The Tip of the Spear

After spending years writing and producing other people's film projects, I decided to take the leap and direct my own short film. I wanted to take all of the lessons that I had learned over years in film and television production (as well as a few friendly favors) and apply them to a story that had been percolating in my mind for a while. Seeking an affordable house for their growing family, Adam and Sarah move into a diverse, working-class neighborhood. Everything is perfect until Adam finds a goat’s head in the garbage can. Suspecting that his neighbors are responsible, Adam confronts them and sets off a series of terrifying events that leave him unable to feel at home ever again. The film played at Nightmares, Popcorn Frights and Another Hole In The Head Film Festivals.
