GOODBYE 2013...HELLO 2014!

Thank you ALL for your tremendous support...wishing you love, peace and a lot of everything you wish for yourselves.

INDIE FILM'S A GO-GO WITH INDIEGOGO
After two years of blood, sweat and tears, and a keen sense of responsibility to the very real people involved in the research for the screenplay, the Astoria Boys decided to go their own way via crowd-funding and private investment to offset the potentially destructive demands of 'the Hollywood treatment' on their film, Thunder Road.
They started off the fundraising campaign with Kickstarter then switched over to Indiegogo...and with a lot of hard work and a huge team effort from family, friends and fans alike, the $250,000 target was exceeded within the deadline. The campaign grew organically and many non-profit veteran/PTSD organizations joined the project, some promising serious funding for the completion of the film. Many hearts were moved, and Matt & Steven Grayhm even sat down with the great Larry King for a PTSD special, where Thunder Road was the main focus.
IMPORTANT: There are still incentives available — such as your name in the film's credits or a place at the Kyle XY Cast BBQ — and you can contribute by check, credit card or PayPal. Visit www.thunderroadfilm.com for full details and project updates.

At just under 43 minutes, this is perhaps the longest interview Matt has done, and it is full of interesting, entertaining and honest responses on subjects ranging from childhood through Kyle XY to the imminent launch of the Thunder Road Kickstarter campaign.

NEW INDIE SCI-FI PROJECT FOR MATT
Matt Dallas has just signed on to a new indie sci-fi adventure called Paradox, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker, Elana A. Mugdan. It will be produced by Paradox Film and Shivnath Productions, headed by Dave Brown and Ms Mugdan. Shooting will commence later in the year, with the aim of completing it for release at the end of January 2014.
The storyline is as follows:
According to the information available, this time travel movie will be unlike any other in that its main plot device is the notion of the paradoxes inherent in time travel itself. It relies heavily on the theory that time is linear and that everything in our future has actually already happened... The director, Elana Mugdan, explains this in more detail in the video (below).

COMING SOON TO THE HALLMARK CHANNEL!
This Hallmark Channel original movie serves as a yuletide cautionary tale about being nice during Christmas, because if you’re naughty, the odds are somebody is going to know and there will be consequences.
In Naughty or Nice we discover that it isn’t always Santa Claus who “sees you when you’re sleeping”, “knows when you’re awake” and “knows when you’ve been bad or good”, as the song goes. Hilarie Burton (One Tree Hill, Secret Life of Bees) portrays Krissy Kringle, a beautiful young woman who nonetheless rejects everything positive about the holiday season.
As if the name she got saddled with wasn’t bad enough, things really start falling apart as Christmas approaches. First, she gets fired from her high-powered advertising job, then her attorney boyfriend, Lance (Matt Dallas, Kyle XY), starts pestering her about marriage; and on top of all of this, she lives on Candy Cane Lane! The final straw is her part-time job wrapping presents and playing Santa’s elf at the mall.
One day, as she’s cursing the fates, Krissy gets mistakenly delivered a crusty old book titled “Naughty or Nice” that’s filled with blank pages. She doesn’t think anything of it, until she recites someone’s name to the book and it suddenly springs to life, exposing the naughty deeds of those around her. Now, no one can hide their misdeeds from Krissy. But it turns out having this power isn’t so nice. It takes a lot of trial and error for her to ultimately discover the power of love, humility, and the wonder of Christmas. Beloved TV veterans Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross of Family Ties co-star.
The What and the When:
Songs from the Official Soundtrack EP are also available!
