ABOUT THE FILM

In my debut feature I'm following in the footsteps my favorite directors (Sam Raimi, David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch) by creating a challenging and stylish narrative.

Heavy Hands follows Anti-hero Jimmy Lee as he deals with the repercussions of a thoughtless and selfish act. 

Set in a harsh country landscape, Heavy Hands is a scary, funny and sexy picture filmed in Wisconsin, New York, Kansas and Colombia on super 8mm stock.

WHY KICKSTARTER

I've been working on this film for going on three years and have used every interesting and unique actor, location or resource I could.

Now it's time to really bring it home. Closing funds I raise through Kickstarter will help me finish editing, sound and any additional shooting that needs to be done. I'll also be looking to enlist the services of one bigger name professional actor/actress.

I know this film can be great. I need these finishing funds to bring the vision of this film full circle. 

MY GOALS FOR HEAVY HANDS

I want as many people to see and enjoy the film as possible. That's really the bottom line.

In the end I want to use the success of this film as the start of something bigger - not just for people in Milwaukee but for all the talented people I grew up with in Walworth County and all the people I've met in my travels.

So let's do this. Let's make it happen.
