Pre-production is well under way for this SAG short film entitled "The Idiot Who Loved". Corey has had the pleasure of rewriting the screenplay, networking with many talented actors and crew, and preparing for the lead male role of Alex. Check out the official IMDB and Facebook pages below for updates!!!
Here are a TON of updates from just the last five days! Always moving forward and making progress!
-LA Connection: Had two great rehearsals this week with such an amazing, talented, and hilarious group of people before my Third Improv Show this past Friday! Our teacher Joe Spence is motivating, talented, and extremely easy to learn from. And although I will be moving up into a new group, one step closer to running our own show, I will be finishing up the year with some great friends I've made at LA Connection. Hope we all continue to work together no matter what class we're in!
-AMAW: Another amazing, inspiring BONUS class with Mario and company Thursday night. Definitely building some great connections with some awesome people and learning so much about myself and my work. The techniques at this tremendous school has hugely effected my ability to bring ME to every character and my confidence has skyrocketed. Anybody interested in making a movie together? Let's do it!!!
-Sketch Comedy Co-Op: Our show on February 4th is getting closer and our skits are coming along nicely. Dan is amazing and is leading the charge as it turns out I'm now the only guy! Although a lot of the original group has left I am very pleased with who remains as we are going to kick ass and take names at our performance!
-Auditions Galore: Had a couple of auditions this week and I've never had more fun doing them. I must say that with everything I'm learning at AMAW has only helped me to grow as an actor. Memorization is easy, listening in the moment is easy, and my ability to bring the character out of me is tremendous. I've never been more comfortable in a role then I have since attending Tony and Mario's classes!
-AFI Campus: Got a great opportunity to meet with a very talented group of filmmakers and directors and perform as an actor in one of their workshop classes. Being able to dive into a role I've never portrayed before and blowing it out of the park not only inspired myself but the professor and directors as well. I wish to work with many of them in the future so here's hoping for the best!
A lot of big things on the horizon but that's all for now! Oh and...RISE WITH THE PHOENIX!!!!
September has started off with a bang!
-I am back in the writing room after obtaining some great advice from executives at a film festival as well as a literary agent to alter the 22 minute "The Void" teleplay into a 40 minute script! So I've begun rewriting all 6 scripts of Season One adding more drama, action, character development, and a much larger world for the storyline to take a bigger emotional journey!
-I am now officially INSANITY certified! Not only can I inspire the world through my storytelling as an actor/screenwriter/director but I can now teach anyone to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life as an INSANITY instructor!
-A few auditions are on the horizon with many thanks to Backstage! Here's hoping I knock them all out of the park and I can truly beginning networking with many talented artists in Cali!
-Classes are just about starting up for the SAG-AFTRA LA Conservatory. It will be a very busy month as I continue to hone my craft, work in improvisational classes, and better learn more about me!

It's been a very productive month of August. Learning a tremendous amount of useful information and moving forward step by step into reaching my goals.
-Officially on the wait list for Anthony Meindl's Actors Workshop! It only took one auditing of his LA class and I am fully inspired to know that I have found "The Light At The End Of The Tunnel". This is one of the many paths I will take!
-Met with a Talent Manager and a Commercial agency. Obtaining so much useful information on what I need and don't need for my career. These few meetings have opened my eyes into what direction I want to take my career and I am forever grateful!
-New Headshots on the way!!! With great help from The Void's photographer Mike Allen, I will soon have current, updated headshots to be sent out to agencies and be taken to auditions. And they look AWESOME!
-SAG/AFTRA Orientation and LA Conservatory. I had a great chance to sit in and listen to the professionals as they gave me all the information I needed to know to help guide my career down the best route. And pretty soon I'll be able to attend classes, workshops, and have the opportunity to audition for AFI film projects!
Stay tuned for more updates and thanks for reading!
