Levon

Ben is trapped in his own life. A wasted opportunity has landed him taking the same commute to the same unfulfilled job for the past 3 years.

Director Biography - Joey Martin

I was born in New Brunswick, NJ and currently live outside of Winston-Salem, NC. I graduated the Film & Video program at Piedmont Community College located in Yanceyville, NC. I first got my start when I was handed a camera in my early 20's to do a documentary about my late grandfather for his 90th birthday. From there my passion for creative, unique, and challenging projects in the field had grown. I've produced music videos for local musicians, video campaigns for local politicians, additional documentary genre videos, and a handful of micro-budget short films. "Levon" is my first official short film.

Director Statement

"Levon", a personal story with a dash of sci-fi, was a welcomed challenge from the beginning. As an unproven filmmaker I managed to get a group of the most hard working, talented, and trusting people to become apart of this project. For 8 months we put together a piece of art that was not only entertaining, but relatable too. While successfully completing "Levon" is in and of itself a great thing, the greatest achievement of this production is getting to showcase the terrific talent of the cast and crew. From the lead to the stand-in to the musical composer everybody shines. I hope you enjoy it as much as everyone had working on it! Thanks.
