SUMMARY

Sandbox is an action short film that opens on five exhausted lost soldiers staggering through the bleak desert, when suddenly out of nowhere, they come under attack. Through the chaos, we learn the true nature of their mission, which is something unimaginable. 

WHO AM I? 

I am a filmmaker from Ashtabula, Ohio now based in Los Angeles, California.  

At 12 my twin Michael and I started making skateboard films which was the catalyst into filmmaking for both of us. At 18, after completing many short films and getting some attention from Academy Award winning producer Larry Meistrich, we made the move to Los Angeles to chase our dream as filmmakers. 

In 2011 I had an opportunity to shoot for the band Thirty Seconds to Mars on their world wide tour. During this time I was nominated for two MTV Video Music Award's [Cinematography and Editing] on their latest music video. Now I am back in Los Angeles continuing to pursue the dream to write and direct.

WHY SANDBOX?

Sandbox is a short story I've had for a few years and it's really evolved into one of my favorites. I love stories like this one because it's short, clever and full of action. I can't wait to transform this story into a short film and share it with everyone. 

WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING? 

The Kickstarter funds will specifically be used to get this film made from script to screen. Production costs include special effects, props, costumes, lights, camera rental, hard drives, film festival submissions etc.
