Project: SELF

What exactly is RSV? The lack of knowledge around these three letters put together can lead to a life-threatening condition for babies 12 months and younger. In this video, we'll profile a family who has seen the stark reality of how this virus could unexpectedly and quickly escalate from a common cold to hospitalization. This profile will focus on their worry and frustration, and the light at the end of the tunnel, by telling the family's story through an interview and photos.

Project: GunForce

GunForce is a stop motion/live video hybrid, action comedy short film (with some puppetry) about 20 minutes in length. I have a rough cut of the movie and am currently seeking two actresses to provide their voices in post production. It works as a sort of parody of 1980s cartoons, using video game culture to drive the story. This is a blueprint movie for a cinematic universe that I'm trying to establish. 

Four army veterans who are also video gamers are recruited to battle an evil army intending to conquer the world.

Project: Matthew Minor's Christain Sisters Chapter Two

I am a small, independent film director from Wadsworth, Ohio in need of two actors.

1. Erik, a young Vietnam veteran in his twenties. I'm looking for someone with an aura of respect and confidence, but has a softer side that shows when his wife is around. They'll need to be available for almost every day of shooting, as there are only a handful of scenes without them. 

2. Lady Elyssa, the mother of the series leads Sherrie and Kristi Christain and the main villain of the story. I'm looking for an actress in her late thirties, early forties (the character is someone who slowly ages). Someone who is tall and beautiful, and commands a real authority whenever she is in the room. Her very presence is supposed to freeze the mortal man in fear. You will need to be available from August 12th to the 23rd, and willing to work late into the night since most of your scenes are technically night shoots. One shoot day will be during the day though, as it will be an indoor location with no windows.

Shoot planned to be from August 10th to August 23rd. It will be an effects heavy, action oriented short with lots of camera setups and lighting work. We hope to work as quick and efficiently as possible, but still expect to work long hours day and night to get my vision complete. I hope to make this a fun experience for all of us, so I hope you're interested!

First episode: https://youtu.be/U80JABY3F2o

     After the events of Matthew Minor's The Christain Sisters, Sherrie (Lydia Tirakis) and Kristi Christain (Sam Hartman) and their battle with the Dark Artisans catch young couple Erik (TBA) and Mari Walker (Courtnie Keaton) in the Demonic's crossfire. Realizing the Demonics are spreading and humanity is in far worse danger than expected, they use an ancient power to take them straight to the source. It's this decision that leads them to the leader of the Dark Artisans, Lady Elyssa (TBA), who they will learn has far more in common with them then they thought, in Matthew Minor's Christain Sisters Chapter Two.

Project: Tilted the Musical

Two foster children, Brooklyn (15) and Brandon (17), are making the transition from their foster homes to their new adoptive homes. Brooklyn, a highly talented young lady who is slightly shy, strong-willed, and pessimistic, conceals her best attributes because she does not know how amazing she is yet. She lives with her older brother, Brandon, who is a smooth talker and a semi-comedian who tells jokes only he thinks are funny. Though he seems to have it all together, he is constantly burdened by the fact that he doesn't feel he can follow his dreams of becoming an artist, which, according to his dad, is not an ideal choice for a black man.
