Over the past three years Ive been working towards my Masters in Film at NYUs Tisch School of the Arts. During my time at school Ive had the opportunity of interning for Spike Lee on his most recent documentary ( If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise ), worked on dozens of films in all capacities, and wrote, directed, produced, and edited five of my own short films?, but now its time for the big one!
At the end of May I finished the graduate curriculum and began working towards shooting my thesis film, "HENRY", which will be my final film in graduate school. Besides being the final step in receiving my masters, this film represents the beginning of my professional career as a writer/director.
? "HENRY is a coming of age film drawn from my own personal experience as an 12 year-old altar boy growing up in Queens, New York. Henry is a young altar boy who witnesses another altar boy steal wine at church one Sunday morning. Nave, impressionable and too serious for his age, Henry spends the following days obsessing on whether or not hell inform the Priest of the theft.
I have set my budget and have a projected shoot date in Spring of 2011. I am raising $5,000 of my budget through this website, which is
how you can help. Donations at any level are greatly appreciated and
