These independent short films were produced in Michigan with no budget. All that remains is music and then on to the festival circuit.
The short films Secondhand and Kill Patrick have received rave reviews in closed audiences. Now it's time to see what the rest of the world thinks! Help me get these films in front of a broader audience in the festival circuit. Festival fees are $50 per entry on average and that adds up! With a donation of $25 or more, you'll get the opportunity to see the films in their entirety for yourself.
Elliot escapes from busy, city life to a small, rural town to concentrate on writing a book. The town has its own problems in the way of quirky characters and a beautiful ghost from the 19th century.
Murder strikes a Detroit, high-rise apartment building. The building owner, superintendent, a repair man and a private investigator all wanted Patrick dead. But only one of them killed him in this found footage murder mystery.
Thanks for your support!

Submitting my films to the festivals is the first step. Once accepted into a festival, my films will then be judged on several merits, including production value, entertainment value, music, direction, writing, acting, etc.
If the judges agree that my film is successful in any or all of these categories, my film will be chosen as a winner. If not, I will still have the success of it screening at the festival venue and will have gained additional exposure.
Secondhand was shot at many locations including Greenmead Historical Village in Livonia, MI; Baumgartner House Museum in Fraser, MI; and New Haven, Michigan Train Depot.
Kill Patrick was shot at Roberts Riverwalk Hotel in Detroit, MI.
