Email Address for Cast / Crew Submissions:
This production is no longer accepting submissions. Thank you!
Special Notes for Potential Cast/Crew: This will be my third short film to write, direct and produce.
I believe in building a network of fine people to grow with and build a relationship with for future projects together.
I'm very easy to work with and always have the safety of my talent at the forefront of every decision.
This will be an action-packed film with a shootout, green screen effects and camera fly wire techniques.
I hopefully look forward to working with you.
