CHAGRIN FALLS

(WRITER / DIRECTOR)

HD narrative short film // completed in 2007 // 17 minutes

A struggling cartoonist goes searching for his own personal J.D. Salinger.  Chagrin Falls was the recipient of Northwestern University's 2007 Studio 22 minor production grant.  Though crewed entirely by students, the project was extracurricular and did not result in class credits for anyone.


KATFISH

(WRITER / DIRECTOR)

DV narrative short film // completed in 2004 // 10 minutes

A geeky undergrad battles his way through his chaotic dorm hallway to recover a compromising sketch. Katfish was the recipient of Northwestern University's 2004 Studio 22 freshman production grant.  I co-directed the film with media maker (and my then-roommate) Ian Bennett.


RECORD BREAKING

16mm narrative short film // completed in 2005 // 5 minutes

(DIRECTOR)

DV narrative miniseries // completed in 2006 // 18 minutes

 

PASS/FAIL EPISODE 4- SECRETS

(WRITER)

DV narrative miniseries // completed in 2006 // 13 minutes

Pass/Fail was the result of a student-organized class at Northwestern University in the Spring of 2006. The premise of the class was that we would develop and produce a 4-episode miniseries, each with a 2-act structure. The premise of the show is that there once were four teaching assistants who were all pretty dysfunctional people.
