Submissions for the annual 2018 GenCon Film Festival are now closed.
Film I submitted this year is:
Co-Producer, Director, Co-Writer, Editor
We are currently waiting to see if GenCon will accept our film as an official selection.
We got busy this year with the production of Dark Trepidation. Filming began on the weekend of Feb. 9 and ended on March 18 with a couple makeup days. It was awhile since I sat in the directors chair but it all came back to me and with the best production crew I could ever ask for we got it done.
"I'm proud of every crew person that worked for me during this production and I will gladly work with each and everyone of you again and recommend you to any other production you guys want to work for."
