I'm in development on a number of short films, and am making plans to shoot a few more shorts in the near future:
- A piece written for myself and my friend Jonathan Hamilton Ragins, "The Mentor" is set on a beach. It's about saying good-bye to someone you love, someone you've helped and that you want nothing but good things to come their way. But good-bye is good-bye, and the loss is nearly unbearable.
- I really look forward to directing a comic piece I wrote, with Vish Vishwas and David King. Titled "Directions," it's about a well-to-do motorist whose GPS has led him astray to a dirt road deep in the woods, where he has an encounter with an eccentric mountain man.
- An ambitious short film written for Ariel Pacheco has a young man trying desperately to change his life, but the easy opportunity for a theft brings about a crisis. With his life on the line, can he bring himself to do the right thing?
And - I've recently completed the first draft of my first feature-length screenplay! Based on a short film script I wrote ("Zach in Mourning"), it follows two late-30's wastrels, Zach and Fish-Lips, as they heroically attempt to get a chunk of money together to travel to Zach's family reunion. There's a lot at stake, as Zach's Mom has had her fill of his wayward life, and gives him an ultimatum to be there, or be cut out of her life - and her will.
Can Zach, with the help(?) of his friend Fish-Lips, get it together to show up, and thereby save his relationship with his Mom?
