I Just Directed A Lyric Video For Nick Jonas!

Around a month ago I got a call asking if I’d be interesting in doing a lyric video for Nick Jonas’ upcoming single. I immediately got to work and made something fun, different, and visually interesting. The day I finished it, another unnamed artist released a lyric video with the SAME EXACT IDEA.

So I did ANOTHER lyric video, this one loosely Outrun-themed with the lyrics being shown as neon signs reflecting off the car windows. Check it out!

NEW IMDb SERIES! UnMade (2019) | OFFICIAL TRAILER

Watch the Trailer for “UnMade,” the IMDB Original Series I Wrote On!

Did you know that IMDB is starting to create its own original content? I didn’t, but after we released our newest Future Boyfriends short, one thing led to another and I found myself writing on one of their brand-new original series called UnMade!

 

SYNOPSIS: UnMade will follow comedians as they share the inspirations, plots and stories behind their projects and scripts that never saw the light of day. In each five-to-eight-minute episode, a celebrity guest will reveal a pitch or screenplay for an early passion project they were never able to get off the ground. These ambitious, often misguided and always hilarious ideas are then given a second chance, brought to life via a team of actors and a professional production crew. 

 

Writing on this has been so much fun– I got to write for episodes featuring Nick Cannon, Rainn Wilson, Tig Notaro, Paul Rust, Jay Chandrasekhar, Reggie Watts, Bobby Moynihan, Kristen Schaal and even Weird Al (someone I grew up listening to). Look forward to episodes in the near future!

You can read Deadline’s article on UnMade and IMDB’s other new series here.

Joel Adams – “Fake Friends” (Directed by Yours Truly)

My friends at Black Coffee brought me on to direct this official music video for the talented Joel Adams! This is the first proper music video I’ve directed and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it came out. And, despite significant time constraints, shooting this was a hectic blast. I’ve attached some screens below! Check out the video unless you’re a fake friend.

The New Future Boyfriends Short Explains What Happens When “When You Leave The Room”

They say write what you know— and what we know is the gnawing anxiety that everyone we know secretly hates us. That’s the basis of the newest Future Boyfriends short anyway, and we cast everyone we know in it so the secret hate feels real (and also they were free that day).

Because the last few shorts we did have been so action or VFX-heavy, we wanted to do one that primarily focused on dialogue. I’m super stoked on how it came out. Glad to see that I’m not just comedy version of Michael Bay. Michael Bae. Is that something? I secretly hate me too.

“Who’s The Cutest Puppy?” (Starring My Actual Dog)

I’ve been slaving away on this puppy (pun very much intended) for a few months now, believe it or not! Despite the thumbnail and title, the newest Future Boyfriends short I directed and co-wrote is surprisingly insane. Check it out!

It also stars my actual dog Coco, who is a beautiful princess that escaped into our dimension from an incomprehensible cosmic tesseract. And the great Tom Goulet.

An Honest Tearful Apology

An Honest Tearful Apology (New Sketch with Omgchomp!)

Boy, do we love kicking beehives.

  1. Normal Guy starts using Youtube
  2. Youtube makes Normal Guy -> Famous Guy
  3. Famous Guy acts like monster
  4. The truth comes out about Famous Guy
  5. Famous Guy makes grossly insincere tearful apology video

Thus, the life cycle of an awful Youtube star. And recently, it seems like we’ve been seeing a lot of these tearful apologies. Most recently, Toby Turner’s lame offering in response to the hurricane of sexual assault allegations leveled against him.

Omgchomp and I decided to dust off our old “Honest” videos series and say something about this.

An Honest GoFundMe

An Honest GoFundMe (New Sketch with Omgchomp!)

Kickstarter is a platform to raise money to for you make a product that benefits the backers. GoFundMe is a platform to raise money… for you.

Sometimes this is for a legitimate reason– helping someone afford a life-saving surgery, for instance. But other times, it begs the question, “WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR YOU TO BACKPACK THROUGH EUROPE, GERRIT?”

After the success of our first “Honest” video (An Honest Kickstarter Video) and bearing witness to too many unjustifiable GoFundMe campaigns, Omgchomp and I decided to sharpen our daggers again.

Thus, our newest sketch, “An Honest GoFundMe” video.

We had a great time making this sketch and did an outtakes video too!

My Horror Short Film WAKE Will Haunt You. Watch It Now!

Finally, it’s here! My horror short film and first-born child, WAKE.

Here’s the synopsis in case you missed it last time:

LOGLINE: A man must confront his nightmares when trapped in his broken virtual reality machine.

Having shown it to a few people so far, I’ve loved nothing more than watching when people jump watching this thing. This movie is also a huge step for me as a writer– it’s the first film I’ve made that isn’t a comedy. I’m asking the audience to take what I’ve made somewhat seriously. I hope they do.

Here is an excerpt from blog We Are Indie Horror’s write-up of the film (below):

The story is based off of one of Kyle’s among many creative types’ biggest fears, which is letting people down. As he puts it “The film, in a lot of ways, is an apology to my girlfriend for working so much and letting that sometimes get between us. It kicks off with the main character being so driven by work that he tears apart his marriage, and once he enters his broken virtual reality machine, it really gives him hell for that.” His machine is designed to let people live out their dreams, but cannot distinguish between the good and bad dreams. This leads Alan down a treacherous road, where he ultimately must confront his greatest fear, failure. “The main character in the film is based on a fear of my own and one I would imagine a lot of us share; a fear of letting everyone down. The fear of failing. In a lot of ways I think that’s scarier than death because in the moments where you do fail, part of you honestly wishes you could just die right there on the spot. You would prefer death to letting everyone down.”

That about sums it up.

Turn off your lights, turn up your volume, and hug your loved ones. I hope this rattles you.

If it does, let me know on social media:

Good luck sleeping tonight!

– Kyle
