Winner 2013 Best Experimental Feature | Atlanta Underground Film Festival
Winner 2013 Canada International Film Festival ROYAL REEL AWARD

In the fall of 2011, over Halloween weekend, we shot a full feature remake of The Wizard of Oz. The idea came to me from showing classic films to my first daughter, Jane. I was reminded of how, when I was her age, I didn't know the difference between reality and fiction. To me, a film didn't need to be made, it was a world that existed beyond the screen. This idea influenced my life so much so that I became a filmmaker, bringing movies to life, and turning my life into movies. Watching Jane get so connected to the story of the Wizard of Oz, a story that is very much about the power of imagination, and the thin line between life and fiction, I turned to my own world and noticed that my dream of having a production studio, with all of the toys and talent that comes with it, had actually come true. NOMAD Nation is such a place, with the means and resources to turn any story into something real. That is why we remade Jane's favorite film, because we could.
