About this project

While the imminent threat of a tornado brews in the distance, three lives converge; a  young woman battles with sociopathic urges, a Frenchman is thrown into an existential tailspin after he makes a surprising discovery and three year old "Flash Kid" is looked upon to keep it all together.  

Our team is very passionate about telling this story, the writer/director really just thinks that people are the most fascinating thing, their interactions, repercussions of their actions, the human spirit in all it's intricacies. 

The team is comprised of a talented and dedicated group of filmmakers and we are confident this film will run a solid festival circuit. The ultimate goal is to see this story turned into a feature length film.

Writer/director Patrick McKenzie (Phillip, Male Model) is teaming up with DP, Eli Born (Liars, No Age, Coldwar Kids videos) on Patrick's latest short film: To Keep Me From Me starring Stephane Olivier and Fabianne Therese, featuring an original score by Mads Heldtberg. This project spearheaded by award winning producer, Victory Palmisano.
