My award nominated short, F NEWS

Written, produced, directed and costarring yours truly, this film came by way of a independent hire to write and direct something starring our lead, Ethan Simpson. We filmed entirely outside on February 1st, 2021 in under 7 hours. The lowest of budgets and preproduction time, not to mention skeleton crew, I am tremendously proud to bring this to an award nominated ending. Watch it now!
