What happens to the Final Girl after a horror movie ends?
After surviving a horrific weekend at a remote cabin in the woods where all of her friends were brutally murdered, Ashley finds herself in handcuffs. Her story is extraordinary, and the cops who brought her in for questioning don’t believe a word of it. The FBI sends in a psychologist, Dr. Warren to determine whether Ashley is completely crazy, or if there’s more to her story…
I’ve also completed a feature length version of the script which I hope to get into development soon. It begins with the events of the short film, then follows Ashley as she tries to go back to her normal life, knowing nobody will believe what happened to her. Meanwhile, The Box begins to spread its evil once again. Ashley is recruited by Dr. Warren and her top secret organization “The Vigil”, comprised entirely of women who have survived horrific supernatural events, and together they try to stop The Box once and for all. Think of it as Evil Dead meets Charlie’s Angels.

Most fans know WSL Championship Tour surfer Courtney Conlogue for her warrior-like approach. But the Californian, who was runner-up to the World Title in 2016, also has an artistic side and a lifelong wanderlust that has led her to countless destinations worldwide. More recently, however, she followed her passion for surf, art and adventure to Havana, Cuba, where she immersed herself in the culture and chased some waves — more like wavelets, to be accurate — for laughs, learning and an unparalleled experience. Sea Change is the product of her trip, in partnership with Billabong Women’s. It’s a visual travelogue soaked in sunshine, laden with music and splashed with local surf and smiles. It’s a virtual passport to a place that, despite loosening borders, is still terra incognita for even the most intrepid of travelers. Until now.
TRIUMPH IN THE DESERT is a short documentary film focusing on the crew at BA Moto, and their passion for restoring British motorcycles from the 60’s and retrofitting them into race machines capable of taking on the brutal sport of desert racing. Follow along as they restore two 1969 Triumphs, then race them for the first time, in a story about taking the hard route to achieve something greater.

We’re launching a new YoutTube series called Handsome Police. It centers around Detectives Stacey Valentine and Johnny Babe, and their quest to fight crime while looking as good as possible. It’s a riff on the 70’s buddy cop show, but set in present day Los Angeles. Enjoy Episode 1!
Ellen Demsky is 74 years old and regularly runs marathons and competes in triathlons. She didn’t start racing until she was 60. Ellen is such a positive and energetic person, it’s hard to believe that she’s in her mid 70’s. As she put it “If she can do it at 74, you can do it.”
If you live in the greater Los Angeles area- whether that be in Venice, Malibu, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Downtown, East LA, or anywhere around or in between, Mountain High is in your backyard. This movie follows the new Mountain High pro team on a trip to the mountain, and documents an insanely fun season of snowboarding with wild times and proper tricks going down in what is one of the best terrain parks in the nation. Mountain High’s first feature film is directed by Matt Devino, produced by Brad Farmer and stars: Cory Cronk, Kyle Lopiccolo, Spencer Link, Harrison Gordon, Trever Haas, Nick Visconti, Ryan Paul, Marc Frank Montoya and all of their friends such as Trevor Jacob, Scott Blum, Jussi Oksanen, Ian Thorley, Mitch Richmond, Ian Sams, Jager Bailey and Yale Cousino just to name a few. Check it out!
This is a trailer for a feature length documentary film I’ve been working on in my free time with virtually no funding. I’m hoping to garner interest in the project with this trailer and use it to raise funding to complete the feature length film.
What is Snowboarding? A sport? A lifestyle? An art form? It’s a simple question with an almost infinite number of answers…
Definition: Snowboarding will be an in-depth look at all of the genres of Snowboarding through the eyes of Pro Riders and non-pros alike. I aim to create a film that both the general public and the hardcore snowboarder will enjoy, and to share all of the amazing aspects of riding instead of the homogenized X-Games/halfpipe riding most people are familiar with. Ultimately I want to inspire new people to go snowboarding for the first time, and reinvigorate current riders to get out there and enjoy their boards more often.
If you are interested in helping make this film a reality through funding or any other avenue please contact me at email@example.com
Special thanks to all the filmers that provided riding footage for this trailer.
