MA is the story of a virgin mother on a pilgrimage to Las Vegas to give birth to our savior.
Her journey is visceral and violent, though this story is about love. We travel through dilapidated hotels with collapsing walls, empty deserts except for a lone trick-rope cowboy, drained out pools from past baptisms, freak rainstorms, and finally into a Las Vegas penthouse suite filled with show girls, prostitutes, chandeliers, and cherubs.
MA is about the end of the beginning. It’s about loneliness, and wanting to be more. Finally, it is about love: that of man, of nature, of god, of woman, and of possibility.
This will be a unique cinematic experience; truthful, distinct, and clear.
Please join me in bringing this very personal story to life.
The story is complete, the script is polished, and after an incredible scout in New Mexico and Nevada this summer, the locations have fallen perfectly into place.

The final and most humbling step in bringing MA to life is this: asking for your help. It simply won’t happen without you. There are sets to build, flights to book, professionals to pay, equipment to rent, and so much more.
I’m going to pour my entire being into bringing this story to life, and I will be forever grateful for whatever you can contribute, however small.
This project is my dream, and I can’t thank you enough for your support.
