Director Statement

In 2020, I attempted to shoot an adaptation of the manuscript, but the pandemic ramped up, it became harder to film the project in its entirety and achieve that. I managed to film a small proof of concept piece, where I directed a small portion of the opening manuscript. In this particular scene, we reenacted part of the deadly cat and mouse foot chase between Detective Japp and Mason Dvorcheck.

My hope now is to get my crime thriller concept into the right hands and shot in its entirety. Any form of help is needed and welcomed. A simple donation of any amount on our Gofundme page, A repost, a share, some insight information or simply telling a friend about this post will help me greatly!
