then you can see me shooting William Mapother on the red carpet.


I’m not great at keeping up with this self-promotion stuff so it’s been a bit but Baby Shoes will be playing in Denver Colorado soon and was accepted into the Puerto Rico International Film Festival. Check the Baby Shoes page here to see the trailer. The film plays next in Costa Rica this month. I’ll be in Cabo this month to shoot for the Baja International Film Festival which is being done by many of the same awesome people I’ve been lucky enough to be involved with for the Vail Film Festival.

I recently shot Behind-the-Scenes footage for a feature film entitled Box Brown and then will be acting in it and shooting more footage in January. You can see some shots here.

And lastly, I’ve taken a position as a video editor for a great company out of NJ named Generic Brand Human. I’m still doing the work from here in NC, however, as well as numerous other projects. So it’s good to be busy with fun work.


Worked on NBC’s Revolution recently and here’s a behind-the-scenes shot. I was a huge fan of the show Lost so it was really cool to be working alongside Elizabeth Mitchell (you can see her in the background of the picture below). She was very friendly and it was a cool experience.

Alycat Pictures Photoshoot

Did a photoshoot tonight with Alycat Pictures and Alyson was fantastic. I highly recommend her for anything you need in regards to photography for wedding, events, headshots, etc…

Baby Shoes was also accepted to the Costa Rica International Film Festival last month.

Baby Shoes Picks Up More Festival Awards

Baby Shoes continues to do well and just picked up an Honorable Mention win for Best Short Film at the West Virginia Mountaineer Film Festival.

Next up, Baby Shoes will play at the Cannes Film Festival among the World Cinema Festival screenings.

Later this year Baby Shoes will be back in the USA in the Hamptons as it plays as part of the AFI World Peace Initiative.

The film is 4 for 4 in festival acceptance so far with hopefully many more to come worldwide as the year goes on.

Baby Shoes

Michael Howard’s new short film, Baby Shoes, will have its World Premiere at the end of March at the Vail Film Festival in Colorado. It will be available here for the general public to see after that time. Click here for Screening information.

There is an alternate version of Baby Shoes that is only 60-seconds long and was produced for the Hint Fiction Film Contest, of which Michael is co-directing. It is a non-competition version of the film and will open the Finalist Screenings that will also take place at the Vail Film Festival. This screening will take place on March 31st at 2:30 PM at the Cinebistro theater. Michael will be giving a Q&A afterward with contest programmer and festival host/actor Bill LeVasseur on the contest and filmmaking in the short form.

Michael’s newest commercial for the Vail Film Festival is currently playing on Comcast cable. You can also see it here. The full promo is available here.
