NEW FEATURE FILMS IN PRODUCTION

 

I've been very busy lately writing comedic, character-driven thrillers for Tubi through their partner MarVista Entertainment, and I am elated to share that I now have three feature films in varying stages of production and post-production, all expected to release this summer.

 

Working with Tubi has truly been a blast. As a writer with theatrical roots, I've always loved over-the-top action and wild premises. Writing these films has allowed me to explore absurdity like never before!   

COMING SUMMER OF 2024

NEW SHORT FILMS IN PRODUCTION

 

Forming my own independent production company, High Risk Films, has supported my passion for directing my own narrative projects.  

After years spent creating content for other people, embracing the creative freedom of independent filmmaking has been especially invigorating. With a hand-drawn animated short in production and a short comedic thriller set to film this summer, High Risk Films is already affording me exciting directing opportunities.

MORE DETAILS COMING SOON

TWO SHORTS PREMIERING

Two indie shorts I produced, Casey Leach's Nanners and Nikki Groton's Shadow Dancer, are both gearing up for premieres this summer. Working on these two unique projects was equally challenging and exciting thanks in part to the shadow puppets, tap choreography, 200 banana peels, and capuchin monkey the films feature. I'm so thrilled with the finished films and cannot wait to celebrate them! 

SCREENING INFORMATION COMING SOON
