Private Project

The Quest for Suki

A gullible sweepstakes entrant determines something is awry when his big win lands him a meeting with the mayor's evil twin.

Julius lives in a larger-than-life New Mexico, where 70 years ago the bitter War of New Mexico almost destroyed the Southwest, and as a result, everything today is a bit... stranger. A local museum proudly claims to hold 'The Bluest Painting in the World.' Caffeinated Malt Beverages are still legal. Brain-eating amoebas are harvested in glowing syringes. And a sinister plot is out to ruin Julius' life for no good reason. Sometimes life is just absurd.

Director Statement

The Quest for Suki is an adventure movie about blackmail, independence, blissful ignorance, and the fact that fate never takes us where we want or think we should be. It's a little weird, but so is life! I hope you enjoy our work.

This was the first feature I’ve ever produced or directed. I wrote and directed the film while in college, with edit revisions completing a few months after graduation. Funding came from myself, fellow producer and high-school friend Eric Munk, and some crowdsourcing. Filming took place primarily in and around Albuquerque, New Mexico with some B-unit shots in Auburn, Alabama.

We are proud of the film’s completion as well as humbled by the lessons we learned while producing it.
