Please Hold (2015)

Please Hold is a film about an Afghanistan and Iraq Combat Veteran named Jacob, who, while trying to pursue the next chapter in his life post-military service, is finding it incredibly difficult to get the help he needs in dealing with his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. After serving four tours as a United States Marine in the Middle East; Jacob has come back home to find an apathetic society who seems almost oblivious to the true trials and tribulations that he and his fellow veterans experience in these seemingly never-ending wars. The film invites the audience on a journey that many veterans experience while interacting with different segments of our society as they try to reintegrate themselves back to a life they have long forgotten; and depicts the hardships and frustrations that many veterans feel when they come back home.

Missing Silence (2012)

Missing Silence is a short experimental documentary that invites the audience to experience what it's like for a veteran to have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and how it can effect them. Using found footage and combinging the stories of many of my friends and peers into a singular voice; this film examines a life after service in the U.S. Military, post-9/11. This film is rated "R" for adult content.

Once More with Screaming (2007)

Have you ever asked yourself what it would be like if the dead walked again? More importantly, have you ever asked yourself what it would be like if those who came back decied to do a musical number? Before the popularity of shows like The Walking Dead; Once More with Screaming is a short zombie-musical that was produced for a film course I took during my undergraduate degree at the University of Sunderland. This film is rated "R" for adult content.
