After 20 years of storytelling and making music through the impetus known as Darge Productions, I have started a new venture in which to voice the inner conspiracies of my imagination.
Inspired by an old Darge comic character known as the Trench Digger (circa 1990), my new production company aims to wed any number of interested artists, writers, actors, musicians, producers, and varied technologies with a shared desire to present authentic, uniquely independent cinema and musical events.
My focus with Trench Digger will be to write, shoot, record, complete and publish any number of experimental stories, parodies, documentaries, concept albums and historic archives into an online viewing format and optimal listening experience. One of my primary goals will be to exploit my own talents, social networks and life experiences into filmic and musical aspersions that will hopefully justify and lead to a life well lived.
Perhaps things can best be summarized by the Trench Digger's overall life philosophy:
No matter how hard it rained or that he lacked any extraordinary super powers (other than his innate ability to swing either pulaski or shovel with legendary precision), the Trench Digger still showed up to work on time everyday. He didn't complain--nor belly-ache... He tried hard not to screw it up. And despite his anonymity, when there was an emergency and the townsfolk were threatened by peril, the Trench Digger was there and he knew only one thing for certain: he will build that last trench until the deed is done!
Enjoy yourself and thank you for visiting--
