As Dean Cochran in The Perfect Day
Hello Family and Friends!
Welcome to 2018! Wait what? 2018? How did THAT happen? I still feel like we have to wait forever to party like it's 1999! Who am I kidding? I still feel like high school graduation is too far away to even be taken seriously. I remember when I first figured out my graduating class year. Class of '82! 1982?? It seemed like a gag. The 80's? That'll NEVER get here! It was a whole nother decade for Pete's sake! Realistically, it was probably only five or so years away at that point. But five years at that age is an ETERNITY. Now we say ONLY five years. But that's another thing we can only learn by experiencing it: Not only do light and sound change - or seem to change - based on your perspective, so too does time. My elders always told me that time goes faster the older you get. Like many of their quaint old-timer musings when I was a kid, I guess I didn't really believe them. Turns out they knew what they were talking about. So these days I'm racking my brain trying to remember what ELSE they used to say. They always said something about my teeth. And prune juice. And I'm pretty sure the nut inside the apricot pit prevents cancer... or something like that. But I draw the line at buttermilk. Sorry, Peckie. I love you like the father you always were to me. But there is still zippy chance I'm EVER drinking buttermilk. :)
Speaking of stuff they promised us in the 70's... where's my friggin' jetpack??

A PUBLIC GOOD: THE STORY OF MARKET NEWS
I recently received footage from an industrial that I shot last summer for the good people at WILL Interactive. It was another chance to work with one of my favorite people of all time, Lindsey Sitz, who previously directed me in Four Questions and Cowlick.
A Public Good: The Story of Market News is an Interactive Program where you can learn all about how USDA Market News data is collected and used to benefit Producers, Processors, Retailers, and Consumers. I'm not sure how the program going to be used. That's above my pay grade. I don't think it's actually available to the public at this time.
But I am happy to show you my scene, directed by my friend Lindsey Sitz and featuring my scene partner Laura C. Harris.
THE PERFECT DAY IS NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD

THROWBACK - JANUARY 2015
THREE YEARS ago at this time I was opening at BlackRock Center for the Arts in Upcounty Theatre's Neil Simon's The Good Doctor, directed by Michael Abendshein and featuring far too many wonderful actors to mention! Here are a few shots:
THE MOVIE BREWDIO PODCAST
I'll have more news on some projects either finished or wrapping up post-production:
DAWN (JCL Productions)
I'm very excited about my second feature with JCL Productions! I got to work mostly in a very small group with Cindy and Jared and my super-talented friend Erin Nordseth. Jared and I actually have one more pickup shot to get to. That happens. A tiny little five-second shot can sometimes make all the difference. There is a Wrap Party scheduled which will include a screening! I've seen a few finished scenes, but of course I can't wait to see the whole film.
I was not a principal on this project, but I'm honored to be a part of it and I'm certainly looking forward to seeing it. They released some Sneak Preview trailers only for a LIMITED TIME, but they are still up as of this blog. Check them out at CHOICES THE MOVIE SNEAK PREVIEW!
I shot another episode of EVIL TWINS a while back which will air when the new season begins. I have an industrial called CATCH 44 in post-production which is looking to have a cast & crew screening sometime in March. And I'm starting a CLASS this week with Katie Killacky at Capital Coaching Studios which should rock my world! :) I'll tell you all about that in real time.
As always, I'll post any new information on MichaelSigler.com as soon as I possibly can. New developments on LOOPHOLE, THE CABIN and THE FOLLOWER could arise at any time! Make no mistake; As soon as I know... you'll know! So stay tuned! :)
P.S. My Friends! At some point you may have expressed interest in this stuff -- or perhaps I sensed an interest that you weren't consciously aware of? :) If you ever change your mind and don't wish to receive these updates anymore just let me know. And you're out! :)
