Waterloo Sunset

Waterloo Sunset is a multi-narrative film that follows five friends, bound by aspirations of
art and an addiction to pleasure, who face the hard consequences of their choices.
Spinning in and out of each other's lives, these five men escape into the Austin TX social
scene, chasing that buzz, chasing that girl and trying to forget the past. But while living
the bar life they each have become shipwrecked in a town of wasted talents.

Director Statement

I grew up with the cinema of the seventies and was exposed to film production at an early age. I fell in love with it. Through the ups and downs in my own life, film and story telling has always been my passion. Waterloo Sunset is a very personal film about the consequences of our choices and lifestyle. It's about the fall out, the wake we create in this life and how it changes us. I look forward to showing it to different audiences.
