LUMA Trailer

My short film LUMA came out late this summer through Gunpowder & Sky (very cool people!) and it will be coming out soon on a wider platform with some other partners. As part of that here’s a fun little trailer for it. Enjoy!


SURVIVE is in post but in the meantime I wanted to share a few frames from a fun underwater project I'm currently working on.

"Survive" - WRAPPED

That's a wrap on production for SURVIVE. Thank you to all the cast, crew, volunteers and extras for coming out to join us. You all did a fantastic job and I can't wait to share the finished film with everyone. A few more footage stills below.

"Survive" - Week 1

Week 1 of production on SURVIVE is in the can. A few frame grabs below :)

New Film

Been a while since I last checked in but the seasonal winter slowdown that normally lets me catch up on everything didn't really happen this year so it's been a fun multitasking endeavor. 

Since last time, LUMA has been all finished up - I'm really happy with how it came together - and I'll be posting it here soon. POSSESSION has launched on Amazon and a couple other platforms and should be popping up on a few more in the coming months. 

In the meantime I'm really excited to announce my third feature film is coming together. SURVIVE is a wilderness survival film about a young father crossing a dangerous, post apocalyptic landscape to reunite with his family. We've just finished selecting our locations and putting together the cast for it; we'll be filming it this spring in North Carolina. A lot more info on that will be popping up in the coming weeks. Looking forward to sharing it :)
