Director Statement

Beneath the Boards is a project that is near and dear to my heart. Two years down the road after conception I had the privilege to bring this project to life, a feat when it seems no film actually wants to be made. With a rich score, beautiful cinematography, extensive set design and nuanced acting I couldn't be more proud of this project and everyone who helped create it. Mixed in 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound, this film is sure to creep out and entertain any audience on the other side of the screen.
