Lighting Test For New Short Film

Posted on

It’s now official I am a couple weeks away from shooting my next short film. Details will be revealed but this will be the first film I’ve written, aside from just directing and shooting, in awhile. I have written other things but most of the films I’ve done in the last couple years are ones that were written by other people.

New Year And Stuff

Pre-Production Starts On New Short Film

Posted on

In the works for a couple of weeks but it is now official I will be making a new short film. There will be two that I will be doing in the upcoming months of ones I wrote but this first one is written by Mike Pusateri whom I have worked with before on both DISTORTION and THE INTERROGATION. Mike wrote this and will star in and produce as well. Really excited to work with Mike again. Plus super excited to be back to making narratives again. I love my work but I a miss making films. It’s been too long. I’ll update the progress and will have more details soon.
