1. This is the movie trailer for my latest feature film, ALTITUDE FALLING, releasing July 20, 2010. As an independent filmmaker I believe people in the heartland deserve to see stories about themselves that realistically reflect the concerns in their lives.

    These feature film takes a new twist with the future as technology that exists today is used in new ways with dangerous results.
