“Sicilienne” by Gabriel Fauré

This was the composition that was played forty-five years ago at my wedding.

Why is This Man Smiling?

Simple. He has a new lease on life. It used to be a sentence of life in prison. Now it’s life on the outside.
Freedom, for the first time in 50 years. Now he’s rehabilitated. Now he’s helped hundreds of men like
himself to reform. Now he’s a role model – someone you’d look up to, someone you’d want to emulate.
But fifty years ago, he was a serial killer. Not someone you’d admire. Not someone you’d ever want
to run into. Not someone you’d ever want to emulate – unless…

One for the Books in
Michael Jason Allen’s “EMULATOR”

It’s one for the books, all right. Dr. Charlie Sorland, reformed serial killer turned anti-violence activist
and author, is seen here posing with a few fans of his new DVD, Violence is Obsolete. After 50 years
in prison, Soreland has been paroled and is now on the book tour circuit. Trouble is, someone else has
picked up where Charlie left off 50 years ago. A copycat killer is on a rampage and the police are after
Charlie, the one person who might be able to help catch him.

The New Film from Michael Jason Allen:
“EMULATOR” – Good News…and Bad News

The GOOD News is…

Charlie_02

In writer/director/actor Michael Jason Allen’s seventh feature film, EMULATOR, after 50 years in prison,
Dr. Charles Sorland (depicted here with his attorney), is receiving the good news that he’s being granted
limited parole. A convicted serial killer at the age of 18, Sorland has turned his life around. With a degree in
psychology and education, he’s become model prisoner and an author/advocate at the leading edge of prisoner
reform methodology.

 

The BAD news is that a druggy goth weirdo has taken a liking to Charlie’s old M.O. and is killing people
exactly the way Charlie did 50 years ago. Now the cops are after Charlie – for his help.

This is my second time working with Jason (who is one of the best kept secrets of indie filmmaking).
As far as I’m concerned, the secret is out. A fascinating experience. I’m completely blown away by
his consummate professionalism, organizational skills and unerring vision. If you ever have the
opportunity to work with him, do not hesitate. Say, “yes!”

Coming in May…

Michael Jason Allen’s New Feature Film

emulator-poster-web-lite-green

 

…and ME?! Yeah. Me. In 2016, I thought screenwriter and Director, Michael Jason Allen’s film,
“An Idle Mind is the Devil’s Playground,” was both my film debut and swan song.

 

Wrong…here it is, 2019. Jason is at it again, and now, so am I – playing Dr. Charlie Sorland in EMULATOR.
According to the synopsis:

 

In 2003, 70 year-old Charlie Sorland is conditionally released from death row for good behavior and societal
contributions after serving 50 years for serial murders. With a news story on his release and his dedication to
deter others from violence, impressionable Jason Lutra sees the story and takes an unhealthy interest in Charlie.
As new murders begin to occur by way of Charlie’s old m.o., Detective Brent Lowe takes notice of the similarities
and employs Charlie’s help in getting into the mind of his own copycat killer with promises of a full pardon for
the catch. ​While Detective Lowe struggles to nail down a solid suspect, Charlie helps to confirm Jason as the
copycat killer per the undisputed evidence. Charlie’s redemption now depends on whether or not Jason can
divert Detective Lowe’s suspicions to avoid the rap.

 

As with all of Jason’s extraordinary films, this undertaking is a labor of sacrifice and love. You can help bring
