I'm just another independent filmmaker trying to make it. Through my favorite genre of Dark Comedy, I always hope to laugh in the face of chaos. With this, I'm very grateful, and very proud of this short film, and our entire 'Los Angeless' anthology project. To all of my friends and family who've helped bring this into fruition, I love and thank you.
