star as a compulsive obsessive wine maker in this hilarious Christopher Guest-style mock-u-mentary, "Corked"
which premiered at theSonoma
Valley Film Festivalin April 2008. Read David Templeton's rave review in the Bohemian! "Uproarious... Corked is funnier than the last two Christopher Guest films put together...largely due to Weissman's performance..."
Update, 9-11-2008: the test screenings at the California Film Institute and at The Raven Theater proved wildly successful, and the film is in talks with distributors for a release!
A few months ago, I did a short
comedy/horror film called "We Missed You Pete"(click here to watch),written
and directed by up and coming talent, Ryan McDuffie. The heartwarming story of two pets that take over Peter's
parents' bodies - with deadly results - when he isn't paying
them enough attention...it's a very dark comedy.
I star as
Mark Twain in "Mark Twain in the Holy Land", based on Samuel
Clemens' trip on the first commercial sea cruise from New
York to Europe with a highlight visit to the Holy Land.
It was the basis for his first wildly popular book, "The
Innocents Abroad" or "The Pilgrim's Progress". This
beautiful HD production was shot mostly in Israel in October
'07, and is now in post-production. Look for
it at festivals and on television later this year.
