He hopes that his new movie is only the beginning of what is to come in his career. Outside of filmmaking, JJ works full time as a tour guide at a cavern and as a Band Tech for the popular Texas cover band, The Spazmatics.

Director Statement

"Beneath - A Cave Horror Film" is the first ever film allowed production inside this particular Texas cavern. Many well known filmmakers, including Robert Rodriquez, have tried to gain access, but were all denied due to the protection of the cave. "Beneath" was allowed production, only due to the fact that every cast and crew member is an employee of the cavern and have all gained the trust from the management. The cast used their tour guide performing skills and incorporated it into their acting, although this was their first acting job. We hope you enjoy our film!
