My full reel. It begins with Short Reel B, plus I have added three complete scenes. These are my favorite three scenes from my three short films. They fully show my ability to capture powerful performances that can tell a compelling story. The first, from One For Another, depicts the main character's struggle with his injury and trying to return to normalcy on his own. The second, from Precious Moments, is the climactic scene. The father comes out of the closet to his only daughter, and is finally accepted for who he is. The third, from The Prayed For, begins the quest for the lead to find his birth mother. He gets a mixed blessing from his father, who is only trying to protect him.
