  1. Here is our Grand Prize winning film for the Savannah Soul Proprietors TV Filmmaking Competition 2014. It documents business owner Ted Dennard and his Savannah Bee Company, maker of incredibly delicious honey, and his work with The Bee Cause Project to educate children and adults alike about the important role honeybees play in the ecosystems they inhabit. This film was produced, shot, and edited in just 5 days.

I am a writer, artist, and filmmaker. I am responsible for films such as the award-winning shorts THE STREET CLEANER, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, and ANTIGONE'S SONG. I direct, produce, edit, and manage locations for film and television, including three seasons of Style Network's Emmy-winning series RUBY, Tyler Perry's THE HAVE AND THE HAVE NOTS, and five feature-length movies the past three years (CRACKERJACK, UNTOUCHED, BREAKING AT THE EDGE, FOUR SENSES, and ABRAHAM LINCOLN vs ZOMBIES). Born in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I now live in Savannah with my remarkable and understanding wife Sarah and two sons Finn and Talon, who astonish me daily.

Telling important stories, and nurturing an idea from concept to completed vision, is what I am passionate about.
