World Peace and a Pony

When her bandmates get mixed up in a bad drug deal, Onyx (Storm Franco), a social misfit with philosophical tendencies, must repay the debt to a druglord by extracting ecstasy from seagull corpses.

World Peace and a Pony is a subculture comedy in which reality is expanded through drug use and the law becomes an illusion. Likened to Clerks meets Broad City on ecstasy, it is congealed from equal parts philosophy and ridiculosity.

World Peace and a Pony means the world to me. It took years to write, and countless hours as producer, prop-maker, set designer, actor and editor. I'm extremely grateful to the cast and crew for believing in my vision and collaborating so beautifully to bring this project to life. I hope you enjoy this tiny window into my psyche.
