Road 721

Road 721 is an allegory about global warming. Set in a number of California forests it tells the tale of Sam, a photo journalist from Los Angeles whose dream has been to write an essay about the state of forestry in the Redwoods as well as other wooded areas in the Western United States.

What he encounters on his journey is mysterious, puzzling and ultimately terrifying.

Road 721 is an environmental ghost story. A cautionary tale about our careless attitude toward the natural world and what occurs as a result of it.

Director Statement

I am a multimedia artist. In addition to filmmaking I work in the Studio creating fine art. My work is shown in NYC, Los Angeles, Canada and Santa Monica. I've created installations that incorporate video and fine art. I came to filmmaking with an artistic sensibility--every frame is an opportunity to shine visually. In addition, I've composed music my whole life and write the soundtracks for all of my films. For me, working in film gives me the opportunity to use all of the interests and skills I have.
