Livin' the Dream - with Stacey K. Black

I try to update this newsletter a few times a year, but sometimes sushi calls and I just don't have the time. Bonsai!

Welcome to Trouble Creek, the 7 part Web Series, by Stacey K. Black and Shea E. Butler.

A Small Pretty Town, with Big Ugly Secrets

There's Something in the Water...


Trouble Creek has been accepted into the Best Shorts Competition, the Studio City International Film Festival, and more!

Next screening, Act One "Add This to Your List of Woes," screens on Sunday Nov. 5, in Block #11, at 3:15 pm, at the Laemmle, North Hollywood." We would sure love to see you there!

Trouble Creek has been accepted into the Action on Film International Film Festival, and the Hollywood Dreamz Film Festival, running concurrently in Las Vegas, August 17 - 27. We're screening on Saturday, August 19 at the theatre in the Palms Hotel and Casino!

Although Shea and I were hoping to get nominated for best Web Series... instead we have been nominated as "Best Female Filmmaker," as a team! This should be exciting!

In just a few weeks, I'm heading back to Louisiana, to direct another episode of NCIS - New Orleans! I can't WAIT!

Directing an episode of the new MacGyver series was one of the most challenging jobs I've had to date. It's a huge show, and as always, the schedule is the master of all. But we got it done, and the episode turned out great! Please check it out on Nov. 17, 8 pm on CBS!

Everyone's favorite elite squad of LAPD coppers, is back for another thrilling season! Lucky me! I just finished directing back-to-back episodes that will be airing in December, I think! Check listings for "Conspiracy Theory, Pt. 1," and "Conspiracy Theory, Pt. 3." It's going to be a GREAT season!

Stitchers is a very cool show on freeform (formerly known as ABC Family), and I was fortunate enough to direct episode 4, in season 3, called "Mind Palace." I believe you can find it on Amazon, Hulu, all those online streaming services that we love so much!

"NCIS New Orleans"
Last season, I flew to New Orleans, but not for Mardi Gras. No, I went there to direct an episode of the very cool show, in the NCIS franchise, set in the Big Easy. The episode is called "Follow the Money," and I know you can get it online. It's a big, splashy, fun episode, with a lot of heart and some definite "firsts" for the show. I had an amazing time, and am going back for another in December. Perhaps I'll get out and explore this time!
