Combines my three passions--filmmaking, parkour and video games! I produced, wrote and edited the film. I also did production and sound design. It was inspired by the mobile game Vector and features a boy playing the game and taking control of a real life avatar. I also played the avatar.

Proof of concept trailer for Wasteland '97. I was writer, director, production & costume designer, sound designer, lead actor and editor for this trailer. I shot this to explore the concept of a film where the apocalypse happened in the 1980s. Production design and sound was a tribute to everything 80s--music, clothing, gadgets, and culture.
