Co-EP Season 1 & 2
On HBO Max/DC Universe — an ambitious TV adaptation of Doom Patrol, encompassing Grant Morrison’s groundbreaking run on the series and beyond.
Co-EP Season 2, Supervising Producer, Season 1
I’m so proud of this adaptation of Caroline Kepnes’s novel, YOU, for Lifetime/Netflix — and the season 2 adaptation of its sequel, Hidden Bodies.
The Vampire Diaries
Writer, Seasons 5-7, Producer Season 8
I started as a staff writer for TVD in its fifth season, and wrote and/or produced for the series until its finale in Season 8.
Code Duello: Hamilton & Burr
Creator, Producer, Performer
A two-man, fully improvised play wherein Matt Tucker and I recreate the infamous Burr-Hamilton duel, inspired by the audience’s suggestion. A festival favorite, we’ve performed at the Chicago Improv Festival, Del Close Marathon, Providence Improv Fest, Toronto International Improv Fest, UCB Theater, The P.I.T., and on many other stages in Boston and beyond. In 2010 we joined the UCB TourCo. The show was created in 2006 and toured for fun and for hire until 2011, when it officially went on hiatus.
The Wasteland Comedy Hour with T.S. Eliot!
Producer, Writer, Performer
The Wasteland Comedy Hour was a live happening, a multimedia sketch/variety show that ran Fridays in Nov/Dec 2007, in ImprovBoston’s showcase slot. We took four months to produce seven unique, entirely scripted shows. Films, stage sketches, music, interviews, stand-up, and interactive media mixed together in a weird, aggressive variety show inspired by themes in modern poetry… all hosted by scholar and asshole T.S. Eliot!
Peter Stark Producing MFA, USC
Class of 2012
My first two years in LA were consumed with this intense graduate program in the art of producing film and television. In addition to meeting so many friends and future collaborators, I also created several short films, including A Very Short Engagement, starring Marie Lively and Matt Rocheleau, and directed by Shannon Mathers.
48Hour Film Projects
Writer, Producer, Director
I’ve written, directed, and produced a few years’ worth of 48Hour Film projects in Boston. All films must be written, shot, edited and delivered in 48 hours, using mandatory parameters given to all teams within a city or region. Our 2010 entry, “For a Few Flowers More” won: Best Film, Boston ~ Best Writing ~ Best Directing ~ Best Ensemble Acting ~ Best Actor ~ Best Actress ~ Best Editing ~ Best Original Score ~ Best Use of Character ~ Audience Award.
Mainstage Performer, Sketch Instructor
I joined the MainStage cast of ImprovBoston after a few months with IB’s Thursday-night show. We performed two shows every Saturday night, 8:00 and 10:00, at ImprovBoston. The show has been modestly described as: “Blending skillful storytelling, memorable music, audience participation, and joyful chaos, an elite cast of Boston’s best improvisers creates a show that redefines itself with every performance. No rules. No boundaries. Just spectacular comedy and incredible improvisation.” I played with the IB MainStage from January 2007 until October 2009. I also taught in the Advanced Sketch writing program and contributed to countless side projects etc.
Hard Left Productions
Writer, Director, Editor
I wrote a silly interactive “Choose Your Own Adventure” sketch for Hard Left Productions, one of the first interactive uses of YouTube’s in-video link feature. I also shot and edited the piece. The series only works on the YouTube site with annotations enabled.
Fun and dumb: The Oldest Tricks in the Book
My first self-written and self-produced indie television pilot. When Wendy Woodward’s imagination begins twisting itself into real-world hallucinations, her brother Ian must find her the help she needs, while fending off monsters, demons, and landlords. A comedy about the promise and peril of escapism. This independent television pilot wrapped in fall 2009 and premiered in Cambridge, MA.
Freelance Photography & Videography
I photographed performing artists and theatrical works in the Boston area from 2003 &endash; 2010. My photos have appeared in papers and ‘zines such as the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Boston Metro, and Panorama Magazine.
Producer, Writer, Director
I wrote, directed, and produced a radio play… well, audio play, for free publication on the internet. It’s a scifi comedy. Installments were published every ten days on chagoonconspiracy.com from April–June 2007. It still exists in internet archives and features amazing voice talent from local Boston actors.
The Tribe Players
This was my regular improv gig from fall ’05 to summer ’06. I performed every Friday on The Tribe Theater’s mainstage, which was located in downtown Boston, in the theater district, before it shut down in July ’06. The Tribe Players performed short-form and long-form improv, did some fun outgigs, and generally rocked up the stage.
Back in the “olden days” of 1999-2002, I led sea kayaking expeditions off the coast of Maine through various organizations. We specialized in 1+ week trips in Casco and Penobscot Bays.
