Experiencing Interruptions?


Petty (Jeremy Byrne), a small and sheepish man, has been accused of a crime he didnt commit. Following a heated argument regarding his recent firing from World Wide Healthcare (W.W.H.), his wife has been murdered. While being transferred after the trial, a sudden freak accident causes the paddy wagon to crash, and gives Petty the chance to escape. The problem: he is chained at the wrist to Reed (Tim Fields) intimidating in size, also abrupt and uncouth. As they make their way into the disused mines of the Colorado Mountains the police begin to track their trails only to be eventually found by Doctor Wendy Cooper (Michelle Ramjee Garland). The question quickly becomes: they have escaped their captors, but can they escape themselves?

Director Statement

As a director I want to give opportunities to minorities in the business. There is so much talent that isn't being tapped into. Asian, Black, Indian, and other non-Caucasian actor's are out there and it's my mission to give them all a platform to shine. As a director I not only want to entertain moviegoers but I want them to be able to relate to the characters that they see up on the screen. The human condition is universal and I want to help contribute in changing our perception as a society to reflect this.
