My short film “The Geologist” is officially public!

Starring Richard Elfman, and winner of Best Narrative Short Film at the LBCC film fest this past month, I’m very proud of the crew and cast!

An aging geologist (Richard Elfman) is working in the desert when he finds a strange rock that won’t leave him alone!

This idea stemmed from my love of The Twilight Zone growing up, and really grew into the film as it is now. I really liked the idea of a dusty desert contrasted by the strange color and actions of the rock.
