Why am I making Moon Warrior?
- It's a thesis/passion project involving some of my all-time favorite horror monsters.
- My mission for Moon Warrior is to remove the tawdry images of sparkling, shirtless, brooding tweens that have tragically become synonymous with vampires and lycans by bringing back that heart-pounding scare these noble creatures held over our collective psyche for centuries.
What is Moon Warrior About?
- Moon Warrior is a story about the awkwardness of first dates, love, hate, and misconception told through the eyes of monsters, but most importantly it's a personal criticism on the ongoing criminal misuse of classic horror monsters. Told as a dark comedy, my characters live in the same "Twilight" crazed world and they're outraged. No longer do they live in secrecy, not while there's a war outside - a war on their long feared reputation as "Creatures of the Night." They're taking arms (literally) and fighting back.

What are the benefits of investing in this film?
- You will be bringing the Horror back to Werewolves and Vampires.
- You'll also be a part of something great. Something with great potential of becoming a feature.
- Not to mention you’d be helping a student filmmaker get his bachelor’s degree.
- Plus awesome rewards for your generous donations.
What is my plan after shooting Moon Warrior?
- My plan is to enter Moon Warrior into many festivals with the plans of turning this and other scripts of mine into feature films.
Please watch the first 5 minutes of Moon Warrior. Shot in one day with a meager budget, it's a "forgotten 80's B-movie" the couple is watching on their date. I hope it'll get you excited for what's to follow. I promise you, it will be EPIC!
