Please watch with HEADPHONES or a SUB WOOFER for the best sound! Crank up the bass.

A couple can't decide what to eat. How about sushi? A heated argument ensues, how can they settle the dispute? Perhaps Rafael can lend his opinion as well...

Sushi is Mayhem is a short film that was inspired by our friends Jesiah and Lauren as they prepared to move to Japan. Before their departure I decided to use them to create an impromptu film about a couple that was heavy with dialogue. After showing them the script they agreed to the project and Sushi is Mayhem was created. The original idea was a much broader comedy that eventually morphed its way into a dark drama. I hope you enjoy!
