Tomorrow night, one of my life-long dreams will come true. I will be making my theatrical debut (in nearly 700 theaters, nationally) as Director of Photography for the political documentary, Unfair: Exposing the IRS. To say this is exciting/humbling is an understatement. I spent almost two months traveling the United States capturing this film, and tomorrow night I get to share it with the country.This will be a one-night only event. So if you’re interested in seeing it, don’t wait. While politics are something I try to avoid like the plague, and this is admittedly a conservative funded film, I took the job because I felt it was a bi-partisan issue. Please know that I have no political agenda by telling you about this film. I am simply inviting you, as my friends, to share in my excitement/celebration of my theatrical debut as a filmmaker.If that isn’t enough, take Chuck Norris’ endorsement. No seriously! Chuck freakin’ Norris is promoting my film! AHHHHHH!!Look!! http://www.wnd.com/2014/10/unfair/Here is all the info on theater locations and tickets:http://www.fathomevents.com/event/unfairOct. 14th 20147:00 PM (Local Time)

I’m always looking for projects that push me creatively, open doors to new genres/film-making methods, and most importantly, allow me to work with dear friends. So when recording artist Steve “Prozak” Shippy asked me to join his team and help film A Haunting on Washington Avenue, it was a no-brainer.
Steve is the producer/director behind the successful A Haunting on Hamilton Street series. A collection of paranormal investigation documentaries that take place in notorious Saginaw, MI. This year’s Washington Ave. investigation will be the fifth in the series.
The film’s premiere will be on November 7th in Saginaw MI, and will be available to purchase on DVD shortly after.Visit www.hauntedsaginaw.com for more info, tickets, and DVD sales.

For everyone that’s been asking and looking for a copy of my MxPx documentary, Both Ends Burning, it’s now available for digital HD download at https://gum.co/MxPxBEB. “Both Ends Burning” is a film that captures MxPx at a crossroads in their seasoned career. Directed by Bryan Buchelt, this documentary not only follows the band’s struggles in the face of the new touring climate, it also looks at the legacy and impact that Mike, Tom, and Yuri have had on the music industry, fellow bands, and their fans. This is one of the first true looks into the life of the notoriously private working class band on the road and at home. “Both Ends Burning” will give you a sense of nostalgia, while setting the stage for the next chapter of MxPx.”

Snaproll Sessions [013.2]
The Static Age - Can’t Hardly Wait [The Replacements Cover - Acoustic]
Directed by Bryan Buchelt [www.snaprollstudios.com - @SnaprollStudios]

"Snaproll Sessions began as a way to capture and share intimate acoustic performances. As I’ve worked and spent time with bands, music is always being played, even when the cameras stop rolling. I wanted to strip away all the production and film these musicians playing their songs the way they originally wrote them. Snaproll Sessions are my way of honoring the artists and friends that inspire me.”
