We Lived Inside a Dream - New Twin Peaks short film

I've been waiting way more than half my life for this coming Sunday. My favorite show, or should I say, my favorite thing ever filmed, is coming back. Laura Palmer's ominous line from the original show, "I'll see you again in 25 years," is coming true almost right on time.

Last year I made 3 videos to help the effort to "Save Twin Peaks" and bring the creator, David Lynch, back on board to direct all the episodes. Whether my contribution helped or not, Lynch signed on to direct all 18 episodes with the budget he thought was necessary to bring this iconic show back to the small screen.

With the anticipation growing for the new episodes to come out I started to feel that pull again. The creative urge didn't care that I had a new daughter and double the responsibilities that I had when I made the original trilogy of short films last year. With my wife's endless help, and much less sleep than usual, I started work on a 4th short film entitled, "We Lived Inside a Dream": the words spoken by the late/great David Bowie in Fire Walk with Me.

So sit back, turn your speakers up, and delve in a little deeper... into my favorite word... Twin Peaks. New episodes on Showtime starting this Sunday at 9.

Here are the original Save Twin Peaks videos:

Save Twin Peaks (It is Happening Again)

Right after finishing the first short film I made for the #savetwinpeaks campaign, I felt it was missing a lot of the elements from the original series and film.  I sat down and wrote out a list of ideas.  The following video and images were the result of me delving back into my favorite story. #nolynchnopeaks  --m

Save Twin Peaks

Ever since I was 15, Twin Peaks has been my favorite thing ever filmed. When it was announced that the show would be brought back by its creators (David Lynch & Mark Frost) in 2016, I have hardly been able to contain my excitement. To go back to the world that I revisit every year is more than a dream come true. Unfortunately, about a week ago Lynch announced that he was walking away from the project because, "not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done." In an effort to support Lynch, fans have started a campaign to #savetwinpeaks by setting up a petition to be delivered to Showtime. Many have started creating videos to promote the petition. This is my contribution and my chance to pay homage to one of my heroes.
