First Viral Video

So yesterday night I received an email from youtube asking me to share revenue on the last video I posted up which was Gas Guzzlers Part 2. After researching all of what that meant I found out that while I may not be partnered with them, I still will be able to get money from this video. I feel as though I have completely broke the rules when it comes to viral video though, because most of the time you see a quick little five second thing of someone getting hurt, but this is a fifteen minute monster, that somehow sky rocketed in views so much that it grabbed the attention of youtube. I have to say this is amazing news and I have no one to thank than all of you guys who follow my work and make it what it is!

Thanks so much guys!

Lunar Eclipse

A video of the Lunar Eclipse from earlier in the week. Nothing really crazy, just wanted to see one. It is very beautiful, so much so that even this camera really can't do it justice.

Sunday, December 19, 2010

So a little over a week after the big premiere of Gas Guzzlers at Towson University, I am now posting up Part One of the film on youtube. I am posting each part in 15 minute intervals, which will break the film down into three parts. Every saturday either at midnight or around midnight I will be putting it up.

Enjoy Part One!

Thanks Everyone!


I would like to personally thank everyone for coming out the Gas Guzzlers premiere last night. The night turned out to be really fun and amazing. I was so happy to see all the work come together on that giant HD screen. Special thanks goes out to my entire family, my friends, Ashley, Joe, Jordan, Hector, Zach, Chad, Dr. Faller, and the entire EMF department at Towson University.

In addition to that tonight I have a new short film for everyone to see entitled break down which also premiered alongside Gas Guzzlers last night. Check it out in the link below.

Premiere Night

Tonight is the big premiere of Gas Guzzlers. After three months of filming and two months of editing I have my event! It is being held at Towson University in Van Bokkelen Hall room 204 from 7 to 9pm. Before Gas Guzzlers I will be showing a collection of short films and documentaries I have done all with my newest HD camcorder. Short films include Breakdown and a collection of my favorite True Docs episodes from this summer. That will be going on from about 7 to 8. At a little after 8 that is when I will be showing Gas Guzzlers!

It has been a journey to say the least getting to this point. Through a rough semester and a few surprise hurdles. I will not dwell on those obstacles now because I have overcome all of my obstacles and now I get to see my film and short films on a giant theater sized screen. It is something that many student filmmakers do not get to see, so I will enjoy it!

Everyone wish me luck for a smooth night and I hope to see you all there,
Dan H.

New Shirt Designs

It has been a while since anything has been updated with the merch site for To Tony Productions but today I decided to add a few holiday themed shirts and hoodies to the site. I guess it was the big Thanksgiving dinner and all the talk of Christmas that put me in the mood. Click on the link above to get to the merch site.

Also currently I have been working on my next short film Breakdown which will premiere along with Gas Guzzlers on December 10th at 7pm. I would say I am about 50% done with the shooting, after that I am going to be trying to change around my editing style to come out with a product unlike anything I have done to date.

I am always trying to reinvent myself and hopefully the risk I am taking with this short will pay off.

Things here at To Tony Productions have been painfully slow to say the least. With school at the craziest point it has been at I have been completely consumed. I have to make a short film for school and this wednesday should be the start of the film. It is going to be a short centered around one character, with probably a maximum of two characters in the whole film. I am expecting the film to be about 15 minutes long, or shorter.

Gas Guzzlers is done and I am hoping to get a theater screening of this film at my school at Towson U. Tomorrow I am meeting with the head of the department about renting out the school's mini theater for a one night showing of the film. Hopefully everything will work out...

Really not too much else going on right now, I am just trying to get life situated and I am saving up to get an SG - Blade lens adapter for my camera. Once I get that, my films will look even more stunning and professional.

Keep up the support and Thank you all,
Dan H.

2 Videos In 1

This week has been a busy one. On early Friday morning I did a review of Paranormal Activity 2 which has had good reception among people. On Saturday I visited a local bookstore/cafe (Shallow Creek to be exact) and recorded a friend of mine performing. Another old friend happened to be there and I recorded his set as well. Out of a nice night of performances I managed to get two videos out of it. The first is a cover of Would? by Alice In Chains as performed by Joe Doty. The next is a cover of Yesterday by The Beatles which was a duet by both Joe Doty and Chad Shoemaker. They were both amazing.

Chad is leaving for Florida soon and it is a very sad time as he was an actor in my film Gas Guzzlers, which has been an amazing success so far. I only wish him the best in his future acting endeavors.

Paranormal Activity 2 Review

So last night I saw the advanced screening of Paranormal Activity 2. I came home that night, a little jumpy as I was from the first one. I went straight up to my room and decided to do this review. Filmed at like 4 a.m. this review was worth it for me. The link will be below check it out for sure.

Also new is the fact that To Tony Productions now has a photobucket account where you can get all the cool logos that I have designed for your desktop background or otherwise. Stop on by and download some pics!

Old Blizzard Video

So this past winter season in Maryland was probably one of the worst...if not THE worst ever. With a ton of snow storms and one of the biggest blizzards in recent memory we got hit hard. On February 9, 2010 myself and my close friend Hector decided to go out in the storm. Along with us we brought a camera and plenty of sledding gear. It was a crazy day that day and I wish we could have filmed more but the extreme cold left my camera not even able to film. We got mild frostbite and enjoyed a huge meal at Denny's but at least we got most of it on camera. This coming winter season I only hope can be as crazy, because those are the best memories. Enjoy this short blizzard diary.

My new short film entitled Breakdown is now up on youtube. The short film is all about the end of a relationship and the toll that it takes on a person. I do not use any actors or dialogue to convey this emotion, only video and music. I wanted to make this short as disjointed as possible and the decision to use no actors I think only adds to the artistic value of the piece. I hope that you can feel what I feel when I watch this short film.

Remebering a Great Woman

Nancy Hart was my grandmother, friend, and inspiration. Nancy was always there for me all throughout my life. She would babysit me from birth until I got old enough to be home by myself. She was a woman who would give me the best advice, and would show me a more positive way of seeing the world. When I was bullied in school she showed me that aggression was never the answer, and that the Lord was there to help me and that he would. She taught me the importance of things like the bible and religion in life. Although I now do not fully believe in organized religion she still accepted me for who I was. That was the other thing she taught me so well...acceptance of others was a value she placed very high. She showed me not to pass judgment on people. She died not too long ago today and I will never forget the special place that she has in my heart. I know she was very close to Tony and I know that now she will be able to find him and once again they can be happy together.

In many ways the film that I did this summer "Gas Guzzlers," took a lot from what she taught me in life and I always wanted nothing more than to show her the film and now I can't. I did a True Docs this summer where I interviewed her about family and I am so happy to have film of her that will live on and carry on her many messages. I hope that she is proud of what I have done and I always want her to know that I love her very much.

Let Me In review

So for the first time I am trying out something new on my other youtube channel. I posted up a review of the film "Let Me In," directed by Matt Reeves. I have been wanting to try a film review for a while so I figured why not? In addition to this review tomorrow I am posting up a super short film that I did for a class entitled "Breakdown," that will be up tomorrow at midnight. Below will be links to the video and my main youtube channel where you can catch up on my past work.

Been a while...

Well it has been a little while since I posted up anything new. So here is the 411 over at To Tony Productions. Right now I just got done making a cinema style introduction for a short film in my video production class. That intro will be put up on youtube this Sunday at midnight. Also as far as Gas Guzzlers I finished re filming the last scene about a week ago, however I have not really had too much time to mess with things in the editing room. Once school slows down more or I just find time I will start to mess with it. I promise that it will be done soon though. Other things going on...well for that same production class I have to do a short film, so I can gurantee at least one new short film from To Tony Productions before the end of the year. In addition I have also started a new unique project which takes basically the same type of footage but just on a grand scale and slap that all together into one big video...I have a name for it but the name gives waaaaay too much away about it. Just know that when it is done it will come out of nowhere! Other than that I am just going to be promoting the company and spreading the word.

Thanks fans,

New Designs and Logos!

It has been a while since I have posted anything up, mainly because I wanted to let people find the trailer for Gas Guzzlers very easily. Anyway I have a lot of new logos and designs for the company...

This first one is sort of a representation of the things that have been going on in my life as well as just an abstract piece. In my dark times I have just put out different words that are connected but then disjointed in the same vein as the way the limbs of the tree are...they may all have a common root but each limb sort of goes out on its own path.

In this one I again used the disjointed sayings and words to kind of be a motto for the independence of the company but then use a certain letter in each line to spell out To Tony. I like this one a whole lot and think it is very original and shows the artistic side of TTP.

This final one is a picture of my cousin Bryce who is actually Tony's younger brother. He was born after Tony's death but he is still his brother. In this one I took a very candid picture of him looking at my messed up chair in my room. After a while he got mad that I kept taking pictures and left. I decided to put the To Tony words on his head because I felt like that was a symbol for how he carries a piece of Tony with him and in his mind. I just wanted to do something abstract but again deep.

I hope you like the new designs as I have been putting them up on the facebook page over the past few days now. Don't forget to click the links below for all the cool stuff to check out.

Where We Stand

Ok so basically here is where we stand for everything. First off the trailer is pretty much done for "Gas Guzzlers," I have it all put down and ready, all I need to do is add the little To Tony Productions logo at the beginning and adjust the color of the whole thing. Secondly True Docs is over but right now I am kicking around some ideas with people about perhaps doing a weekly comedy thing. I have done a lot of drama and all that jazz so maybe I can bring laughter to people I don't know. Finally, on Monday I am going to start editing the final cut of "Gas Guzzlers," so that I can send it out to all the little festivals.

All in all this has been a great year for myself and for To Tony Productions. Thanks to the support of Ash, Chad, Joe, Jordan, Hector, Steve, Victoria, and Tony.

So this is the final Teaser poster for Gas Guzzlers. Soon coming from me there is going to be a trailer and an official poster. Hopefully you will enjoy the trailer and everything. Anyway school starts tomorrow and I am nervously excited as always. I want to get into the swing of things because school is where I always manage to write my best stories. I am trying to get an article in my school newspaper so that way people can see all the hard work I put into my summer and all that jazz. Also going to promote To Tony Productions like crazy!!!!

Thursday, August 19, 2010

So lately I feel as though my blog has just been a vessel for all my new products and videos so I am here to finally post up just a lot of updates. For starters my last True Docs episode is going up Sunday at Midnight, this episode will be entitled Enjoy and it will basically be a look back and a look forward. The overall message for my final True Docs is to enjoy life and all that comes with it. The next update is that same morning at 9 will be my last day filming for "Gas Guzzlers," I am doing a lot of scenes up at my secret location...Anyway after all that is done I can finally start to edit the film, finish it, get it approved by everyone involved, make a trailer from that, and then hopefully a friend of mine will score it for me. After that I send it out to some festivals and we will all see where it goes from there. Also coming up soon I am going to be completing what looks to be three different music videos for local rap studio Mania Music Group. More on all that later, time to get ready for work. Wish me luck with everything.

Thanks for the huge support,

Night Time Boredom

Well last night I was bored and decided to go up to a playground and make a paranormal playground video. Completely random but came together pretty nicely. It was funny because as I was shooting the part where you see the blue hanging bar rocking back and forth I was spotted by the cops and had the light shined on me. He came out of the car and was seeing what I was doing. I was shaking and crap because I didn't know what he was after. All he was checking for though luckily was just kids tagging the school with graffiti. So it was a fun experience to say the least to get the footage. Anyway I used the song "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," the Dead Space version and ended it with some creepy kid noises.

Enjoy the video here.


Tuesday, July 20, 2010


My mind is so lost right now. I am strapped trying to figure out a new True Docs subject.

True Docs: Teaching Is Complete

The new episode of True Docs: Teaching is finally done, after a whole day of messing with the sound design, I have finally completed next weeks episode for everyone. It is about five minutes long, so it is a little shorter than this weeks episode but there are no pictures, only film so that is a plus. I think this episode is one of my most well balanced because there is a good amount of B-roll but also a strong interview, so there is really no filler. All to be rounded out by a very strong modern song. Be on the lookout come Monday and support To Tony Productions please!

Thanks guys,

New True Docs

The new True Docs has been filmed and this week the theme will be Teaching. I interviewed a friend of my Aunt today and also got to watch her teach a summer school class at a local elementary school. I am pretty much done editing and will be posting up a screenshot after it is all done uploading onto my computer. Also don't forget to check out my shirt shop and youtube channel if you get any free time.

After the Chaos

So today was a pretty off the wall filming day. The first obstacle was trying to get my cousin to come down for filming, which never did happen and I still have not heard anything from him, I am assuming the worst at this point.

After that though we had to change one of the major action scenes around, to still show tension between the characters, but without sacrificing the motion of the film. Without an extra actor, and little help today, we did a good job.

Special thanks goes out to my girlfriend Ash who pushed me today to really be on my shizz as a director, and I was able to do good.

More filming soon,

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Film Today

I am going to be out and about filming today. I wish I could get another person to film my Vlogs on days like today. I just don't have enough time to Vlog and try and focus on the film at the same time. Anyway only doing two scenes really, just trying to take my time on this film so it can be better. Learning a lot about film this time out. Hope it can just be festival worthy.

Stay filming,

Securing the Next Interviewee

Well today I talked to my aunt about being in the next True Docs and she said it would be ok with her. So if everything works out the next episode of True Docs will be about Teaching. Also hopefully on Saturday I will be able to get another interview in for the episode two weeks from now. I don't know, but if that works out it will be a True Docs first. You will have to wait and see. Until then keep making art.

Busy Ass Day

Well today I couldn't even tell you how many scenes we filmed for the movie but it was a lot. We started at around 9:30 in the morning and filmed for about two hours. We have to redo only one scene too thank goodness. When filming so much at once, a lot can get messed up.

However it was a productive day. I wish I had a bigger crew at times but for everyone being so new, it is working out well. Just got a lot more to do so that you guys can watch a very good short film.

Keep happy,

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

All done

Today was a long day but it will all be worth it for tomorrow. It is the big day for the crew, I have left the whole individual interviews and we are now ready for everybody to come together. I am nervous to be directing so many people but I am very excited at the same time. I can not wait to do it.

Well today I filmed True Docs episode 7, made a new boompole diy style, and got the set decorations ready for tomorrow. For now I leave you with a screenshot from the interview and a link to my new vlog. Enjoy people.

Worked too long today

Well today I was at work from 11:30 to 8 and tomorrow is 8am to 3. However a lot of brainstorming went down today. I have new and different ideas for the new film coming out entitled "Gas Guzzlers." I am also thinking it will be close to a half hour long film. I don't really know though. We will start with interviews on Tuesday. Thinking about vlogging about it, not too sure though.

Anyway more developments coming soon.

How to promote my shirts

Hey everyone. Today is going to be a long workday so I am getting everything done rather early. I am wondering however how I can better push my products. I have 12 items now in my store and still have no buyers. I have lowered prices and have been pushing it on youtube and facebook all week but don't know where else to go with it.

If anyone has suggestions that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and have a wonderful day,

Editing Done

Just got the editing done for True Docs Episode 5: Addiction. It was a tough edit and it is my longest video yet clocking in at almost ten minutes but that is because there is so much information here. I will leave you a nice screenshot from it as a preview but it will be on youtube at midnight Sunday. Be on the lookout for it.

Also I am officially opening my merch store for To Tony Productions today. There is a bunch of merch there ranging from shirts to buttons. If you like what you see please order something. It helps me to fund future film endeavors. Link is: http://totonyproductions.spreadshirt.com/

Check it out and Peace,

Interview Done

Just got done filming my interview with my cousin. It turned out well. The picture isn't as good as I hoped but sometimes that is just the way it goes. More information to come. Time to edit.

Filming Today

So today I am going to film my next interview for True Docs Episode 5. This week I am interviewing my cousin Todd. Going into this thing I don't know what he is willing and is not willing to talk about so I am just going to let him decide that. For that reason I don't really have a title yet.

On other notes I am working on a t shirt shop for the company. Soon you will be able to buy all your To Tony Prodcutions merch. Also don't forget to check out my youtube page and if you want to please add me as a friend or subscribe. The link is on the logo pic, so just click and it will take you there.

Chill Day

So today is just some downtime for me. A friend/intern for the company was supposed to come down today but I had to reschedule due to some personal matters. Anyway I am going to just test out the different picture qualities and how to get rid of some ghosting when I upload videos. Anyone who knows how to fix ghosting problems please let me know.

Mania Music Group's first album Welcome To The Audience drops tomorrow on amazon, itunes, and bandcamp. The people behind all of it are some of the most talented and amazing artists I have ever met or heard material from. When I first started filming at the studio I was nervous as hell but now that I have been accepted as part of the crew I feel like they are family.

The stories that you hear about from artists are some of the most interesting in the world and these guys are not short of that. They have worked hard to make it hear so I think just take the time to see what material they have on the website: www.maniamusicgroup.com. Listen and enjoy, if you like what you hear please buy the album and support great artists.

Thanks guys. VIVA LA MANIA!!!

So today I tested out the manual focus of my camera. I got a lot of footage looking through glass and tested the color options out using the picture profile option on the NXCAM. I got a lot of very pretty shots and have uploaded the footage up to my youtube account. The link is right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jB2npVtb0VM

On another note in the video I use the song "Blvd" by Rapman Ron G of Mania Music Group. Mania is a local Baltimore rap label that is releasing there first full CD tomorrow. Other artists on the studio include: Kane Mayfield, Milly July, and Dappa Dan Midas. You should head over to www.maniamusicgroup.com to take some time and download some of their free mixtapes. With over 20,000 downloads so far they are definitely worth checking out.

Today's Agenda

Today I am going to test out my new Sony HXR NX5U camcorder I finally received last week. Starting with the last video I have posted expect much better HD quality videos and video projects. I am still getting crew together for my next short film, which is going to be a mockumentary styled project. I will be uploading a test footage video up soon so be on the lookout for that.
My fourth video installment of True Docs has now been posted on youtube. Check it out on my youtube page here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6tMpeaxDeM

Let me know what you think.
