Just Us Guys Red Video.png

 is about Scott, a gay father, who has mre of a "best-friend-type" relationship with his straight son, Max. When Joyce, Scott's conservative mother, barges into Scott and Max's life, she openly expresses her feelings about gay parenting.

This was my first independent project. There are are few different versions floating around which has caused some confusion for viewers, and I can clear all that up right now. 

In the version below, I made Scott and Max YouTube bloggers. It ran for two seasons consisting of a total of 53 episodes in total (Fall of 2014 and Spring of 2015). I had another 25 ready to go for Fall 2015, but the series was canceled - though never say never. 

I believe that Scott and Max will return - one way or another.

I was the Creator, Writer, Executive Producer, Casting Director, Assistant Director, Director, Director of Photography (with help from Jairo), Camera Operator, Sound, Editor, Social Media Manager, Props, and Crafty. (It looks like I'm a control freak. Getting experience in all these different departments was great, but it wasn't the plan at all.)

Scott and Max's videos/episodes can be seen here:

In 2013, I wrote 13 episodes, each about ten minutes in length, and wanted to film them like a real TV show.

I hired a crew and went through a long casting process. Below are the actors who I proudly worked with to bring Scott and Max's story to life. The project was never completed because of a number of reasons, which is why the video blog version was created.

Below is the first cast of Just Us Guys ever.  

The stories filmed with this cast were designed to be a prequel to the one hour pilot.
I hired a crew, went through a casting process, and was filmed over Thanksgiving weekend in 2012.
