Who am I?
I am a writer-director-producer. I have been producing my own films for over six years and I have been in the production industry since high school (16 years). I have experience doing just about every job there is on set and I love every pain staking minute I spend there. I love to work quickly and get the production moving along.
Why I decided to do this?
I have always wanted to be a part of the film industry. I originally wanted to be an actor/stuntman. When I was younger I wanted to be Bruce Willis in Die Hard. After dreaming about it for a long time I tried to find a way to make it happen for me. I read an article in Back Stage West and it said that a good way to get known as an actor was to make your own movie and star in it. I ended up making my own Star Wars fan film called “A Deception of the Force”. I quickly noticed my lack of skill as an actor and realized it’s not what I wanted to do. I did however LOVE producing and directing my own movie. I knew quickly that I was going to be a director.
Why Dead Team?
I wanted to create an epic feeling adventure movie. It is not all about cheap scares and bloody violence. Don’t get me wrong it does have a lot of bloody violence but it is not what drives the story. It is very character driven and you will become to care about these characters and root them on. I would classify this movie as more of an action adventure than I would a horror movie.
It has a drama flare with a good mix of humor and of course lots of zombie killing action.
