INTRUDERS is finished and in the wheel of Submissions for Film Festivals. It is definitely a labor of love, My approach to filmmaking is this; You may only make 3 films in your lifetime,so make each one count. Go for the Legend status.
PLEASE CHECK OUT THE Facebook page for it- setting up the Platform for Launch.


Ultimate goals are to write and produce(show runner)a series for FX.Showtime, HBO, or Netflix.

Currently co-directing and camerawork for ALIVE AND KICKING TV(music)
Directed 30 episodes of GOOD WORK NOW! (Access Television show)
Directed 41 episodes of HALF CIRCLE (Access Television show)
Gosh Ive probably Directed 50 episodes of PARANORMAL CONNECTION, given we would tape 2 shows at a time, most of the time.

I have Directed and TD'd (at the same time) over a 150 episodes with Tv shows made at Access Sacramento.

*HALF CIRCLE(conversation)

*Good Work Now! (conversation)

*Listen Up Sacramento (music)

In Production for my last Film (while Im here in Sacramento). I would like to utilize our Riverside landscapes. Have found them with a location scouting-very Cool.

In the middle of Costume Design(Jacket and character attributions-mask/hands). We are lucky to have esteemed Talent Rory Castillo and local talent Aryn Bigler doing some great work for us.

Casting has begun. 1st Rehearsals have begun. We may start shooting next month with what I call "satellite shoots" before the main shoot.

All good.

I Draw, I Paint, I Storyboard, this includes Costume Design, Make-up, Artistic Director, and Production Designer/Locator (see Photos below).

The "plan" is to be an Assistant Director on a major tv show in Los Angeles. I've got a University waiting for me to finish my Math transfer class..then LA here I come. 

My dream project is to:
Work on a nationally syndicated Tv Series, and of course getting one of my scripts on the Big Screen.(with Distribution/residuals).
Hey..you did say Dream.
Some of my educational and career accomplishments include:
a Certification in Television Production, an Associates in Film and Media Studies.and 10years work on the local PBS stations "Art Auction"

Goal: To get a Bachelors in TV/Film Production

I can't begin to tell you the trials and tribulations in the finishing of a- First Film Production.

But this will be the start:

I did achieve the artistic goals, that with paint and actors and sometimes Actors with paint on them.

The running time is 1:22

Lets say, yes I am an Artist becoming a FilmMaker. Too add; I am not a "camera Guy", I am an Artistic Director and come to find;an actor and hopefully an Actor's…

Recently, I had the privilege to work with some people I respect (Jim Bailey & "Richard" from Access Sacramento)on a new music show (presently unaired).

Good day,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( augustinaziankou@vp.pl ) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
Mr. Augustin.

it never stops charming me when you find the "Perfect Fit" for a character you've written on the page. Good Casting brings the page to LiFe.


that "LiFe on the Page" then exists, so we Film that.....and it becomes real for the moment. I would site the Life in "A Streetcar Named Desire" with Brando & Leigh.
