Unprofessional Driver on an Open Course

As most of you probably got tired of hearing from me, I recently got to shoot a commercial/internal branding video for a regional arm of Chevrolet. While most of the day was consumed with my usual on-set shenanigans/notes (“hit your mark,” “memorize your lines,” “stop overacting”), one aspect that was new to me was “acting” with a car — I still had to hit a mark and face a certain direction, etc. Except now I was doing it with a three ton vehicle and oh by the way there’s a camera guy’s head next to the pile of leaves you need to drive through, so make sure you don’t crush his head in the process. You know, the kind of thing you’d trust a semi-professional, mostly amateur actor to do.

Well anyway, after a long and fun day of shooting (a day totally free of head-smashing, I might add), we came out with some pretty good material. None of which I’m allowed to show you for copyright reasons. What I can show you, however, is a behind-the-scenes look at my debut as a stunt driver. And remember kids, always wear a seatbelt.

30 in 30, Day 6: Bacardi and Dustin, Together at Last

If you’ve ever met me in person, you’re probably stunned that anyone would ever cast me in a “nerd” sort of role, but luckily I was able to reach deep, deep into my bag of acting magic and give this awesome and out-of-character performance for the fine people running Bacardi’s mobile campaign…

This is a never-before-seen (probably by anyone) performance that will make you laugh, then cry, then pass out from the fumes. Tell all your friends.

if there’s an Academy Awards for mobile tv ads for rum commercials, I’ve got this on lock. Enjoy.

(Bonus points to anyone who spots a former email address of mine in the advertisement)\

The first time I realized what a boring place Los Angeles can be, depending on your location and funding.

That one time I gave up drinking for 30 days and it turned into three months.

The most blasphemous thing I’ve ever written and why Jesus would agree with me.

30 in 30, Day 1: Every Journey Begins with a Single Christmas Parody Video

Hey guys,

College football kicked off the 2011/12 season today, and I’m stoked to be kicking off an event of my own (albeit a less important one). As you may or may not recall, I am technically an “actor,” and while I’m no Carl Weathers in terms of sheer talent, I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a few pretty cool projects lately, but I’ve been looking for a way to broadcast some small parts of those projects, while simultaneously working on ways to push my creativity in preparation for what is shaping up to be a pretty active next few months.  Yes, that was all one sentence. I am paid by the comma.
