Director Statement

"Wake Up Dead" is a project near and dear to my heart. Based on a feature-length screenplay treatment, this One-Shot film follows Ryder- a young rocker whose hijinks the night before results in him being out past curfew- hungover.

This was the definition of a learning experience, and one I will never forget. I had the aid of my dear friend and talented cinematographer Mitchell Morgan, who managed to capture everything in-camera- and was instrumental to delivering a glimpse at what a larger project could look like. If you wait until the very end of the credits, you'll find that Ryder's story will (hopefully) extend beyond this small exploit.
