Everyone knows you need to make bad films before you can make good films.
Well, I definitely made some bad films. Even though I might not showcase these on the front page of my website, I'm still really proud of them. Each of these projects helped me grow as a filmmaker and an individual.

If I were to point to the project that made me want to start making films, it would be this one.
Cd in microwave
I think I was in sixth grade when I created this avant garde experimental piece. My goal was to subvert the themes frequently used by Jean Luc Godard during the French Impressionist Movement.

The Craigslist Roommate

During the 2016 Election season, I DP'd this short satire about the current political frontrunners.
Sick of Takeout
Fall of my Sophomore year, I DP'd this short comedy about two cynical zombies.
