Updated July 21st 2009,
Hi everyone! Derek will be leaving for (and arriving in) San Diego on 7/22 to take part in San Diego Comic-Con! Again, filming will continue for the reality show, which now has a website, www.whothefrak.com. This year's con is promising to be incredibly busy with meetings, appearances, possibly some panels, filming, and general mayhem.
Also, filming for the remainder of "Immortals", Episode 1, will wrap up after returning from the con. Head to www.immortals-the-series.com and find the "easter egg" to sign up for updates; the story is unfolding already through these updates so don't miss out!
Updated May 22nd 2009,
Leaving for Vancouver on 05/24, then a cruise to Alaska on 05/27, when we'll also be filming more for the upcoming "Who The Frak Is The Real Richard Hatch" show.
Also, check out the Youtube site for the movie "Reclaiming the Blade", where I'm humbled and quite honored to announce my fight footage vid has been listed as a favorite! Definitely check out this film...
Updated May 7th 2009,
I'll be filming for SpymasterHQ on 05/09
I also landed a role in the upcoming film "The Tunnel: Blackfire", as a government agent / "blackops" (or Special Forces) operative. I'll post more about the role when I can; hopefully this will start shooting this summer!
Updated April 16th 2009,
I'll be playing the role of an American secret agent for the adventure website, 'www.spymasterhq.com'...!
A cool concept, really; the website looks like it'll be fun. I'm pretty excited to be doing some filming for this...
possibly by the end of the month.
More updates to follow...
Updated March 7th 2009,
Hey everyone... a brief update or two...
Can't go into too much detail (yet!) but I have been contacted to work on a sci-fi project by BLAM! Ventures (www.blamventures.com). This work will be a continuation of a popular 70's era sci-fi show. More to come once there's, well, a press release.
Due to the above, I may be changing plans and making a trip to San Diego Comic-Con again this year. I was supposed to head over to the UK but that may be postponed, but I'll still make it... :)
Also, we've filmed over 1000 hours for Richard's show and this is moving forward; again, more to update when I'm allowed to speak of it... needless to say, I'm pretty excited at the moment!
I am hoping to make it out to L.A., maybe in late April (an exact date hasn't been figured out yet) to train with Mr. Anthony De Longis (www.delongis.com). This will absolutely rock! For anyone who's been even remotely interested in stage combat / fight choreography, this guy is a legend and you've -all- seen his work, trust me. I've been a fan of his work for years and the opportunity to train with him is an amazing one and something I'm not going to pass up!
Trying to work some angles right now on other projects and just overall get myself more established.
So, small steps right now but I appreciate all of you who've joined me here, and elsewhere on the 'net and in person, with all of your support. It means a great deal.
Talk to you soon!

I'm pleased to announce that I finally have an IMDB listing over on www.imdb.com... nothing much there yet, but that'll change. :)
