The past few weeks have been incredibly exciting for me. I was able to direct and produce back-to-back short films. First up was a comedy written by Shahn Christian Andersen and Mike Natale entitled “Lack of Will”. The story centers on a group of high school coaches who have all grown up together and now teach at the same school. A former childhood friend, “Will Anderson”, has just been hired as the schools new math teacher. However, the coaches aren’t happy because their pal is a disgraced NFL footballer who’s considered to be a social pariah. I had the pleasure of working with some great actors, including former New York Giant Tiki Barber. This film was shot at a real high school in lower Manhattan.
Second, I had the honor to direct a short film entitled “Like Me”. That story touched upon a very important topic, bullying. The script was written by a SUPER talented actress named Amanda Bear. We shot this film over the course of two days at a high school in New Jersey.
Both films are in post-production and should be ready for the world soon. I can’t wait!!!
