After a brief hiatus, we’re back at it again with a new project. Tom Hartley is currently writing a 30 minute serialized comedy with fellow writer Tobias Haze.
The working title of the show is Alterverse and it’s a woman-led comedy.
Stay tuned for more information on the new project including the upcoming Los Angeles table read that you can attend.
New iphone APP OUTS GAY PEOPLE
JUST RELEASED! Spy My Friends.
Now you can activate the camera and microphone on anyone’s phone. Spy My Friends, from Rozwell Technologies, is a new app that allows you to spy on anyone with a phone number. Check out the promo video here and watch Miranda discover her boyfriend on Grindr.
Spy My Friends stars Nicholas Berson, Catherine Mersereau, Mark Labella and Andy Kenareki. Written and directed by Tom Hartley.
JUST RELEASED! Useless Mutants.
“Time is running out for this offbeat group of wannabe X-men. It’s just a typical day for four mutants you’ll never see on the big screen.”
Useless Mutants is starring Lori Allen Thomas, Brock Thompson, Kymberly Stewart, Troy Kristoffer, and Mark Labella. Written and directed by Tom Hartley. Director of Photography Ron Carter.
Like the popular real-time traffic and road alert app Waze, Gayze alerts its users to pertinent information in their surroundings. Is the neighborhood safe to share a kiss with your date? Should you make sure your hair looks perfect for that red light camera photo op? Anything a gay denizen would like to know about his or her city, Gayze has an answer!
Check out the hilarious parody app in its “promo” video!
It’s the kind of hookup app we’ve all been waiting for! Except Gayze isn’t actually a real thing yet.
Unfortunately, for now Gayze is only wishful thinking, but it’s the kind of navigational app that could help even the most misguided and desperate of us find a Mr. Right — or Mr. Right Now.
Watch the technological wonder of Gayze below.
Looking for the nearest pride parade, glory hole, or gluten-free bakery? Duh, just download Gayze, a new navigation and dating app “that’s always on top of gay men.”
Tom Hartley’s queeny spoof of Waze, a community-based traffic and navigation app, Gayze, which sounds like Siri at a Chelsea brunch, also outs perfect strangers with its gaydar feature and gives “skin alerts” on nearby shirtlessness. Sure, it’s a big joke now, but it’ll probably be on your iPhone in two years, honey.
Gaze upon the fake ad that is Gayze.
Êtes-vous prêt pour la nouvelle app gay qui est toujours au top de la culture gay ?
« Gayze, » est présenté comme une application qui donne à ses utilisateurs toutes les connaissances sur la culture gay.
Non seulement elle vous fait savoir si oui ou non quelqu’un est gay, il personnalise aussi ce qui est plus important pour vous en fonction de vos suggestions : emplacement des gay pride, des glory holes… les plus proche.
Bien entendu il s’agit d’une parodie encore une fois hilarante sur les applications de rencontre gays :
Winner of Macha Theatre’s Playwriting Competition Macha Theatre presents a workshop production of a new play, Shades by Tom Hartley, the winner of Macha’s 2013 Playwriting Competition, produced and directed by Odalys Nanin.
