About this project

This project has been waiting in the wings for years. Back in 2007, I was deployed to Afghanistan and learned about an ancient underground waterway system called a Karez.  The system is a network of tunnels and vents thousands of miles long that provide water from the mountains to the lowlands.  The tunnels have been used for ages to transport contraband, move unnoticed, and hide safely. 

Your support will help drive my project from its beginning framework as a story into a solid, marketable screenplay, ready for the studio.

This is a vampire story, clear and simple.  Full of horror. Drama. Pain. And yes, blood.

He was a young soldier from the 82nd Airborne Division, on his first Afghan deployment after being to Iraq one time already.  15 months of deployment in a dusty, arid place. When spring arrived, his unit was tasked with clearing miles of underground tunnels insurgents were using for operations and caches.  Clearing one tunnel, something went very, very wrong...

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges of this project are primarily attached to the time aspect of it. I have the story and timeline, and this project will give it the substance to create the screenplay.

I am a tenacious worker, and am excited to see this through. I have friends and neighbors in the film industry, and will look to them for advice when roadblocks pop up.
