Our New Film, Sunday At Home

Above is our new film, Sunday At Home, a short where I play a college literature professor who squares off in an “academic pissing” contest. I’d love to know what you think, so feel free to leave a comment below.  Sunday At Home is written and directed by young talent J. Michael Moncrief, who played the teenage boy in Robert Redford’s film The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000).  I’d be very surprised if you don’t hear more about Moncrief in the next five years.  Moncrief is a bona fide talent with a robust knowledge of film history, a well-developed directorial eye, and an astute skill for drawing out the best performances from actors.

I’ve also updated my demo reel.  Please feel free to “like” my Facebook fan page.  I really appreciate your support.  I’ve embarked on a tough, long journey, and I’m making solid progress.  Most importantly, I’m having fun and learning a lot!  Please let me know if I can help you in any way (e.g., PR/marketing tips, Spanish-speaking roles, networking, etc).  Bye for now!

Welcome to My New Site

Thanks for dropping by! Today I’m debuting DoyleBrand.com, a site for movie and TV show casting directors, producers, directors, agents, and entrepreneurs to stay informed about my work as an actor-writer amidst the Web’s continual influence on the business of Hollywood. The Internet has revolutionized the way we live, work and play, and the movie and TV industries are no exception. If you’re passionate about the social Web, movies, and TV shows, this is the place for you!

The Doyle Blog is a platform for my creative expression and a social place for visitors to converse with me and each other.  So please poke around and feel free to leave a comment about what you like or don’t like on the site today, or about other topics that pique your interest in the future. Together we can learn a lot from each other, and I look forward to hearing your views and opinions.

I’m also unveiling my new Facebook Page and new designs for my Twitter page and YouTube channel.  So feel free to connect with me on these sites too.

Thanks again and I’ll see you in cyberspace or, better yet, in-person sometime soon!

P.S. I just finished a fabulous shoot this past weekend with up-and-coming director J. Michael Moncrief, who played the young boy in The Legend of Bagger Vance, directed by Robert Redford. It’s a short about two college literature professors who square off in an “academic pissing” contest.  Look out for my Portfolio and Demo Reel to be updated with this material in the next 3 – 4 weeks.  The piece was inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Sunday at Home.  Also keep an eye out for Mr. Moncrief in the years ahead. Trust me, you will hear about him.  He’s a bona fide talent with a robust knowledge of film history, a well-developed directorial eye, and an astute skill for drawing out the best performances from actors.

My Blogging Habits

I’ve kinda been “laying low,” not participating much in blogosphere conversations. (I do have a life full of activities outside of my tech world of work).  I read lots of blogs — check out my Netvibes RSS overload some time and you’ll see — but I’m still really searching for something VERY different that I feel VERY passionate about in social media that REALLY would be worth A LOT of my personal time spent blogging.

The world doesn’t really need more tech bloggers, IMHO.  And I don’t think people should waste time blogging about things they don’t  feel SUPER passionate about.  Or simply because they want to express ad hoc opinions.  (Maybe I just did that, though? Ha!) So, eventually, when I come out of my shell for REAL, I promise it’s going to be something I feel VERY passionate about. And it’ll probably be pretty different than a lot of what we’re seeing in the tech blogger community today.   Til then… who know’s when?
