AGENTS (2013)

My new short film, Agents, is now online! I came up with the idea back in 2009 during the editing of Survival Of the Fittest (2009). The movie takes place in the same universe as Litterbugs (2005) and Survival Of The Fittest (2009), but focuses on a different group of characters. While this film is embedded in that world, it is still set up to go off and do its own thing.

The goal was to bring different groups of friends together and put them in one movie. The first two acts focus on a brotherhood, known as the Agents, and their conflict with an unfriendly bunch known as the Cobras. All of the action exists in the third act of the film and features neck snapping, knifing, and gunning down terrorists.

AGENTSposterDraft92

Agents is an upcoming action/thriller that I have been working on for three years. Production began in 2010 and the project was put on pause due to numerous reasons (mainly issues dealing with my own life that are not necessarily related to the movie itself). Filming resumed in 2013 and the vision I had in my head successfully translated into the final cut.

The idea was to bring different groups of friends together and put them in one movie. A heavy dose of camaraderie, toughness, and violence would all be necessary ingredients for this project. The first two acts focus on a brotherhood, known as the Agents, and their conflict with an unfriendly bunch known as the Cobras. All of the action exists in the third act of the film and features neck snapping, knifing, and gunning down bad guys...

BLOODY ICE CREAM (2013)

Bloody Ice Cream is a short film that gave me the opportunity to focus my efforts on being solely in front of the camera. It gave me the chance to go completely over the top with my character. As an actor in the movie, I had a blast during the production and I hope the audience has as much fun watching it as everyone had making it. Written and directed by W.D. Conine.

A busy college student has a horrible day when his less-than-stable roommate confronts him in this dark comedy.
