Teacher of the Year is a dark comedy that I wrote and directed from 2011-2012. This short film was the brainchild of Bobby Moore (who also edited) and myself from just a simple idea that came about. So I wrote a screenplay based on some of the experiences that I had during my four-year tenure as a public school teacher in South Carolina and added a devious element to it. On my shoestring budget I was able to shoot enough footage for the film, with many of my talented friends in the acting/crew roles. Several shots from our first day got erased and had to be reshot months later, the backyard scene was rescheduled three times due to rain (and it hardly ever rains in LA!!), a couple of actors had to be replaced at the last moment due to prior commitments. But Bobby and I went into post-production with high hopes and we are both very happy with the results being my second attempt at filmmaking ever !
